Dry brushing is one of the easiest ways to get the body you’ve always wanted. That’s why this technique has been a secret of skin care pros (and supermodels) for years. And you can actually use this professional spa technique in your own home, every day. All you need is a professional dry brush with natural boar bristles and you’re ready to get started! Read on to find out the benefits of dry brushing and how to dry brush at home.

A supermodel’s skin secret

Not only do estheticians love dry brushing, but celebrities do too! Cindy Crawford recently stated:

“I am a big fan of dry brushing. It exfoliates—you can see your
skin flying off everywhere. It’s great if it’s the winter and
you’re drier. They say it’s really good for circulation and
lymphatic drainage, too.” *

 

The Benefits of Dry Brushing

  1. EXFOLIATION

One of the biggest benefits of dry brushing your body is exfoliation. A body moisturizer alone isn’t always enough, especially in the colder months. Exfoliating is necessary to remove dead, dulling skin cells that accumulate on your body. A dry brush is the perfect professional tool because you can use it every day and see immediate results.

  1. DRY SKIN PREVENTION

Another benefit of dry brushing is that performing this simple method is preventative. If you know your skin gets dry and flakey easily in the winter, start dry brushing as soon as the weather starts to change and you can stop it before it starts.

  1. IMPROVE CIRCULATION

Dry brushing even increases the skin’s circulation, which jump-starts its renewal process, so skin looks healthier and feels smoother skin. Read about even more benefits of dry brushing here.

 

How to Dry Brush

Dry brushing is exceptionally easy! Want to learn the correct dry brushing technique? Watch this video or read below to learn how to use the same tool professionals rely on in the treatment room to perform full body exfoliation at-home:

 

 

Before you step into the shower, shed dry cells and renew texture by gently brushing your entire body from neck-to-toes. Brush in long, sweeping motions towards your heart. Brush several times in each area.

Tip: Never get the brush wet!  Keep it dry to ensure the bristles remain firm and effective.

Once you’re finished brushing your entire body, step into the shower and cleanse with the ultra-hydrating Comfortably Clean. Follow with Extremely Emollient Daily Body Creme immediately after stepping out of the shower.

That’s how easy dry brushing can be! If you want to know more about dry brushing and skin care in general, sign up for our email. If you have any questions, comment below.
