Dry body brushing is actually rooted in Ayurvedic medicine but many cultures, including ancient Greeks and Japanese, have used skin brushing to cleanse and beautify the skin. It's a simple ritual which can be added to your daily routine and actually give you similar stimulation that a 15 minute walk can give.

 

Here are four benefits of incorporating dry brushing into your skincare routine:

1. Exfoliation


The bristles of the brush whisk away dry skin – to leave your skin softer and smoother. Follow up your dry brush routine with Lavender essential oil and almond carrier oil to soothe and hydrate skin.

Cellulite


Many users have reported a decrease in cellulite after dry brushing regularly, though this is not supported by science – to us it seems like an all-natural risk-free solution to try! Many relate dry brushing tomassages, which have been scientifically proven to reduce cellulite.

 

Post dry brushing, enjoy an almond carrier oil and grapefruit essential oil mix for the ultimate defence against cellulite.

Increase circulation - invigorate and energise!


A lot of dry body brush users agree that it does invigorate and energise. It could be stimulating your nervous system, the attention to self-care or getting the blood flowing in your body.

Detoxification


The swift movement of the brushincreases blood flow, in turn promoting lymph flow and drainage.

How to use


You can use your dry body brush, as it mentions in the name, dry. Or you can actually soften the exfoliation by using it wet, with your body wash, in the shower.

 

Simply use one motion with the brush over the skin and smooth with your other hand over the same area. The following smoothing action with your other hand helps to smooth the area and calm the skin after stimulation.

Now you know how to use your dry body brush and all of the incredible benefits, you can go dry brush your way to soft supple skin and enjoy the benefits from an ancient beauty ritual.
