Question: I have eczema on my face – can I use an exfoliating brush?

Good day Dr Maureen, I suffer from very sensitive eczema on my face, I would like to purchase the Sorbet facial brush, is it advisable for me to use such an electronic facial brush or should I avoid them? My skin flakes very often and I think the brush will help with light exfoliation.


I would suggest to avoid any facial brushes as you can increase irritation on the skin. For now I would recommend a very gentle exfoliater that you can use on your skin once a week for the flakiness.  Always apply a moisturiser but the moisturiser must be a light textured moisturiser and an SPF.
