Dry brushing the skin is a natural skincare technique that involves brushing the body dry with a brush made of natural bristles . Among its many benefits, we find the elimination of dead cells and a softening of the skin. It becomes firmer and more toned. In this article, we will see the benefits and how to do dry brushing.

The benefits of dry brushing for the skin

Every day, millions of cells die on the surface of the skin. Exfoliation removes these dead cells to make new and soft skin.

Its benefits are:

  • Unclog pores leaving it softer and smoother.
  • The friction of the brush on the epidermis allows better oxygenation of the tissues.
  • Drains toxins through the open pores of the skin.
  • Massage stimulates blood circulation and the lymphatic system.
  • Be an ally against cellulite (in the thighs, stomach, buttocks, saddlebags, etc.).
  • Improves the penetration of your cosmetics because you will have eliminated dead cells.

( Lymphatic system : It has many functions, the main one being the circulation of immune cells throughout the body and the activation of the immune response during an infection. It also helps in the circulation of hormones and nutrients and allows drainage of excess fluid from the tissues. )

Who can dry brush and how often?

Almost anyone can do it. It is particularly indicated for those who want an "anti-aging" or "detox" treatment for their body. But also to fight against water retention in the legs, cellulite, old stretch marks and scars. Be careful, your scars must be old and closed so as not to injure yourself.

It is suitable for both dry and oily skin.

In the attack phase, you perform it every day, for 4 to 5 minutes to feel the benefits. Then you go to twice a week. Finally, for maintenance, once a week is more than enough.

How to dry brush?

You have to be gentle so as not to attack the skin, especially if it's your first time. At first the epidermis may not be accustomed to it, so do not press too hard on the brush. As you brush, you will find the ideal pressure suitable for your skin.
