Skincare Trends: Facial Dry Brushing

Dry Brushing should be the first step in your morning bath ritual, both facial and body dry brushing. Dry brushing is a technique from ancient Ayurveda, called gharsana, that gently lifts dry, dull skin cells from your skin's surface. It exfoliates to promote skin cell turnover, and preps your skin to take in nourishing oils, treatments and hydration that follow.

Dry body brushing has long been championed for helping to gently exfoliate skin, boost circulation and reduce the appearance of cellulite. But face brushing in the next big rave! This technique is used to improve the tone and texture of your face. The softer bristle brush (compared to the one for the body) used in a circular motion around the face gives an incredible, fresh-faced glow. In Asia, they follow with facial soap rather than cleanser, so I wouldn’t be surprised if the traditional facial soap bar makes a comeback soon. 

To use: Deploy in a circular motion around the face focusing on exfoliating the cheeks, forehead and chin which results in smooth, soft and radiant skin.
