What is dry brushing?
Dry brushing is the practice of using a thickly bristled natural brush to groom the skin on your entire body.
When do you practice dry brushing?
It’s best to perform dry brushing right before a shower or bath, with completely dry skin.
What are the benefits?
It is thought to exfoliate and smooth the skin, plus increase circulation, detoxify and encourage lymphatic drainage.
How often should you practice dry brushing?
It depends on the sensitivity of your skin, but generally no more than once or twice a week.
Any tips or tricks?
Begin brushing your body from the feet and move upward, using small circular motions. And avoid your face since it’s more sensitive than the rest of the body.
