My Guide To Dry Body Brushing

I started dry body brushing about a year ago. I’d heard so much about the multiple benefits and thought I’d give it a go. Wow, for me it makes a huge difference. 

Firstly, what type of brush? 

The brush needs to be made of natural bristles that are short and tightly compacted together. It needs need to be of a size that is compact and easy and comfortable to handle. If it’s not you won’t use it! 

There are some pricy ones on the market but they don’t have to be. I got mine from the Botanics range in Boots for about £10.

So what do you do? 

Brushing should be done in long sweeping movements towards your heart.  I.e. Up your legs sweeping from bottom to top. At first it’s quite a strange sensation. It doesn’t exactly hurt, but you can definitely feel it. 

The benefits?

There are lots …

  • Dry brushing is promoted as a preventative for dry skin and a way to exfoliate the skin, thus stimulating skin renewal that is super soft to the touch
  • It improves circulation, especially important in the winter months. 
  • Reduces the signs of cellulite.. making those dimples become invisible…. yay 
  • Finnish Dr Paavo Airola maintains that dry brushing is an essential part of any intestinal cleansing and healing program.

An important point to remember…

Avoid sensitive areas and anywhere the skin is broken such as areas of skin rash, wounds, cuts, and infections.
