You have probably heard about the very many benefits of dry brushing your body, but you may be surprised to know that employing this technique on your face has a lot of benefits too. Apart from reduced cellulite on the body, the benefits of dry brushing your face include increased blood circulation and toned skin to name a few.
Below, we have listed some of the benefits of regularly dry brushing your face to help you reveal your best skin…
- Thoroughly exfoliates your skin
- Preps your skin for skincare products
- Increases blood circulation
- Smoothens fine lines and wrinkles
- Reduces acne, blackheads and cellulite
Thoroughly exfoliates your skin
Dry brushing your face regularly exfoliates the skin and helps you get rid of dead dry skin cells. It also improves the overall appearance of your skin, clears clogged pores and allows your skin to breathe.
Preps your skin for skincare products
Dry brushing is a great way to prep your skin for the rest of your skincare products to follow. As the dead skin cells have been eliminated, the skincare products sink into the skin better and work their magic. Post dry brushing your face remember to use a serum, moisturiser, or sunscreen.
Increases blood circulation
The gentle brush strokes while dry brushing your face helps improve blood circulation in the area. This helps make your skin appear more youthful and supple.
Smoothens fine lines and wrinkles
Regular dry brushing has tremendous anti-ageing benefits too. It makes the skin smooth and plump by increasing blood circulation, thereby brightening your facial skin.
Reduces acne, blackheads and cellulite
Due to the excessive build-up of dead skin cells, dirt, oil and other impurities get trapped into your skin. This leads to blackheads and acne, making your skin look inflamed. Dry brushing your facial skin eliminates dead skin cells and is your answer for acne-free, clear skin.
- Please remember to use a special brush that is designed to be used on the face.
- A facial dry brush should ideally have softer and gentler bristles as compared to a dry brush meant for the body.
- If you have sensitive skin, eczema or any other skin condition, then it is best to give this technique a miss.
