What are the Main Benefits of Dry Brushing?

  1. It helps remove dead skin cells and unclogs pores – leaving skin feeling softer and smoother.
  2. Massage is said to help boost circulation and stimulate your lymphatic system.
  3. Your moisturizer will work better because you will have brushed away the outermost dead skin cells.
  4. It helps scrub off old fake tan, so you can speed through the dreaded patchy stage.

How to dry body brush

  1. Start with the soles of your feet and legs.
  2. Brush upwards towards your heart in short, firm strokes.
  3. Don’t press too hard as the bristles might scratch your skin.
  4. Use circular motions on your tummy and armpits, instead of short, firm strokes.
  5. When you get to your arms, begin at your hands and work the brush upwards.
  6. Repeat every 1-2 days for best results.

Can you Body Brush in the shower?

You won’t get the full benefits of dry brushing if you do it in the shower. The hot water can dry out your skin and exfoliation won’t be as effective. Yes, it might be chilly for five minutes in your undies, but trust us, it’s worth it.

You’ll need a brush with firm, natural bristles like our Round Body Brush or Cactus Long Handle Brush, to slough away those dead skin cells.

How should you look after your Body Brush?

It’s not just your body that needs regular TLC, your body brush does too. After every dry brushing sesh, be sure to give it a quick rinse in the sink. You’ll also want to give your body brush a deeper clean with soap and water once a week and leave it somewhere suitable to dry. Clean brush, happy skin!
