Introduction to Dry Brushing

As the age of innovation and peculiar practices is dawning, dry brushing is one of the methods that has been gaining popularity recently. Dry brushing has many benefits not just to your skin, but also to your health which is why people have been raving about adding this process to their skincare ritual.

We brush our teeth, our hair, and now our SKIN? What is happening and why do we need to do it?

Dry brushing is literally what it says, brushing the skin in a specific motion with a dry brush mostly before showering. Also, the technique is done starting from the feet and hands brushing towards the heart or chest.

Let’s dive-in into the benefits of dry brushing which will probably encourage you to do it!

Energy Enhancer

Dry brushing during the morning can give you a boost of energy because of its ability to help normalize the circulation of the blood flow.

Lymphatic Care

The lymphatic system is a key part of the immune system made of organs that ships lymph throughout the body. By brushing the skin regularly, it can help stimulate the normal lymph flow inside our body and through this, our body will detoxify itself naturally.

Clarifies Pores

Dry brushing is a great way to exfoliate our skin which clears our pores from oil, dirt, and other residues. It also removes the dead skin cells for a smoother and more refined skin.

For the face, use a smaller and brush with milder bristles for a gentler exfoliation.

How to do dry brushing?

1.) Start brushing at the bottom of your feet in a long and smooth stroke at least 10 times. Brush towards the chest/heart area for lymphatic support. Always brush towards the center of the body.

2.) For your arms, start with your palms and brush all through your arms towards the heart. Brush each section at least 10 times.

3.) Brush in circular clockwise motion on the stomach and armpits.

4.) The same process is done on the back and abdomen. For the face, use a more delicate brush.

Remember to always wash your brush to remove the dead skin cells and replace it every 6-12 months.

Do what works well for your body and if you are still skeptic about the benefits of dry brushing, well there’s no harm in trying! Experience it for yourself and witness the results of this technique.
