Have you ever heard of dry brushing? For many of us this term may be new or even strange but it has been one of the skincare secrets of many Hollywood celebrities. Most of us put all the effort into the skincare products specifically for our face but often neglect our bodies. Just like our face needs to be moisturised, exfoliated and massaged, the skin on bodies also need some love and care. Keep reading to find out what dry brushing is and how it can have a positive impact on your body.
Dry Brushing is a method where you brush your body before shower without any liquid or product. The brush is used in a circular motion towards the heart, so if you start with your feet, you need to move the brush in a circular motion upwards. Brushes made for this purpose have natural bristles that are easy on the skin.
benefits of dry brushing
You might be pleasantly surprised to find out that the simple act of dry brushing your body can have alot of benefits. Dry brushing facilitates the lymphatic system, stimulating it to ensure that toxins are released and circulation is improved. Dry brushing is a great way to exfoliate, the technique helps in removing dead skin cells and removes the ingrown hair. Another benefit that dry brushing has is that it reduces the appearance of cellulite which is a genetic condition and is hard to get rid of completely simply by dry brushing but fans of the technique claim that it reduces its appearance considerably.
Words of caution
Although dry brushing is quite popular and has many benefits, it should not be practiced by people with dry, sensitive skin or people who have skin conditions like eczema. The act of brushing will further dry out the skin and will flare up skin condition. Another important aspect of dry brushing is to always moisturiser the skin after.
