One of the biggest reasons to use a face mask brush is to prevent any dirt, oil or germs that may be hanging out on your hands from soiling your clean face. This can cause unwanted breakouts, which is what you’re hoping to avoid by using a face mask in the first place! And when you use a face mask brush, it should be as clean as possible for the same reason. Just wash with warm water, and add a gentle cleanser if needed. Consider a two-pack of brushes in order to clean one while using the other.

A face mask brush seems like such a trivial thing, but it really can elevate the entire experience of applying and wearing a face mask. A full-size brush with a silicone paddle most closely resembles the ones used at the spa, and can get into the contours of the face. For a cooling, anti-inflammatory effect, store your mask in the fridge before applying.
