Dry brushing took the wellness world by storm in 2018 with all manner of celebrities, from Gwyneth Paltrow to Miranda Kerr singing it’s cellulite busting benefits.

But it turns out you don’t have to keep the circulation boosting beauty treatment to below the neck .You can dry brush your face for a smoother more glowing complexion too.

What is dry brushing?

Dry brushing is exactly what it sounds like. It’s the process of brushing your dry skin. But before you grab your hairbrush from the nightstand and start scratching away at your thighs, there’s a little more to it than that. 

To do this popular spa treatment at home you’ll need a special brush with short natural bristles like the ‘Zen Me Vitality Brush’.

Using gentle circular and sweeping motions on areas like the legs, thighs and stomach you can exfoliate the body and kickstart the lymphatic system in the same way as when you get a massage.

It’s even said to help smooth out the appearance of cellulite as well. 

What are the benefits of dry brushing your face?

Facial cellulite isn’t a very common concern so there must be other reasons you’d want to dry brush your face. The fact of the matter is, dry brushing is a great way to exfoliate and get rid of dry flaky skin. You skin will get a post-brush glow because of the increased blood flow. It’ll also prep your skin to better absorb your Lumity Facial Oil too. 

How to dry brush your face

You’ll want to be even more gentle and be sure to use a smaller, softer brush than the one you use for your body. 

Use light upward strokes on your skin and just as you do on your body always brush away from the heart to encourage circulation. You can go over every inch of your face, neck and chest too. 

Add dry brushing to your beauty regime

Dry brushing takes just a few minutes and can easily be added to your daily beauty regime. After waking up and taking your Lumity Day Supplement, hop in the shower.  But before turning on the water spend a few minutes dry brushing your body. 

After you’ve showered and dried off gently dry brush your face. Follow it up with a facial massage using Lumity Facial Oil and top it off with your favourite moisturiser.
