The Benefits of Dry Skin Brushing
There are several benefits to dry skin brushing. One of the main benefits is, of course, the removal of dry skin from the body. Some other benefits include the reduction of cellulite and the ability to get circulation in your body moving at a pace that helps you produce new skin cells and keeps your blood circulating properly. It can also be relaxing and help if you are having a sensory overload or if you need a calming feeling to help you reduce the stress from your day. DSB is also a great way to help your body detoxify
The Method of Dry Skin Brushing
Dry skin brushing is a simple enough method. You use a non-synthetic or natural bristle brush on your body to remove dry skin.This brushing technique is done all over your body and with no lotion, soaps, or water. You simply brush the body gently making sure to get every part of your body and then take a shower afterwards.It is considered to be a more natural and milder form of exfoliation than using over the counter and chemical exfoliating methods that can actually cut or damage the skin.
The Tools of Dry Skin Brushing
The main tool of dry skin brushing is the brush itself. That's it. You can use a soft towel that is specifically for the days that you do dry skin brushing as well. This does help at the beginning when your skin is still very sensitive to the entire dry skin brushing process. The most important thing to keep in mind with dry skin brushing is the brush itself. You need to use something with natural bristles. Synthetic bristles can cause damage to your skin and may be too harsh.
I like to use a brush with a removable long handle. It's nice to be able to hold the brush in your hand, or add the handle for hard to reach places. Here's a link to the one I use.
