If softer skin is one of your New Year’s Resolutions, toss your loofah, and allow us to introduce you to the LUNA™ 4 Body. Upgrade your body care routine with FOREO’s smart, silicone, massaging body brush that’s a shower routine luxury, and necessity. The LUNA 4 Body is an ultra-hygienic massaging brush that cleanses deeply to reduce breakouts on the body, rid strawberry skin, and prevent ingrown hairs. The cleansing brush does this by removing dead skin cells and unclogging pores, without being abrasive on the skin.

FOREO tells us that our skin accumulates over 4 kilos of dirt and dead skin cells in a year. And that’s why they’ve created a 100% waterproof, bacteria-resistant, quick-drying, and non-porous silicone body brush that’s clinically proven to remove 99% of dirt and oil from skin.

We spoke to Dr. Rebecca Marcus, MD, FAAD, Board-Certified Dermatologist to learn more about FOREO’s LUNA™ 4 Body Cleansing Device, and hear her expert advice on pursuing a journey to healthier, glowing skin. Keep reading to see the highlights!

What are some benefits of FOREO’s LUNA 4 Body Cleansing Device?

1. Enhanced circulation. “The LUNA™ 4 Body Cleansing Device uses T-Sonic™ pulsations to provide gentle exfoliation, enhanced microcirculation, and a complete clean to skin on the body,” Dr. Rebecca Marcus tells Sheen. “Those who suffer from folliculitis, body acne, keratosis pilaris, or dry skin, as well as those desiring smoother skin, can benefit.”

2. Clearer skin. Dr. Rebecca Marcus says “by ensuring complete removal of dirt, sweat and oil from the skin, the LUNA™ 4 body can help keep pores clear and lessen the chance of acne taking hold, especially in acne-prone areas such as the chest, shoulders and back. Keratosis pilaris and folliculitis are two conditions that can improve with gentle exfoliation. However, in both cases, exfoliating too aggressively can make them worse. LUNA™ 4 body offers just the right degree of gentle exfoliation to help improve these conditions without irritating or risking exacerbation.”

3. Tightens loose skin. With FOREO’s signature T-Sonic massage pulsations, the device also boosts collagen and improves the appearance of cellulite by targeting fluid that accumulates in collagen pockets while helping to distribute the fat deposits. This keeps the skin strong, elastic, and less likely to pucker!

The LUNA 4 Body Cleansing Device vs. traditional body brushes…

“One important difference is that the LUNA™ 4 Body is made from medical grade silicone touch points. Unlike nylon bristles which can harbor bacteria and can be abrasive on skin, these silicone touch points are gentle and ultra-hygienic. In fact, Luna’s silicone has been shown to be 35 times more hygienic than nylon bristles. The T-Sonic™ pulsations not only do an excellent job removing dirt, oil and dead skin cells, but also provide a massage that is relaxing and increases microcirculation in the skin.”

How does our facial skin differ from the skin on our body?

“Facial skin is thinner and more delicate than skin on the body,” Dr. Rebecca Marcus explains. “In addition, facial skin contains a higher density of sebaceous glands. Facial skin is usually more exposed to UV radiation than most of the rest of the body, and therefore prone to DNA damage caused by UV radiation and other environmental toxins.”

What is the biggest misconception when it comes to skin health?

“The one thing I hear over and over again from my patients when I ask them if they wear daily sunscreen is ‘No, but I don’t go in the sun.’ I wish that everyone knew that UV radiation is everywhere when the sun is up. It comes through glass, so your skin is exposed when you are driving, when you are inside sitting by a window, or when you run out to the mailbox for a minute or walk the dog. Every little bit adds up, and therefore it’s important to wear sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher on sun-exposed areas each and every day.”

How to properly care for the body’s skin…

1.Dr. Rebecca Marcus urges us to not “overlook the skin on your body – it needs skincare too! Gentle exfoliation twice weekly will help to keep skin smooth and prevent dull, dead skin cells from building up, which will ensure that skin is primed for moisturizer.”

2. “Moisturizing cream should ideally be applied within 2-3 minutes of exiting the shower or bath. Make sure to bathe with water that is warm but not hot, as too hot water can be very drying,” she says. “If you are prone to seborrheic dermatitis or tinea versicolor (a common fungal infection that commonly appears on the trunk and causes discolored scaly patches on the body), try washing once a week with an anti-fungal shampoo such as Head and Shoulders to prevent this condition from recurring.”

3. Be intentional about the soaps and cleansers you choose. “Those who are prone to body acne may benefit from a body cleanser containing salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide,” Dr. Rebecca Marcus suggests. “When using a shampoo or cleanser with an active ingredient such as these, it’s helpful to allow the product to sit on the skin for a few minutes before rinsing to allow ingredients a chance to work.”
