Which Electric Brush is Appropriate for my Skin Type: Nylon Bristles or Silicone Bristles?

May 19, 2020


Cleaning your face is the most basic step to ensure healthy skin.

We use various products like face washes, face scrubs, exfoliators, and masks etc. to get a squeaky clean face but the most emerging trend in skin care these days is using a face brush for cleansing.

A facial brush comes in many kinds. The two most popular types of facial brushes are a nylon bristle facial brush and a silicone bristles facial brush.

If you are new to using facial brushes, then this post will be insightful for you to decide whether a bristle facial brush is better or whether you prefer silicone.


1. Silicone Brushes Are Gentler on the Skin

One of the major differences between nylon bristle facial brushes and silicone bristles brushes are the way they make your skin feel. Nylon bristles brushes tend to be harder because of their firm bristles. Due to this, they may irritate your skin especially if you are using them for the first time. Now, if you have a though skin and need something a little bit more aggressive this may be your option. 

However, with time the bristles of brush tend to become softer which can make cleansing convenient for you. Moreover, if you use a bristle facial brush with caution it won’t even feel that hard. The key is to use the brush gently.

On the other hand, a silicone bristles facial brush is very gentle to the skin and can be use for all skin types.
