I’ve always been intrigued by the benefits of dry brushing. It’s said to work wonders. After all, the skin is our largest (and most visible) organ, so it’s important to take good care of it. Dry brushing boosts circulation + lymphatic flow, helps minimize the appearance of cellulite, and sloughs off dead cells. It’s also been said to help eliminate toxins, which I’m all for. I’ve just started doing it and love the results. My skin looks and feels better… and is considerably smoother. The best way to do it is every morning, before you shower – with a natural brush (I bought and love this one from Elemis…) or a Japanese washcloth. Don’t get the brush wet – this is meant to be done dry! (Just be sure to wash your brush once a week using soap and water.)
PS – This is an older post… while I have you, here is an updated, more comprehensive post about dry brushing.
