Dry brushing is an ancient Ayurveda healing method for more energy, health and radiant skin. Face brushing works in the same way as body dry brushing.
Regular facial dry brushing
- stimulates blood circulation and lymph flow,
- effectively removes dead skin cells so that the skin underneath can breathe again,
- stimulates the production of new skin cells and leaves your skin fresh and radiant (bye-bye, grey veil!),
- refines your complexion and reduces small lines and wrinkles,
- reduces swelling,
- helps your skin to detoxify itself naturally,
- increases your skin’s absorption of skincare products, and
- leaves your skin radiant and glowing.
Immediately after face brushing, your skin is rosy, fresh and feels plumper; after several weeks, the appearance of small wrinkles is reduced and the complexion is refined.
The ruhi Facial Dry Brush exfoliates gently and effectively. Its bristle thickness is medium-soft and therefore ideal for sensitive facial skin.
Due to its special shape, it lies perfectly in your hand and effortlessly reaches all contours of your face.
Our face brush is made of 100% natural bristles and oiled, regional beech wood from responsibly managed forests, and does not have any plastic inserts. It is sustainably and traditionally crafted in Germany.
Dry brushing, also called gharsana, is an important part of the millennia-old Ayurveda healing teachings of India. The aim of dry brushing in Ayurveda is to move the lymph fluid towards the heart. This is intended to guide stored toxins and metabolic waste into the liver and kidneys and, ultimately, to drain them away.
Face brushing is based on the same methods as classic dry brushing. The lymph flow and blood circulation in the face are stimulated by the brush massage, old dead skin cells are removed and toxins are expelled. The skin is optimally supplied with oxygen again, and the production of new, healthy skin cells is stimulated. The grey veil disappears, and fresh, healthy and radiant skin appears.
