Dry brushing: the one thing to do for smooth and glowing skin

Have you ever wanted softer, firmer and brighter skin and improved cellulite? Then you should try this Dry Brushing technique!

The benefits of Dry Brushing

Dry Brushing is a technique that consists of exfoliating dry skin with a natural bristle brush to stimulate blood microcirculation and the lymphatic system and maintain the proper functioning of the immune system. Also, it has a great detoxifying effect (combats fluid retention) and will make you feel much better.

Brushing increases blood flow, causing only temporary inflammation that reduces the appearance of orange peel. Also, the illuminating effect on the skin that is achieved transiently reduces the typical shadows of skin with cellulite.

Dry brushing should be done daily

Which brush should you choose?

For the body, you should opt for a firm natural fiber brush with a long handle to reach the most complicated areas of the body, such as the back. You can start with a bamboo bristle brush, loofah, or horsehair glove.

How hard should the brush be?

For those who are starting with this type of treatment, try to choose a medium to a soft bristle brush.

How to dry brush?

You should start brushing your feet with short strokes and upwards, towards the heart. You must continue down the calves to the knee, then thighs. Then, keep through the buttocks, hips and abdomen, with circular movements to activate circulation in this area.

Try not to put pressure

Don't pressure your skin to avoid damaging the skin (it should never hurt) and don't brush over burns, wounds or other sensitive areas. It's normal for the skin to be a little red when finished, but if you notice it bright red or irritated, it means you went too far.

Dry brushing is a classic ayurvedic ritual that involves brushing your full body.

When to dry brush?

You have to perform this ritual every day in the morning before you do the shower or before training, since by perspiring you will get rid of the toxins mobilized by Dry Brushing more easily.

Use essential oils

After exfoliating, it's important to finalize the treatment with body oils, masks or a moisturizer on the rest of the body.
