Benefits of Dry Brushing

Dry brushing is an ancient practice that involves using a dry brush with natural bristles to exfoliate the skin and stimulate blood circulation. Many people believe it offers several health benefits. Let’s explore these benefits:


Dry brushing is thought to help release toxins through sweat. The coarse bristles of the brush stimulate the pores, making it easier for the body to sweat and reduce the flow of toxins through the lymphatic system.


Dry brushing effectively removes dry, dead skin cells from the surface. By brushing away these cells, your skin becomes smoother and softer. The process also helps unclog pores, allowing your skin to breathe and absorb moisturizers more effectively.


Similar to a massage, dry brushing can induce a sense of relaxation. The gentle strokes across your skin can promote a calming effect.

Skin Preparation:

Dry brushing prepares your skin for better absorption of moisturizers. By removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells, your lotions and creams penetrate more effectively.

  • Start with the soles of your feet and legs.
  • Brush upwards towards your heart in short, firm strokes.
  • Don’t press too hard as the bristles might scratch your skin.
  • Use circular motions on your tummy and armpits, instead of short, firm strokes.
  • When you get to your arms, begin at your hands and work the brush upwards.
  • Repeat weekly for best results.
