3 Ways To Wash Your Face Without Actually Touching It

3 Ways To Wash Your Face Without Actually Touching It

Touching your face is gross. But no matter how hard we try to keep our dirty fingers off our faces, we end up transferring germs (among many other things) onto our skin.

So we’ve been experimenting with face washing methods that limit our skin-to-skin contact. Here are three ways to get all that gunk out of your pores without actually touching your face.

Face Mitts

These glove-like bathing accessories fit snugly onto your hand, and many of them are made from plant-based materials. Simply squeeze your favorite cleansing cream, gel or foam onto the mitt and gently scrub your face. If you have sensitive skin, we recommend first trying out a face mitt on the inside of your arm or the back of your hand.

Facial Sponges

We’ve spotted facial sponges floating around in water bowls at recent beauty events. And after getting our hands on them, we now know why brands are making such a big fuss. The super soft sponges build a rich lather to wash away a day’s worth of dirt and makeup. Plus, the rounded shape makes it easy to get into those tight corners around the nose.

Facial Cleansing Brushes

By now, you’ve probably heard beauty fanatics raving about some facial cleansing brush called the Clarisonic. The oscillating tool is definitely a mainstay in our evening cleansing ritual, but there are a few other options on the market that are just as great at a fraction of the cost. The great thing about them all is that you can push a button and let the brush go to work.
