When I first heard of dry brushing a few years ago I thought the procedure was a silly gimmick. I have since realized all the many benefits dry brushing has to the skin and body. It is a very simple and affordable way to detox and help stimulate the skin with loads of benefits.
One of the most remarkable benefits that I’ve personally noticed is how it treats the appearance of cellulite. The brushing stimulates the skin and brings nutrients and oxygen to the dermis. The brush helps to even fat distribution deposits in the skin so it doesn’t appear so lumpy. Circulation and oil-producing glands are stimulated and improve skin tone and reduces the need for body lotion.
The procedure to dry brush is very simple and actually feels very nice. Use a natural non-synthetic brush, the bristles should be stiff, but not hard. Use on dry skin with a dry brush and brush in long sweeps towards the heart. When dry brushing your stomach go counterclockwise to help release toxins and improve digestion. Your skin should look slightly flushed, but not red and irritated. Ideally you would do your entire body in the morning and again in the evening for best results. It is a super cheap way to get getting beautiful skin.
