Beauty Rituals: Dry Brushing + Benefits

Thursday, August 21, 2014

Lately, I've been obsessed with dry brushing. I had heard about it for years but just recently gave it a try. It is such a simple and easy process that has wonderful results. All you need is a body brush with natural bristles (preferably with a long handle) like this one from The Body Shop. You just brush it across your skin all over your body once a day starting at the feet and moving up (always using strokes towards your heart). Typically you do this before your shower or bath and that's it!


The Amazing Benefits:


  • Gently exfoliates your skin
  • Increases circulation
  • Stimulates your lymphatic system
  • Helps reduce cellulite 
  • Improves digestion and kidney function
  • Stress relief 
  • Helps with muscle tone
  • Helps skin absorb nutrients better

Do you dry brush? What is your favorite benefit?
