Benefits of Dry Skin Brushing

I use my skin brush before showering. I start on the soles of my feet moving in long sweeping motions toward my heart. You always brush toward your heart. I brush several times in each area overlapping as I go. Take care as you bush over more sensitive areas. Your skin will become less sensitive the more you dry brush. Once I have dry brushed my entire body, I hop in the shower. I like to alternate between the hot temperature I can tolerate and cold temperature I can tolerate. This stimulates blood circulation bringing more blood to the tops layers of the skin. Dry skin brushing should be done daily for best results. Avoid brushing your face (unless you have a special brush designed for this delicate skin). Clean the brush meticulously after every brushing session.

  1. Dry skin brushing helps the body to shed dead skin cells, which helps to improve skin texture and cell removal
  2. Skin brushing encourages the body’s discharge of metabolic wastes, which greatly aids the lymphatic drainage of the entire body making dry skin brushing a powerful detoxification aid
  3. Brushing also helps tighten the skin because it increases the flow of blood. Increasing the circulation to the skin can also help lessen the appearance of cellulite
  4. Skin brushing may help with muscle tone, and a more even distribution of fat deposits
  5. Because of direct liver function improvement, skin brushing aids the nervous system by resetting the connection to the skin via the liver
  6. Dry skin brushing can be invigorating. Many people become “addicted” to dry skin brushing (in a good way) because it simply feels so good
  7. The act of dry brushing has been described as meditative and may reduce muscle tension, calm your mind, and relieve stress
