Dry brushing is gaining a lot of popularity, and we often get asked how to dry brush. Dry brushing is even apart of many spa services, so before you try it let’s try to break it down for you.
Dry brushing is what it sounds like, brushing the skin in a particular pattern with a dry brush, usually before showering. With dry brushing, the skin is typically brushed toward the heart, starting at the feet or hands and brushing toward the chest. Soft pressure and a brush with the right bristles can be an excellent way to start the day and have your skin looking great.
We recommend that you only dry brush a few time a week. Brushing too frequently or vigorously—or using a brush with tough bristles—could cause “micro-cuts,” which are not good for any healthy skin regime.
