Used as a part of the new body treatment at our Institutes and Spas, dry brushing holds the key to unlocking radiant skin with your body care ritual.

Dry brushing is a centuries-old practice that involves using a natural-bristled brush to massage the skin in a particular pattern, typically before showering or bathing.

The technique is simple yet impactful, as it offers a host of benefits for your skin and overall wellbeing.

Why should you consider making it a part of your daily routine? Keep reading to learn more about this ancient technique, its benefits and how to make the most of it...

How Does Dry Brushing Work? 

The process of dry brushing involves gently brushing your skin in long, sweeping motions towards your heart. Starting from your feet and moving upwards, each stroke should overlap slightly. This motion helps stimulate the lymphatic system, which is responsible for removing toxins and waste from the body. By promoting lymphatic drainage, dry brushing aids in detoxification, reducing puffiness, and improving circulation.

The Benefits of Dry Brushing 

1. Exfoliates:
Dry brushing helps slough off dead skin cells, resulting in smoother, softer skin. This exfoliation also allows for better absorption of skincare products, maximising their efficacy.

2. Stimulates Circulation:
The gentle pressure of dry brushing increases blood flow to skin's surface, resulting in a healthy, radiant complexion. Improved circulation can also help reduce the appearance of cellulite and promote overall skin health.

3. Lymphatic Support:
By stimulating the lymphatic system, dry brushing assists in the removal of toxins and waste products from the body. This can help reduce inflammation and promote a stronger immune system.

4. Stress Relief:
The rhythmic motion of dry brushing can be incredibly soothing, promoting relaxation and reducing stress levels. Incorporating this practice into your daily routine can serve as a calming self-care ritual.

5. Energising:
Dry brushing in the morning helps invigorate their senses and provides a natural energy boost to start the day on the right foot.

How to Incorporate Dry Brushing into Your Skincare Routine 

1. Choose the Right Brush:
Opt for a natural-bristled brush with a long handle, allowing you to reach all areas of your body easily.

2. Timing:
Dry brushing best performed before showering or bathing, preferably in the morning to take advantage of its energising effects.

3. Technique:
Begin with gentle pressure, gradually increasing as your skin becomes accustomed to the sensation. Remember to always brush towards your heart to support lymphatic drainage.

4. Frequency:
Aim to dry brush your body 2-3 times per week, adjusting based on your skin's sensitivity and response.

After dry brushing, follow up with Body Serum and a moisturiser or oil to replenish skin barrier and seal in hydration.
