If you've already picked up a Foreo Luna device – or if you're on the fence about investing – you might be wondering how to make the most of this quirky little skincare saviour. It's a question we hear a lot from customers, so you're not alone. As a Luna owner myself, I mostly use this device when I'm travelling and don't want to use up space in my carry-on luggage with my Clarisonic Plus. The most important thing to remember about any skincare device is to listen to your skin and adapt your use based on your needs. There is no one-size-fits-all solution to skin cleansing, so you have to be willing to spend some time getting to know the device and learning how your skin reacts to it.
How To Use The Foreo Luna
Step One: Gather everything you need and make sure your Foreo Luna is charged.
Step Two: Wet you skin with lukewarm water and then apply a normal amount of your favourite cleanser to your face.
Step Three: Turn on your Foreo Luna by clicking the main button; this will activate the cleansing mode. You can adjust the speed using the + and - buttons and the cleansing mode will remember your preference for next time. The timer is designed to allow 15 seconds for each section of the face, and the pulsations will pause momentarily to indicate when you should move on to the next area.
Step Four: Starting at your chin, work upwards towards your ear and back over your cheek to the centre of your face. Repeat on the other side of your face. Next, cleanse your forehead with gentle movements out from the centre. Finally, cleanse your nose by moving the device up and down either side of your nose. Some people also like to reduce the speed at this stage to cleanse the undereye area.
Step Five: Press the centre button again to put it in standby mode. Rinse your face to remove all traces of cleanser, and rinse your device under warm running water.
Step Six: Some people (myself included) like to dry their face at this stage and apply their chosen moisturiser. Others prefer to wait until after the very end to do this – it's up to you!
Step Seven: Click the centre button again to activate the anti-ageing mode. Using the back of the device with the soft ridges, spend one minute pressing the device to problem areas of your face where muscle tension can create wrinkles or increase the appearance of wrinkles. Forehead wrinkles, crows feet and smile lines can all be treated with this function.
Step Eight: Click the centre button again to turn the device off. Clean and rinse it again, dry it, and store in a dry place.
Care and Maintenance for the Foreo Luna
Your Foreo Luna device is one of the most hygenic skin cleansing devices on the market. The silicone surface is incredibly easy to clean, and with proper care your device should have a long and useful life.
Tips for keeping your Foreo Luna in tip-top shape
- Wash with warm water and soap after each use. Rinse with clean water and dry with a lint-free towel or cloth.
- Avoid clay-based cleaners, silicone-based or grainy cleansers or harsh abrasive cleansers, as they will erode the Foreo Luna's silicone touch points over time.
- Don't leave your device in direct sunlight.
- Don't clean your device with any harsh cleansers containing alcohol, petrol or acetone, as these will irritate your skin.
- We don't recommend sharing your device, as this may lead to an unnecessary build-up of bacteria.
