Dry Brushing - What Is It?

After reading this article, your life will be changed. Dry brushing is the newest beauty phenomenon! Basically, it’s a juice cleanse for your body.


What is Dry Brushing?

Dry brushing is an essential and energizing step for your body inside and out! It exfoliates the skin making it feel softer and more radiant, while also increasing circulation, boosting lymphatic drainage and improving muscle tone. Are you convinced yet?!


Dry brushing has traveled across time routing back from ancient pre-bath rituals and since then it has evolved in the beauty industry. Dry skin in February? No worries, we have you covered. Struggling with cellulite? Don’t worry, dry brushing can help for that too.


How Can Dry Brushing Help Me?

Dry brushing can help in boosting your lymphatic system. It’s very similar to the vascular system as lymph is a fluid just like blood that exists mostly in vessels that circulate around the body. Another reason you should dry brush is to exfoliate the skin because you will feel smoother and look more radiant in those cold winter months! Lastly, try brushing to reduce the appearance of cellulite!


How Do I Properly Use My Dry Brush?

The best rule of thumb when you are dry brushing is to firmly brush your skin in long strokes toward your heart. Usually going over each area of your body two or three times. Do this a couple times a week.


Dry brushing is normally done before showering and should be followed with a moisturizer like our coconut oil. This will help repair your skin when it's exfoliated.


Overall, use your dry brush before showering in combination with Conscious Coconut Oil to cleanse, detoxify, and moisturize the skin. Your body will be feeling smooth and soothed! You can also check out our Instagram for more information about dry brushing.
