Skincare is getting incredibly high tech these days - there are tools for plumping out wrinkles and fading hyperpigmentation, but what’s there for acne-prone skin? Well, more than you’d think! Alongside the right skincare ingredients and skincare techniques, there’s one more thing you can add to your arsenal when it comes to getting clearer skin: beauty tools!
Specifically, three kinds: cleansing brushes, LED spot treatments, and LED masks. No harmful pore vacuums here! Read on to find out how these skincare tools will help you on your journey to clearer skin.
1) Cleansing Brushes
Facial cleansing brushes, specifically ultrasonic cleansing brushes, go a long way to helping clear skin. They’re designed to help get rid of every single trace of residue and dead skin cells that could clog pores, ensuring your skin stays clear and free of blackheads and other breakouts.
Cleansing brushes are so much more effective than manually using your hands to wash your face - and your skin will really notice the difference. However, cleansing brushes are a powerful tool and need to be used properly to help your skin get the best results!
Ultrasonic facial cleansing brushes help to really clean your skin by gently exfoliating with thousands of tiny bristles - while the benefits of physical exfoliation include clearer skin and fewer breakouts, it’s important not to over-exfoliate and compromise your skin’s acid mantle.
Using a cleansing brush a few times a week is more than enough for most people to ensure that their skin is perfectly cleansed and ready for the rest of their routine - plus, free of any excess dead skin cells that could clog pores.
Designed with easy to sanitise bristles, this cleansing brush from Foreo is perfect for deep cleaning skin.
2) Blue Light Therapy
When it comes to spot treatments, most of us think of drying creams that bleach sheets and dry out skin - but did you know that you can get an effective spot treatment in skincare tool form? And science backs it up, too! Blue light therapy is at just the right wavelength to kill bacteria, especially C Acnes, the kind that likes to live in pores and cause those pesky breakouts.
And that’s not even the best thing about it - unlike topical treatments which can cause irritation, blue light therapy can be used as often as needed to bring down breakouts for clearer skin. You also don’t need to worry about avoiding certain skincare ingredients after using blue light therapy, either - it fits perfectly into any skincare routine!

3) LED Masks
I know what you’re thinking - aren’t these better for anti-ageing? Well, LED masks aren’t a one trick pony. Targeting acne is about more than just getting skin squeaky clean and killing acne-causing bacteria - it’s also about reducing inflammation and supporting your skin’s natural healing processes! Focusing on this helps your skin to bounce back faster, making sure any pesky post-breakout dark spots don’t stick around for as long.
LED masks, like the Foreo UFO, can emit different wavelengths and colours of light to benefit your skin - and combined with sheet masks that utilise Korean technology and formulas, your skin is sure to clear up in no time. Using inflammation-reducing wavelengths on active acne will also help relieve some of the discomfort from inflamed breakouts.
