Why Should You Use A Brush To Apply Moisturiser

By: Sneha A

Did you know that you can apply moisturisers by using a brush? Yes, you read it right. Skin experts have been suggesting us to use brushes to apply not just makeup but also moisturisers. We can also find many skin care professionals in saloons using brushes often to apply moisturisers on our skin.

Now, the question arises, what are the benefits of applying a moisturiser with a brush? We have been doing well applying it with our fingers.

Since so many years makeup experts have been claiming that the warmth of our hands lets the skin absorb the moisture and makeup in a better way, then what has caused this change of perception?

Well, there are numerous reasons as to why one should be using a brush rather than fingers to apply not just makeup but also a moisturiser on the skin. It is beneficial both for the hands as well as the skin of the face.

All you need to keep in mind is that the brush that you opt for should be synthetic, non-allergic and non-absorbent in nature.

Also, you have to know the technique of how to apply a moisturiser with a brush, well you already know it, just like how you apply a foundation and Voila, you've got it!


1. Smoother

When you use a brush instead of your hands to apply a moisturiser on your skin, you get a smoother and better coverage. It gives you an even application and helps to set a smooth, hydrated base for the foundation to set in. You will get a much even result than what you get by hands.


2. Clean make up

A moisturiser when applied with hands can let your makeup slip around and you may also have issues in proper blending of it with the skin; however, with a brush you need not worry about any such thing. Pick a brush and see the difference.


3. Neat Application

While applying a moisturiser with a brush, you can easily skip the areas like eyebrows for proper application of brow makeup later. If you apply with hands, there is a greater chance that you may put some of it on your eyebrows too that can later become fussy while using a brow pencil.


4. Avoids Pimples

There is always a chance that you will transfer bacteria from your hands to the skin of you face. As the face skin is extremely sensitive, you may end up getting pimples and other such problems.


5. Cleanliness

The area beneath our nails is usually not very perfectly clean; they tend to retain oils and bacteria that you will definitely not want on your face, especially if you are prone to acne.


6. Brush Massage

The massaging effect and feel that one gets during the application process is not just relaxing, but is also very good for the skin. It will increase the blood circulation and help you in getting a brighter face.


7. Brush Is The Best

It is a perfect solution for those who do not like to get their hands messy. Applying full makeup is a long process; and if you are using your hands, you may have to wash them way too many times. For all such people using a brush is an answer to their prayers.
