Skin-smoothing and instant-exfoliating magic. For those yet to experience dry brushing — the art of massaging your entire body with a bristled brush — it’s time to give your limbs some self-care for the new season.

An ancient tradition used for centuries, this skin-perfecting ritual has since been scientifically proven as the most effective cellulite treatment trialled (as conducted on BBC’s ‘The Truth About Looking Good’ - a 5-week experiment on women who body brushed daily, and saw an improved appearance of their skin and a 26% reduction in cellulite). We have been sharing our positive experiences about this detoxifying spa technique for many years through our treatments.  

Meet your secret to radiant summer skin: sourced from natural Agave Cactus, the specially designed, round-tipped bristles of our Revive Body Brush will make for your new favourite self-care tool, just like it is for Miranda Kerr.


How Is Dry Brushing Beneficial?

It encourages the renewal of healthy cells by sweeping away dead skin cells

Stimulates blood circulation and lymphatic drainage to flush out toxins

Clears and smooths your skin ready for better absorption of your body products 

Rejuvenates the nervous system, energises the whole body and leaves you feeling refreshed with softer, brighter skin


"You can use body brushing as a mindful moment to calm, centre and focus your thoughts", says Aromatherapy Associates Global Head of Education and Wellbeing, Christina Salcedas. "It normally takes me 2 minutes to do my entire body - 5 strokes in the same location then moving around the part of the body I am doing. Or at least until you can see some 'erythema', or redness due to increased blood flow. I use this special technique daily before bathing or showering".

When dry brushing, stroke in light upward motions following the blood flow towards the heart, paying extra attention to areas prone to any dryness and uneven texture. It is imperative you do this before showering, to open up your pores and get skin glowing.


Our Simple Guide

STEP ONE: On dry skin, starting from your toes, gently brush with short lifting strokes all the way up and around one leg, then the next.

STEP TWO: Continue to brush around your torso upwards towards your heart. Careful around sensitive areas, and focusing on the stomach and waist to get the circulation really going around those stubborn areas.

STEP THREE: Brush along and around each arm, again towards the heart, and finish across your shoulders.

STEP FOUR: Step into your shower using our Revive Shower Oil to cleanse, then finish by either massaging in Revive Body Oil to intensively nourish, or Revive Body Gel for a lighter formulation that will continue to refine the texture of your skin.

“Your Lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs that help the body get rid of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials which is exactly what you need when preparing for your perfect summer skin. Use our Revive Body Brush daily to stimulate this natural process and start seeing real results", says Christina. 


Don't wait — try out our effective and daily 2-minute pre-bath or shower routine, and enjoy amazing improvements in your skin texture and a revitalising uplift for the warmer months ahead.

Skin prep is key for me to achieve that summer body glow all year around. I like to begin by sweeping away dead skin cells with the Revive Body Brush before bathing. I find this helps with firming and toning my skin, so I love to do this ahead of a special event and particularly pre-tan! I then take my De-Stress Mind Bath & Shower Oil and apply a capful to my torso, shoulders and lower back before getting into my bath… I love the De-stress Mind blend as the sweet, yet herbal scent transports me to a state of calm before truly being able to unwind in the bath.


For me, bath time is the opportunity to take my ‘everything shower’ to the next level. I typically indulge in a bath for some down time ahead of a fun-filled weekend and to feel rejuvenated after a week of work. I apply the Revive Energising Exfoliator onto wet skin and massage this in for 2-4 minutes focusing on stubborn areas such as elbows, knees and shins.

Post Bathing Ritual

After soaking up the warm aromas of my bath I dry myself off with a towel and then get ready to apply the Revive
Body Oil
. My top tip is to ensure you apply body oil onto damp skin for ultimate hydration; I find this is crucial for locking in moisture and achieving a natural glow.

I typically opt for a bath over a shower when my skin is feeling particularly sensitive, or if I have some extra get-ready time in the morning. I begin my bath time ritual by creating a spa atmosphere with the Atomiser Connect. For me, it is key to ensure my set-up is a sanctuary, this really helps me to start my day off right. My top tip is to infuse your Atomiser with the Essential Oil Blend you gravitate towards, this way you can tailor your routine to meet your specific needs in that moment. Currently I keep diffusing the Revive Pure Essential Oil Blend as I love that the citrusy aroma leaves me feeling uplifted. Whilst I run my bath, I massage the Revive Morning Bath & Shower Oil into skin, which helps to improve circulation.


I like to begin my bath time by gently exfoliating my skin with the Rose Triple Exfoliator to even texture and remove dead skin cells. If you are looking for radiant skin, an exfoliant is a must have! My favourite thing about this exfoliant is that it does not leave my skin feeling stripped after use, which I have found with many I have tried in the past, but instead leaves my skin feeling nourished and soft with no irritation. I then apply the Rose Pink Clay Mask to my scalp and face to delicately remove oil build up and to rejuvenate both skin and hair.

Post Bathing Ritual

My post bath routine consists of locking in all moisture with a lightweight layer of the Revive Body Gel. As someone who is always on the go, this is a staple in my routine due to the fast absorbing, non-greasy texture of this product. In drier areas I love layering this with the Inner Strength Body Oil, due to its sweet yet spicy scent and skin nourishing properties.
