The Essential of The Daily Skincare Routine:
Tips of Correct Use of Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush



What is a sonic facial cleansing brush?

Scratchy and rough, this is what come into our mind when hearing about brushes. Apparently, this does not go well with skincare or facial cleansing in our imagination, especially with particularly delicate areas of skin, like area around the eyes. However, the sonic facial cleansing brush still has some benefits for our facial cleansing.

It removes dead skin, sebum, and dirt from our skin more efficiently. When using together with cleansing lotions, it can achieve deep cleansing, loosen dirt in clogged pores and remove blackheads. In addition, the soft bristles promote blood circulation in the skin and thus facilitate the supply of nutrients to the skin, which prevents premature skin aging.

Manual face brush or electric face brush?

Both have their advantages and disadvantages. Continue reading and find out more.

  • Manual and handheld face brush


The classic manual facial cleansing brushes, mostly with a wooden handle, have been used for facial cleansing for over 30 years. Depending on your personal taste, natural bristles, e.g. made from horse mane hair, or plastic bristles are available to work with the washing lotion to do the cleansing.

The practical size of a wooden brush and the low price make these face brushes ideal for travel.

  • Electric face brush


With different brush attachments and different degrees of hardness, the electric face brush is flexible and able to fit different skin types. This is why electric face brush is getting popular and why we recommend you to use. Some models even come with replaceable brush heads for both cleansing and massage.

Similar to manual brushes, rotating face brushes move in circular movements over the skin. Oscillating brushes vibrate at the sound frequency and make the skin vibrate without pulling on it. Oscillating brushes that made of silicone is super soft and ultra-gentle, which is best fit for sensitive skins.

Benefits of electric sonic facial cleansing brushes:

    1. The bristles, either made of silicone or plastic, produce an intense peeling effect.
    2. It will remove dead skin cells and blackheads from the skin.
    3. Sensitive skin is not additionally stressed.
    4. The vibrations are gentler on the skin.

These are good reasons to persuade yourself to have an electric sonic facial cleansing brush.

Use sonic facial cleansing brush properly.

In order to achieve the best possible result when using a facial cleansing brush, we have a few little but useful tips for you. Usually the manufacturers suggest you to use the brush daily, morning and evening. However, dermatologists and pharmacists advise against overstraining our face skin. It is sufficient to apply a sonic facial cleansing brush cleansing once a day.

  • Is sonic facial cleansing brush suitable for my skin?

Generally, a facial cleansing brush is suitable for almost all skin types.

For normal skin, facial cleansing brushes help remove flakes of skin, sebum, and dirt. The sonic facial cleansing brush helps to improve the complexion of sensitive, oily, and dry skin.

However, mechanical face brush may still cause redness on sensitive skin, though it is soft and gentle. In this case, a face brush with sonic vibration is recommended instead of a rotating face brush. In order not overloading on your sensitive skin, keep in mind to just use the face brush once a day.

If you used to use scrubs, you are also recommended to use a facial cleansing brush as a better alternative. Because peeling by scrubs may cause redness or even damage to our delicate face skin.

  • Caution! Please do not use a face brush if:

>You are sunburned.
>You have injured skin.
>You have inflamed skin.
>You have acne.
>You also use scrubs.

Which areas does the facial cleansing brush clean?

As the name suggests, the facial cleansing brush is primarily intended for the use of face skin. But of course, you can also use the brush to clean other sensitive skin areas. Face brushes are great for:

>Forehead and bridge of the nose.
>Chin and jaw.

What kind of skincare products can be used with a facial cleansing brush?



We use sonic facial cleansing brush for a better cleansing and don’t want to cause any injury or damage to the skin, so never use a facial cleansing brush on dry skin. Always rinse and wet your face before using the sonic facial cleansing brush to cleanse your face.

There is no special restriction on skincare product selection in our daily facial care routine when using a facial cleansing brush.

Use a skincare product that exactly fits your skin type, age, or desired effect.

>Anti-aging cream
>Moisturizing lotions
>Facial soaps
>Facial toner
>Fast absorbing day creams

Night creams and creams that are oilier should only be applied after using a sonic facial cleansing brush. Because oily creams are only slowly absorbed into the skin and should not be massaged in so that they can develop their full nourishing effect.

How often should you use a facial cleansing brush

While the benefits of a facial cleansing brush are undeniable, it’s essential to strike the right balance when it comes to frequency.

Overusing a facial cleansing brush can lead to irritation, dryness, and even damage to the skin barrier. On the other hand, underusing it may not get the desired results. So, how often should you use a facial cleansing brush?

The answer depends on several factors, including your skin type, sensitivity, and the specific brush you are using. Generally, it is recommended to use a facial cleansing brush 2-3 times per week. This frequency allows for a thorough cleanse and exfoliation without causing excessive irritation or dryness.

However, it’s crucial to listen to your skin and adjust the frequency accordingly. If you notice any signs of irritation, such as redness or flakiness, consider reducing the frequency to once a week or less. Conversely, if your skin can tolerate more frequent use, you may choose to use the brush every day.

The key is to find a balance that works for your unique skin needs.
