Dry Skin Brushing Benefits & How To.
Dry Skin Brushing is a wonderful technique to add into your daily selfcare routine. Our skin is our largest organ of elimination therefore it is important to pay it some much needed attention. Dry Skin Brushing helps increase circulation, bringing more blood flow to our skin, hair, and nails. It is good for overall skin health and helps support the lymphatic system. It can also help with acne and eczema.
HOW TO DRY BRUSH: The brush:
Find a natural bristle brush or loofah with a long handle. The bristles should be firm enough that you feel a gentle exfoliation sensation, but soft enough that you don’t leave scratches on your skin or feel any discomfort while brushing.
You can find a dry skin brush at most health stores and department stores.

Dry brushing is best done before a shower or bath
Make sure to only dry brush on dry skin
Apply gentle pressure with the brush and rub in small circles. Start from extremities and work towards your heart (feet to legs, hands to arms). Exfoliation is not the goal.
Make sure to avoid tender and sensitive areas including face, nipples, blemishes, rashes, wounds, etc.
