Dry Brushing for Skin

This practice has been gaining popularity lately and with good reason. I’ve even noticed “dry brushing” as an offering on the
menu at spas in hotels I stayed at recently. Dry Brushing has many potential benefits from smoother skin to helping with
lymphatic drainage.

So what is it and why should you consider doing it?

Dry brushing is exactly what it sounds like… brushing the skin in a particular pattern with a dry brush, usually before
showering.In dry brushing, the skin is typically brushed toward the heart, starting at the feet and hands and brushing toward
the chest.

Benefits of Dry Brushing

I’ve been dry brushing my skin for years, mostly because it feels great and makes my skin softer, but there are other benefits
as well:

1. Lymphatic Support:

The lymphatic system is a major part of the body’s immune system. It is made up of organs and lymph nodes, ducts and
vessels that transport lymph throughout the body. Many of these lymph vessels run just below the skin and proponents of
dry brushing claim that brushing the skin regularly helps stimulate the normal lymph flow within the body and help the
body detoxify itself naturally.

2. Exfoliation

This benefit is often noticed the first time a person dry brushes. The process of running a firm, natural bristled brush
over the skin helps loosen and remove dead skin cells, naturally exfoliating skin. I noticed much softer skin in the first
few days and weeks after I started dry brushing and my skin has stayed soft. Dry brushing is one of the simplest and most
natural ways to exfoliate skin. I love this benefit of skin brushing and how soft my skin feels when I do this regularly!

3. Clean Pores (& Smaller Pores!)

The added benefit of exfoliating the skin, is clearing oil, dirt and residue from the pores. Using a specialized smaller
gentler dry brush for the face, I notice that my face is softer and my pores are much less noticeable.

4. Cellulite Help

Though the evidence is anecdotal, I’ve found many accounts of people who claimed that regular dry brushing greatly helped
their cellulite. I talked about this and my other cellulite remedies here. There isn’t much research to back the cellulite
claims, but dry brushing feels great and makes skin softer, so there isn’t really any downside to trying it!
5. Natural Energy Boost

I can’t explain why but dry brushing always gives me a natural energy boost. For this reason, I wouldn’t recommend dry
brushing at night but it is great in the morning. One theory is that because it increases circulation, it also increases
energy. Either way, dry brushing is part of my morning routine.
