Dry brushing is a popular spa technique that is now becoming extremely main stream and is an effective way to make your skin super smooth. When I heard about dry brushing I knew I had to try it and have now been doing it for a couple of weeks. I wanted to give you all the rundown of this new skincare treatment so you can all hop on board.
Most of you are probably wondering, how the heck does this work?! What it does is it stimulates the bodies lymphatic system and circulation. This technique can be used to help with bloating. By massaging the lymph nodes it allows the body to get rid of toxins and excess water. Not only does it help with achieving a smoother skin surface, it also helps with digestion and kidney function. Now lets get to the technique. I recommend dry brushing before getting in the shower. You can begin at your ankles and brush in an upward motion towards your heart center. Your skin may turn a little bit pink but it should not be painful.
I picked up my dry brush at Erewhon Natural Foods store but you can also pick this up at any natural food store. At the moment, I am loving dry brushing and am definitely noticing some subtle differences in the smoothness of my skin.
