Dry brushing has many benefits for the body as well as the mind. It is an easy way to give yourself a rejuvenating self-massage and is the ideal first step in any bath or shower ritual. Some of the many benefits of dry brushing include increased circulation, detoxification, cellulite reduction, lymphatic stimulation, and exfoliation of the skin. In addition, dry brushing preps the body to absorb the benefits of bath and body products. Dry brushing is perhaps the best way to achieve smooth, soft skin as it removes old layers easily and effectively without the irritation that sometimes occurs with abrasive sugar and salt scrubs.
Dry brushing should always be done before taking a shower or bath, as you will want to wash off the skin cells that are released during the brushing process. Always start at the feet and brush the skin in a large circular sweeping motion, making your way towards the heart. Make sure to include your back, hands, arms, underarms and shoulders. Use as much pressure as desired.
