THE SECRET TO GLOWING SKIN – DRY BRUSHING

We were beyond excited when we heard that Province Apothecary had created a facial dry brush, everything they do is top notch, so we knew it would be good, and it has proven to fill a gap in our skincare and self-care routine that we didn’t even know existed.

Dry brushing is such a treat, it is part of a daily skin-care ritual that helps to create radiant skin while improving your overall health.  While you’ve probably heard of dry brushing your body you may not have heard of dry brushing your face.

Dry brushing your face has the same benefits as dry brushing your body and if you’re not dry brushing your body you should absolutely be doing that!

Daily dry brushing will improve your skin and it will also help improve your overall health.

BENEFITS OF DRY BRUSHING:

  • Smooths fine lines and brightens appearance
  • Reduces puffiness and dark circles
  • Detoxifies to help clear congestion
  • Tones + firms skin
  • Gently exfoliates and stimulates cellular turnover
  • Stimulates your Lymphatic System

We can’t stress the importance of your lymphatic system and keeping it healthy.  Your lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs that helps your body eliminate toxins and transports white blood cell rich fluid throughout your body.

The healthier your lymphatic system is the healthier you will be.

Dry brushing in the morning is a great way to wake up and stimulate your lymphatic system and get glowing skin, it is simple and takes 2 minutes.

Below is a video from Providence apothecary founder Julie Clark demonstrating how quick, easy and effective daily dry brushing is. We highly suggest Province Apothecary’s Facial Dry Brush. It was created specifically to dry brush the sensitive skin of the face without irritation.

It is so easy to forget to dry brush, especially when we jump out of bed and immediately start running through our to-do list for the day.  We set our dry brushes out on our bathroom counter every night so we are reminded to dry brush first thing in the morning.

It is a great time to relax and have a few inward moments of calm and set our intentions for the day, which work wonders for our overall well being, too.
