Glowy Skin with Dry Brushing

Have you heard of dry brushing?

Dry brushing it involves daily body massage with a dry, stiff-bristled brush. This helps detoxify by increasing blood circulation and promoting lymph flow/drainage. Dry brushing unclogs pores in the exfoliation process.

So, “how should I dry brush?” You always start on dry skin using a natural bristled brush.

It’s recommended that you start from the feet/ankles and work your way upward in long fluid strokes on limbs and circular motions on torso and back. It can be sensitive on the abdomen, breasts and neck, so lighten up pressure as needed.

A long handle is helpful so that you can get to the back, which can be brushed in downward strokes. A few overlapping swipes per area is enough. If you go over one area too long, you can actually break the integrity of the skin and cause irritation or bleeding. You generally do this once each day and shower immediately afterward.

The best time to dry brush is just before a shower. Then you can wash off any dead skin cells and flaky skin.

After you get out the shower, lock in that moisture with the Sunday Rituals Whipped Body Butter to maintain that glow to your skin.
