Choosing a sonic cleanser is sort of an overwhelming process. I’ve spent my fair share of time standing there trying to decide which one is the best. I have yet to make the splurge though because I’m still debating my options. Are you in the same boat? The products are designed to give your facial skin a deep cleaning. There are many versions on the market, which can make it hard to settle on the one that’s best for you. Before choosing a sonic cleanser, weigh your options, then talk to your dermatologist.
1. Your Needs
Do you have acne? Or dry skin? Oily skin? No matter what’s going on with your skin, taking it into consideration before choosing a sonic cleanser is important. You want a product that combines with skincare treatments that address your special needs so that the sonic cleanser does the best job for you that it can. Read the specs for each product to make your choice.
2. Hands Free
A sonic cleanser means not having to use your hands to wash your face anymore. That’s wonderful because your hands aren’t the cleanest things on your body so they may be transferring bacteria and germs to your face that are causing breakouts and other skin issues. By choosing a sonic cleanser, you do a deeper, more thorough job of washing up, which often translates to better looking skin.
3. Some Go Overboard
Sonic cleansers come in a range of prices, so you can easily find one that fits your budget. However, some manufacturers might trick you into shelling out for features that you do not need or are generally unnecessary. Before grabbing one that appears to have all the bells and whistles, make sure you aren’t spending on a sonic cleanser that has features you’ll never use.
4. Too Much is Not Good
Just like anything in life, more isn’t always better. When it comes to using sonic cleansers, many dermatologists say that women tend to go overboard and use the product too often. This can result in red, irritated skin that doesn’t feel or look good. Make sure you are following the directions exactly when using your sonic cleanser. And, if you are noticing any irritation, cut back on usage and talk to your dermatologist.
5. Bristle Texture
When I think about using a sonic cleanser that is too rough, I cringe. Can you image cleaning your face with a hard bristle? Me neither. When you choose a sonic cleanser, run your hand over the bristles to get a sense of how tough or soft they are. You want those that are gentle on the skin and aren’t going to cause damage to your delicate facial skin.
6. It Requires Maintenance
Just like any other beauty product in your cache, sonic cleansers must be cleaned and maintained to get the most benefits. The directions that accompany your product should give you clear and precise directions regarding how often to clean your sonic cleanser as well as steps on how to do so. Make sure you follow them so you can always get the most out of your sonic cleanser.
7. Consult Your Doctor
Like I said before, it’s always a good idea to talk to your dermatologist before using a sonic cleanser. He or she can give you tips on which items are the best choices and can give you directions for appropriate use for your specific skin needs and conditions.
