Jute Dry Face Brush
Finally a plant bristle brush especially designed for Dry Brushing the face. Achieve soft glowing skin on your face every day by dry brushing with this beautifully soft plant bristle brush, made of Jute bristle, especially designed for delicate skin.
Jodie, owner of Bodecare says, "It will gently exfoliate dead surface skin, stimulate circulation in your face and draining away any congestion around the eyes, nose and neck, leaving your skin looking smooth and vibrant.
If you are not used to exfoliating the skin on your face, you may want to start with dry brushing the face 1-2 times per week and build up as your skin gets use to it. Please note, even though this is a soft bristle brush it exfoliates really well, you must use a hydration mask or organic oil on your skin at least 2 times per week and a good quality daily moisturiser so that your skin stays looking it's best and doesn't dry out.
This brush exfoliates more effectively than a facial scrub and will last you a life time. It has taken me 6 years to find a plant bristle that is perfect for the skin on the face and décolletage and I have finally found it and I absolutely love this brush. It is a must have with your dry body brushing regime."

Non-Toxic Dry Body Brushes
If you are trying to rid your body of toxins don’t risk using a body brush that is covered in chemicals. You deserve the best quality!
Brush Care - As the timber in the new brushes are in their natural state is it important to note that special care is needed to maintain the brush.
• When washing the brush with a tea tree soap, try to keep the water on just the bristles and then pad the bristles into a towel to remove as much excess water as possible. This will speed up drying time and reduce any chance of the brush developing mildew.
• Once you have padded the bristles with a towel, leave to hang in a well ventilated area or lay with bristles facing down so it can dry naturally and the water can run away from the brush head.
• It is recommended to spray the brush with a Tea Tree spray after each body brush to kill any bacteria which will prolong the life of the brush.
• Ensure the entire brush head is dry before using again, any water residue left in the brush will cause mildew.
• Because the timber is natural and has not been treated with chemicals, plastics or lacquer the timber may crack if it gets really wet, which is why we suggest to wash just the bristles. If any cracks occur this will not affect the quality of the brush.
Frequently Asked Questions
1. How do you recommend cleaning the brush and how often?
It’s important to clean your dry skin brush regularly.
Wash in hot soapy water with a Tea Tree Oil Soap and leave in the sun to dry or a well ventilated area, with bristles facing down.
Always wash your brush bristles when you first buy it, before use.
Cleaning schedule guide:
If you brush daily, clean your brush once a week
If you brush every 2-3 days, clean your brush once a fortnight
2. Why work from the left to right of the body?
Working from left to right / clockwise motion, is generally favoured for massage as it releases tension, helps strengthen and enrich the body.
Anticlockwise motion ‘stirs up’ energy in the body. It is usually followed by clockwise massage. Line strokes up, against the direction of hair growth are to assist with circulation.
3. Why brush on dry skin?
This results in optimum exfoliation of skin and stimulating the circulation and lymphatic system. If the bristles are wet, they will be too soft to function in the same way as they do dry.
4. How often can you body brush?
Brushing once a day, just before a shower or bath is perfect. Morning, noon or night it doesn’t matter, just when it fits in with your schedule. The ultimate is body brushing in an open space with fresh air, combined with deep breathing.
5. What are toxins? How does dry body brushing help to reduce toxins in your body via our circulatory system?
Toxins can be made by normal activities like breathing or exercise which can produce wastes like carbon dioxide, lactic acid and glycolic acid or from medication, food, pollution and many other influences.
Toxins are stored in places like: the mucus membrane in the respiratory system; as cholesterol in artery walls; stones in kidneys and bladder; crystals around joints.
Regular body brushing assists the body in normal removal of metabolic wastes. The skin is the largest organ of the body and is sometimes called the “third kidney” due to its role in the elimination of waste from the body. The lymph is a transit system which travels via vessels much like the blood. The lymph system transports food and oxygen from the blood to the cells and the cells then return the waste back through the lymph system to the blood.
Dry brushing helps improve the movement of lymph, so that are cells receive the food and oxygen at a better rate and the cells excrete waste back to the blood at a better rate. So to with our Circulation, underlying the skin is vast network of capillaries called the circulatory system.
Dry brushing stimulates the connective tissue attached to the capillaries to improve circulation travelling to the heart.
6. Does dry body brushing make my skin glow?
Yes regular body brushing will make your skin glow because it is assisting the body in a number of functions like:
7. Why is a natural bristle better than a synthetic bristle for dry brushing?
Pure natural bristle, especially plant bristle has tiny hooks and imperfections which gather the dead skin while sweeping over the body, leaving the skin with that healthy glow.
Whereas nylon, synthetic bristle or gloves are smooth and do not offer any health benefits or the same type of exfoliation.
The tiny hooks and imperfections of the plant bristle are so good at picking up debris that I have a client who successfully removed head lice with the Japanese Body Brush.
