I have been a fan of body brushing since my start in T-Tapp. I truly credit brushing, salt masks, and the alfalfa for not having loose, hanging skin!
This week I want to feature a relatively new product, the Bass Face Brush. I just got one this last winter. I started using it right away. I will say that I was a bit worried to use it under my eyes–having had acne as a teen back in the dark ages when they did everything possible to suck all the oil out of your skin (all kinds of nasty topical stuff, plus tetracycline! :p ), the skin under my eyes really suffered from all that “treatment”.
I very gingerly brushed under my eyes and decided if it seemed worse or no better in two weeks, I would stop. Imagine my delight and surprise to see it was improving! I now brush one to two times daily. I see improvements not only in the skin elasticity, but also in my skin tone. I am naturally pale and I feel the brushing is helping my complexion–which makes sense! After all, brushing is good for circulation! 🙂
I also brush the backs of my hands from time to time throughout the day with the face brush. I remember Teresa talking of an actress (whose name escapes me–I’m not good on keeping up!) who kept a brush in her purse and whipped it out to brush her face and hands when she had to wait around–and Teresa said she has amazing skin!
I don’t want to be obsessed with trying to look younger, but I do want to take care of myself and not age before my time! I love face brushing because it is so quick, easy to do, and yields results without a huge time or money investment.
The brush has a nice wood handle and natural bristles. If you have the T-Tapp body brush, the bristles are softer yet firm enough to help exfoliate the skin.
Here is a post on the forums with directions on how to use the face brush.

Happy brushing–make your skin happy! 😉
