Here’s How It Works
If you are curious about dry brushing or dubious of the hype – a luminous, full-body radiance and awake energy for instance – I can assure you that its soothing effects on the skin, evening out the complexion and uplifting impact on moods are real.
These results will totally transform your perspective! Personally, I am obsessed with it; every morning before work, I use this luxurious marble-made brush to make me feel more grounded.
As soon as I awaken, I spring out of bed to dry brush and lavish my skin with a floral toner paired with two essential exfoliators. This allows me to reboot both mentally and physically before the hectic day commences. It’s an invaluable ritual that helps me replenish myself when life gets too overwhelming.
6:25 a.m.: Jumping out of bed, I start my day off with a glass of hydrating water and a cup of coffee. Then, I share an intimate moment with my husband, discussing our plans for the day; this helps me feel emotionally connected to him.
7:30 a.m.: Taking a spin around my neighborhood to get those positive vibes flowing is one of the best ways for me to stay in shape. As the vibrant green foliage and stunning flowers adorning Atlanta emerge in the spring, I’m determined to take advantage by biking three mornings out of every week. On days that I don’t have time for an outdoor ride, indulging in MIRROR classes provides an excellent alternative!
8:45 a.m.:I return home, and before washing off the day’s grime, I dry brush. The feeling is second to none—it feels like having your back scratched with an even better sensation! With slow, methodical strokes towards my heart, I start from my feet, up my legs and hips, then down the front and back of them before moving on and brushing upwards along both arms all the way to my shoulders, followed by across my décolleté, and finally down to where it all started at my abdomen.
I don’t linger in any single area for too long and apply harder pressure to certain body parts like the elbows, knees, feet, and ankles, as those areas have thicker skin. We are used to showing special attention to our face’s skin, but taking care of ourselves through body brushing is something that should be done solely for ourselves!
8:55 a.m.: I’m a fan of the occasional morning bath because it’s such an indulgent way to start my day slowly. I only treat myself to one when I need some clarity on something, and then I use Argan Oil Creamy Cleanser for washing my face—it feels like being in a spa!
Several times a week, I indulge in more rigorous exfoliation with the Acai Pulp Facial Scrub. Not only does its texture feel amazing, but just a small amount of micro exfoliating is enough to cover my entire face! It’s no wonder why this product has been so popular—it really does work wonders on your skin.
9:05 a.m.: As I am eagerly patting my skin dry after the shower, I can hardly wait to experience this miracle-working Hydrating Toner. Every morning and night, it has been a must for me in order to keep my complexion hydrated and balanced.
Not only does it refresh, but it also retexturizes with its moisturizing formula! Plus, since revealing its benefits into my beauty routine – I have never looked back; My skin is next level without fail if ever this heavenly skincare step is skipped—due to its luxurious combination of natural ingredients that do wonders on your face!
Each night, I indulge in a luxurious massage with my face cream. Its deep hydration and nourishing properties leave me feeling beautiful and refreshed before bedtime.
9:10 a.m.: To center and focus on myself, I take time to apply body oil or balm. Whether you prefer a thick consistency for the winter months or select formulas based on what you are wearing, there is an abundance of options to choose from that can cater specifically to your needs. However, please be cognizant—some materials may not react well with certain oils right after application!
9: 15 a.m.: Despite being a fan of minimalism, I’m actually quite the glamour girl at heart. Whenever I walk out of my house, I make sure to put on some pink lipstick – it’s like an armor for me that allows me to feel ready and confident about whatever comes my way.
Before applying any lip color, though, I have this organic lip balm, which makes my lips so soft and smooth; its texture is simply divine!
I apply a natural foundation to give my skin a smooth finish, and then add some subtle eyeliner for definition. A light dusting of orange or pink blush gives me a soft glow while spritzing face mist sets the look with a refreshingly dewy finish.
