How to Dry Brush Your Face

Dry brushing your face offers you a low-cost and chemical-free way to exfoliate your skin. Exfoliation is a key component of facial beauty treatments, since it removes dead skin cells, facilitating the growth of new cells, preventing blackheads and giving you softer and more glowing skin. As with any exfoliation technique, you need to be very gentle to avoid skin damage.
