The Surprising Benefits Of Dry Brushing: What You Need To Know

Updated: Sep 21, 2023

Our skin is our largest organ and can reflect what is happening within us. Adding dry brushing to our regular self-care routine can help [along with nutrition] remedy many sensitive skin issues and improve the look and feel of your skin.

Why It Works

Our skin absorbs everything from tremendous amounts of toxins through food, the environment, and energy from people, places, and things we come in contact with. Yet we may not remove as much as we take in due to our lifestyle.

The simple practice of dry brushing can help by

  • exfoliating skin so healthier skin cells can regenerate faster

  • drain lymph nodes throughout the body

  • reduce body acne

  • improve blood circulation

  • Improve the appearance of cellulite

How To Dry Brush

Right before a shower

  • Start brushing from your feet up your legs using long brush strokes upwards towards your heart. Do this on all sides, including your bikini area. This will help with ingrown hairs and unclog lymph nodes

  • Brush your stomach area in a circular [clockwise] motion

  • Brush your breasts in circular strokes as well or towards your heart

  • Use the same long strokes on your arms, starting at the tips of your fingers

  • Brush your neck and shoulders toward your heart

  • Pay special attention to your underarms as this area gets clogged due to deodorant

  • Shower as usual

  • Add a light oil to replenish moisture

Try this a few times a week and enjoy the benefits as it awakens and revitalizes your skin.

By the way... self-care should not feel like a chore. If you like, add dry brushing to your self-care routine on days ruled by the Moon or Venus to add a nurturing and beautifying feel.

The better you feel inside and out radiates into your daily life.

Be well.
