In my quest to bring you more eco and organic products, I recently discovered dry brushing and I was amazed at its health benefits. My body is glowing, too, which is rare for me in winter. As always, we only stock products we love and use ourselves, so we've got some Bamboo Dry Brushes available in the shop now and they're perfect for sustainable Christmas presents or stocking fillers.
So what is dry brushing?
Dry brushing is basically massaging your body with a dry, stiff-bristled brush. It helps flaky skin, increases circulation, detoxifies, helps digestion and improves the appearance of cellulite.
Why a dry brush? Why not just brush my skin in the shower?
Brushing the skin whilst it's dry exfoliates and increases your blood circulation without losing moisture, the water in the shower can steal your skin's moisture.
How do I use a dry brush?
I usually start from my feet and work my way up in long strokes on my legs and arms and circular motions on my tummy and back. It can be a bit more sensitive on the tummy, breasts and neck, so use less pressure whenever needed.
A few swipes per area is enough. Do this once a day. The best time to dry brush is just before a shower. Then you can wash off any dead skin cells and flaky skin.
