Dry brushing is a method of gently exfoliating your skin using a special firm-bristled brush. Some people use it as part of their skin routine to try to restore firmness, get rid of dry skin flaking, and encourage blood flow to certain areas of the body. Dry brushing has roots in healing practices of ancient cultures.
How many times a week should you dry brush your skin?
As a general rule of thumb, though, dry brushing no more than one to two times per week. And don't forget to wash your brush with baby shampoo at least twice a month to get rid of all of that dead skin build up. If you have ultra-sensitive skin, try dry brushing once every couple of weeks.
The simple act of pampering your skin with a natural bristle body brush takes only a few minutes, but it helps with many different conditions by:
Improving symptoms associated with toxic mold exposure
And supporting the body’s ability to detox
Damaged skin can easily be treated with a quick dry brushing instead of expensive creams and lotions.
