Face Dry Brushing
What Does It Do?
Just like a body brush, a facial dry brush helps boost blood flow in your skin, which encourages cell rejuvenation and imparts an immediate “natural glow” to the face. Not only that, but the sweeping motions of my dry brushing routine work as a gentle lymphatic massage, helping to drain excess fluid from the usually sluggish lymphatic system, which reduces puffiness around the face and helps to decongest the skin.
Along with the internal benefits, the soft bristles provide a light physical exfoliation, helping eliminate any flakiness or uneven texture, which is ideal because skin can feel rough when it’s dehydrated.
Regular use of the facial dry brush, leaves your skin feeling firmer, fresher and brighter and helps to jump start your daily skin care routine.
How Do You Use It?
I use my dry brush in the morning before applying any skin care products. Always on dry skin, I start by gently buffing the brush against the outer perimeters of my face, along my jawline and down my neck, and then sweep it in short strokes upwards along my forehead and cheeks, as well as in light figure-eight motions around my eyes and softer strokes over any fine lines (particularly on my forehead and laugh lines).
The whole process is simultaneously relaxing and invigorating, which feels like the perfect way to start the day. After I’ve completed my brushing routine, I feel more alert, my skin looks brighter and I’m much less puffy, particularly around my eyes and jawline.
I’ll usually follow up with a Fresh Tea Face mist before applying the rest of my morning skin care products and SPF.

- To ensure your dry brush always provides you with the best results, never use it wet or on skin that is damp with any oils or moisturizers.
- Keep it clean by sprinkling the bristles with cornstarch or clay (no soap or water).
- Avoid using it on skin that is broken out or irritated. If you are experiencing an active breakout, try a gentle facial massage with clean hands or a jade roller instead.
