The official, baby brush method thread, for exfoliating

although its a baby brush it does feel a bit rough? i saw a facial brush from natural bristles in a shop the other day maybe that would be better

Most facial brushes are softer and don't do much for exfoliation, but if you feel the baby's hair brush is too rough for you, it wouldn't hurt to try a facial brush. Just be gentle. :) Did you let hot water run over the baby's hair brush before you used it? That helps significantly!

(NdnRomeo said he didn't mind me answering ?s here...) :)

Hey everyone.

I just bought the baby brush today and used it only a few hours ago. Since then, my skin has become noticeably redder and my scars are more visible than usual. Is this what exfoliation does? Or maybe my scars are more visible because i haven't exfoliated in so long and that the dead skin is all finally off? To get rid of the scars, would you say this is neccessary?

Any help would be great :)

Excuse me if my questions are simple, it's just i've never used exfoliation ever since 'exfoliation scrubs' in the past which only lead to more breakouts for me.

Lol never mind. My skin looks way better and feels lighter this morning :) More 'dewy' and no redness :razz: I reckon it was only red because there so much gunk (Dead skin) on my face that had to be sloughed and the result was that the skin underneath wasn't expecting it and was a bit raw.

I'll updtae from time to time

Yup, it will die down :). That happens with exfoliator alot, but it subsides =)

It's normal to be red. Another example is getting microderm. It's red for a long time after but what happens is a good portion of old skin is exfoliated to leave smooth soft skin underneath. Just be sure not to pop any whiteheads and you will be okay :).

Moisturizer is an added bonus, if you do not want to use one that would be your call but it does help too.

My acne is mostly small red dots that rarely form to whiteheads, focused on my cheeks near my mouth. This could be something helpful. I'm going to pick up a baby brush tonight, and start trying this method. I'll let you know my results.

YAY! I found 2 yesterday, I got an actually baby brush for 3.99 at london drugs, and then I went to the dollar store and found a lil round face brush thing $1 ... I got them home and the one from the dollar store is actually softer and better. It comes with a lid too. I used it last night and it seemed to smooth my skin out a bit =)

what about a clean toothbrush :D?

I use a soft toothbrush, it works fine. I actually prefer it because I can target area's I know to be flaky without irritating other sections of my face like I would be doing with a larger brush. :)

just wondering if hot water is really best or might very cold water be better? I've tried it both ways and the super cold water way feels less irritating...since it's closing your pores and preventing any oils and dead cells from being worked into your skin by the brush, maybe it's better?

warm, since cold does not get much off of your face

i've started doing the exfoliation in the morning, and simply following it up with some moisturizing vaseline. red marks have either faded or are much less visible and spots are not a problem. i skipped a day and my face healed up a bit, i guess it needed rest. i just tried every other day and apparently that isn't enough. once a week of rest with this might be what i need. so far though my skin is looking great, and it's all thanks to the baby brush.
