Dry brushing. Dry brush exfoliation. This process has been growing in popularity, but what IS dry brush exfoliation?
In short, dry brush exfoliation is a process or treatment in which a dry brush — no lotions, oils, or creams involved — is applied in circular or brushing motions to exfoliate skin and encourage circulation. The benefits of dry brushing extend beyond just exfoliation.
Benefits of Dry Brushing
- Exfoliation. There’s no other skin exfoliation process quite like dry brushing. It utilizes a special dry, soft brush to remove dead skin cells from the top layer of skin. Removing the dead skin makes skin softer, brighter, and healthier looking — almost instantly! Exfoliation also prepares the skin better for moisturizer afterward — the moisturizer doesn’t have to get through dead skin cells to reach the healthy, live skin.
- Improved circulation. Dry brushing uses calculated motions — circular, towards the heart — that help to improve the body’s circulation. Better circulation helps oxygen get to all the organs and extremities faster and easier — helping the body function better.
- Detoxing. The body has its own natural detox system — the lymph system. It’s great at doing its job, but anything you can do to help it along will help toxins leave your body sooner. The light massage from dry brushing helps to stimulate the lymph system and jump-start detox.
- Reduction in cellulite. The improved circulation and aid to the lymph system both mean you could see a reduction in cellulite after dry brushing.
