The face brush is one of this year’s must-haves. Face brushes are proven to exfoliate your skin while cleaning out pores. But, unlike most exfoliators, face cleansing brushes can be used daily. According to “Drop a Decade From Your Face,” on the Dr. Oz website on October 31, 2012, “The gentle exfoliation removes the top layer of dead skin that makes your face look dull. It also allows anything meant to treat the skin including creams, serums or salicylic acid lotions to soak in more thoroughly.” When Dr. Mitchell Goldman of UCSD was asked on Fox News what people should do to prevent acne, he responded, “The most important thing is cleaning the skin. We’ve talked about using one of those clarisonic brushes, and that actually cleans the pores out, and you should be cleaning them every day, about twice a day is fine, it takes care of all of the environmental pollutants.” Clarisonic Brushes can range from $120 to $200. But, Target sells brands like Olay, Neutrogena and Pretika electronic face cleansing brushes for under $50.
