Do you dry brush in the shower? It’s a bit of an effort, but the results are so worth it. Normally the face is avoided during this cleanse, probably because using the same brush would be absolutely gross! But now, facial dry-brushing is the new skincare must-do – and we’re going to tell you why.
The technique of dry-brushing is taken from the ancient Ayurvedic practice of dry massaging, it essentially refreshes and stimulates the skin, enhancing blood circulation and the release of accumulated toxins.
A product on the market set to take on the Ayurvedic practice of dry massaging is the tulasāra Radiant Facial Dry Brush from luxury cosmetics company Aveda. In fact, it’s going to entirely change your morning cleansing ritual.
The product is really easy to use, and fits nicely in the hand. The ultra-soft bristles are kind on skin and formed in rounded massaging peaks, which allow the dull cells to be swept away for instant exfoliation.
For those of you Janes that hate the feel of gritty exfoliator gloves (don’t we all?!) the Aveda radiant facial brush is the perfect replacement.
Aveda’s pro-tip is to “use the brush on clean skin and always start at the centre of the decollete and move in gentle, circular motions anti clockwise, gradually working up the next and onto the face, gently sweeping away dull skin cells. One side at a time, sweep across the eye area from the inner to outer corners, before sweeping the brush in downward motions from the sides of the face to the collarbone to help encourage lymph drainage.”
If you fancy giving the Aveda brush a try, it costs £27 and is available to buy from the Aveda website.
