Dry brushing is the juice cleanse of the beauty world. A regular dry scrub using a brush over the thighs and bum offers remarkable results, and takes only minutes to do. Win. Win. Oh and did we mention the benefits? Think Unclogging pores, helping your body metabolise toxins, discouraging fluid retention and cellulite. All this could be yours my friends.
As we grow older, our skin becomes less efficient at shedding layers of dead skin cells but dry body brushing is fantastic at exfoliating these dead skin cells away. Regular exfoliation primes your skin to absorb the ingredients from body creams and serums much more effectively, which means you get a lot more bang for your buck in the long-run. You like?
So what’s the best way to do it? It’s best before hopping into the bath or shower, the process only takes a couple of minutes. And - in case you've skipped straight down to this bit - your skin must be DRY.
Start at the feet in the direction of your heart then continue working over the entire body, applying a good pressure to the brush as you stroke upwards to really aid that important circulation process. ‘Quick flicks’ rather than long slow, strokes are key. As well as your limbs, don’t forget the torso and legs too. Adieu orange peel pins.
Choosing the right brush is an important aspect- we recommend a non animal derived bristle head such as our DETHRONE! Stimulating brush with its large circular top and long handle for top to toe motion. Its firm (non skin tearing) bristles give your skin a thorough exfoliation while the pressure helps to stimulate your circulation and help the body eliminate toxins. So there you have it, your new morning ritual: Brush your hair, brush your bod.
