Would you dry-brush your face?
With roots in traditional Ayurvedic medicine, dry brushing is lauded for its exfoliating, circulation-boosting, lymph-moving and toxin-flushing effects. Just like it sounds, a stiff-bristled brush is used to massage the skin while its dry, in turn stimulating the flow of just about everything beneath the surface. When done on areas such as the thighs and tush, this can translate to significantly smoother skin and less cellulite. But what about dry brushing your face?
Apparently this is a thing now, and Aveda now offers the Tulasara Radiant Facial Dry Brush. The key difference here is that this brush’s bristles are super-soft nylon that won’t scratch or irritate delicate facial skin, and the bristles are arranged with peaks that help ensure even exfoliation. The brush itself is shaped like an oval so it fits into all of the contours of the face—and comfortably in your hand. As with any sort of exfoliation, you can expect your skincare products to penetrate better without a layer of dead cells standing in their way, and the manual massage is sure to give you a healthy glow.
So, what say you? Are you down with dry-brushing your face?
