Using a facial cleansing brush when you wash your face is one of the best things you can do to ensure every last bit of makeup, oil, dirt, and grime from the day is completely removed. Aside from cleansing, facial brushes also offers the side benefit of gently exfoliating the skin and therefore sloughing away dead skin cells and other impurities for a brighter and more even complexion.
