How to Dry Brush Your Body

by Michelle Lui |

Dry brushing is one of those body treatments that really awakens your senses and feels incredible after you’re done. Your *new* skin will be silky-smooth as you slough off all the dead skin cells and open the way for maximum serum absorption.

Not only will you notice immediate results but it’s the long terms benefits that really make it a must-have ritual to incorporate into your bathing routine. Over the long term, it helps detoxify your skin by increasing blood circulation and promoting lymphatic flow. The stimulation of the lymphatic system is what helps you move out toxins and bring in good nutrients to every cell in the body.

Detoxify, exfoliate, and stimulate collagen? Let’s get it!

  1. Always dry brush on dry fresh skin, before you hop in the shower. No lotions or oils.
  2. Start with your feet and move upwards towards your heart.
  3. For the most effective results, you want to dry brush towards your major lymph nodes (neck, armpits, groin).
  4. Work in quadrants – think of your feet as one quadrant, your lower leg as another, your knee as the next, and so on.
  5. Spend 1-2 minutes per area.
  6. You want to brush both front and back of each quadrant to the best that you can.
  7. When you start on your arms, begin with your hands and work upwards.
  8. Use light but firm pressure.
  9. Small brush strokes upward.

    This ritual is typically practiced two to three times a week, but you can do it as often as daily, in the morning or evening. 

    After you are finished, you can hop in the shower and use our EUCALYPTUS COCO body wash to wash off all the dead skin cells.

    Post-shower you have to apply an oil (recommended) or moisturizer for maximum spa-worthy results. We of course love our ALL-OVER OIL for this.

    Results usually appear within the first two weeks.
