A fast and chemical-free way to exfoliate your skin, dry brushing isn't recommended for very sensitive skin, but other skin types can react better to it, especially over time.

Face Basics

If you're not sure you want to invest in an expensive electric face brush, try the classic one for dry skin brushing, with soft natural fibers. Get one that feels good in your hand, with a comfortable strap for your hand.

Dry skin brushing can facilitate the growth of new cells and even prevent blackheads when it's done correctly. Wash you face with a good cleanser and let it dry completely before reaching for the brush.

You should start with very gentle upwards movements on the neck and see how your skin reacts. You can use the dry brush for your chin and forehead with the same upward motions.

For the cheeks and nose, it's better to use clockwise and counter-clockwise circular motions. The T-zone is the area that may benefit the most from dry brushing and you should stay away from the very gentle skin under your eyes and your eyelids.

Electric Face Brush How to

Using an electric face brush is very similar to using an electric tooth brush and the entire process shouldn't last more than 1 minute. As with regular tools for dry face brushing, you should take it easy on your skin for the first couple of months as your face needs to adapt to the new beauty routine.

Most electric face brushes can be used by simply turning it on and applying light pressure on the skin. Cleansing the skin with an electric face brush means you should reduce any use of harsh cleaners and exfoliating scrubs.

Whether you use a classic face brush or an electrical tool, you should always follow it up with a good moisturizer. Stop if you feel any pain or notice redness in your skin and avoid dry brushing if you have any rashes, cuts or infections.

Dry skin brushing on the face is a gradual process to you can start with 30 second sessions and slowly move up to 2-3 minutes.
