As the name suggests, it means brushing your skin with a fluffy and soft-fiber brush without using any shower gel or even water. If your skin is too sensitive or dry then it is advisable to use body oil to protect the top layer of the epidermis and reduce the chances of irritation and redness.

1. Exfoliates

Dry brushing helps to exfoliate your skin by unclogging the pores and removing impurities from your skin layers, leaving the skin ultra-smooth and healthy looking.  

2. Improves complexion 

An accumulation of oil, dead skin cells, dirt and other impurities can leave skin feeling dehydrated and dull. With dry brushing, you can eliminate impurities, stimulate your nervous system and improve blood circulation, which leads to a healthy and glowing complexion. 

3. Improves lymph drainage

Dry brushing your dry skin encourages lymph drainage and improves blood flow without getting rid of your skin’s natural oil. 

4. Relaxes you 

Dry brushing improves blood flow, which delivers nutrients and fresh oxygen to your skin cells while getting rid of toxins in your body. Give your monthly spa appointments a miss and try dry brushing for healthy, glowing skin!

Wash your brush often

Just like your makeup sponge and brushes, a body brush also requires a good cleanse. Wash them off at least once a week with a help of shower gel and warm water to get rid of all the buildup. 

Use oils

If you want to avoid skin inflammation, invest in a nourishing skin oil. All you have to do is add essential oil to your palm, dilute it with a carrier oil like coconut or jojoba and glide it over the brush. Once the brush bristles are coated well, you can then begin the process.

How to use a dry brush?

Dry brushing is about following lymph flow, so start from your feet in a circular motion and gently upwards. Brush at least thrice before moving on to the other leg and once you are done, move up towards your stomach. Next, start brushing your arms and slowly shift towards your shoulders, chest and neck. Make it a point to avoid areas where your skin is too sensitive, or sunburnt as it can cause further damage.

Make sure you always brush before showering and be gentle with your strokes. Once done, apply a good moisturizing lotion. It’s very invigorating and will leave your skin feeling energised and fresh all day long.
