What You Need to Know about Facial Dry Brushing

A new way to naturally exfoliate. Facial dry brushing is a new trend in taking care of your face that has some people raising their eyebrows or even rolling their eyes. The benefits are noticeable, and it’s a step that shouldn’t be missed in your beauty regime.

Here’s WHY you should use a facial dry brush

  1. The delicate skin on your face and around the eyes naturally builds up residue from the environment, makeup, skincare products, and excess oil.
  2. Depending on the season, dead skin can build up fast and block your face from absorbing any anti-aging serum or moisturizer.
  3. Dead skin can also create a rough surface that will leave your makeup looking unpolished and uneven. Not a good look for anyone.
  4. By dry brushing you are gingerly removing the dead skin and shrinking the visibility of unsightly pores. The results? Glowing and silky smooth skin. And let’s face it, who doesn’t want that?!

Here’s HOW you should dry brush your face

Begin by properly washing your face with Seed Phytonutrients Facial Cleanser. We love this cleanser for its calming and soothing effect, gently removing dirt and oil from the face with seaweed and sunflower oil. It is important to always dry brush a clean face to avoid any contamination of bristles, which spreads germs and residue.

Hold the brush on one side of your chin and begin to massage the face in an upward circular motion to your hairline. Then repeat the process on the other side. The goal is not to scrub off a layer of the skin—you should not look like a lobster—rather your skin should feel tingly from the increase of blood flow and circulation.

Avoid brushing your face more than two times weekly. Any more brushing would be ineffective and could cause damage. Follow up this step with the Seed face serum, and then the moisturizer.

Pro tip! Always apply your face products in an upward motion to avoid undo stress on the skin that can result in wrinkles over time. Apply a thin layer of serum all over the face followed by a layer of moisturizer. The combination of the two will yield the best results by keeping your skin hydrated, protected, and looking radiant!
