Dry Brushing – What is it?

Recently I stumbled across Dry Brushing.  I was checking out Food Babe’s Website and she was explaining her beauty routine and mentioned dry brushing.  I looked into further, doing my normal geeky thing, and read that people who dry brush claim that it can stimulate the lymph system, help the body rid itself of toxins and increase circulation or energy. The Scandinavians have been dry brushing for centuries. At the very least, I thought my skin could be healthier, and so I gave it a try.

I did some research and realized I would need a long handled brush to reach my back.  (The picture above is my actual brush.)  You can get one here for the body at Amazon. (Dry Brush) and one here for the face (Face Dry Brush)

After the first time, I could feel a difference on my skin. Now after a few weeks, I can see the difference.  My skin is much softer and smoother. I would even go so far to say it seems firmer.  Love it!

Dry Brushing Instructions

  • Use a natural bristle brush.
  • Skin must be dry.  I step into tub before I run the shower.
  • Start at the feet and brush in long circular movements up toward the heart.
  • Be gentle at first and eventually work up to a good brushing.
  • For your face, use small circular movements. You can also use this brush wet with your favorite cleanser.
  • After dry brushing, shower
  • If needed, moisturize after showering. I use my Suzy Homemaker Body Butter.
  • Wash your brush with sudsy water each week.

I would love to hear if you dry brush or if you think this is something you might try.
