Dry Brushing!

When we’d heard dry skin brushing was an effective method for reducing cellulite, we knew we had to include it on our blog! Sure enough, it was indeed one of the more successful ways to smooth away less-than-perfect spots on your body. But the more we looked into it, the more benefits we learned this relatively simple routine had to offer. Not only does it buff away dead skin, but it’s fantastic at boosting circulation and lymphatic drainage, and ultimately ridding the body of toxins. Your skin is your biggest organ, after all.

The method itself is incredibly easy and only takes minutes, but there are a few guidelines to keep in mind, including the type of brush and the direction you move it. Below, four things you need to know about dry skin brushing.

How often: Dry skin brushing effectively opens up the pores on your skin. This is something you can — and should — be doing daily, even twice a day. Your skin should be dry, so the ideal time is in the shower before you turn on the water. Just a reminder, don’t get the brush wet.

Direction: You should only brush towards the heart. Making long sweeps, avoid back and forth, scrubbing and circular motions. Start at your feet, moving up the legs on both sides, then work from the arms toward your chest. On your stomach, direct the brush counterclockwise. And, don’t brush too hard: Skin should be stimulated and invigorated but not irritated or red.

Choosing the “Brush”

Start off with a natural bristle brush or loofah. Look for boar bristles or fibers from plants, synthetic bristles can be too harsh and cause irritation. Look for one that either fits in the palm of your hand; or has a shorter handle which can give you more control.  It is best to go into a store and feel the bristles so that you can find bristles, that best suits your taste.

The Dry Brushing Process

  1. Start with your feet, moving in soft circular movements (always moving towards the heart) first on the bottom of the feet, and then on the top.
  2. Work up each leg, one at a time, first the back of the leg (using the same soft circular, always towards the heart, movements) up through the buttock and then the front of the leg.  Avoid any delicate skin, like the skin on the insides of the thighs.
  3. After you are finished with the lower half, start at the fingertips of one arm; move up the arm (palms of hands, back of hands, forearm, bicep) and towards the heart.  Repeat on other arm.
  4. Move to the back (this is where a short handled brush may come in handy) working your movements towards your stomach, starting and finishing with one side of the back and then the other.
  5. When you get to your stomach, start at your lower abdomen and work your way up (make sure to steer clear of delicate areas like the nipples) and end at your chest in an upward stroke.
  6. Rinse off and shower as normal.

Skin brushing Tips

  • Avoid the face! While dry brushing is excellent for exfoliating skin, this body brush will be too rough for the delicate skin on your face.
  • It’s sometimes best to dry brush right before you shower since there may be a lot of dead skin brushed off.
  • Try using a natural and healthier body soap (like those containing natural peppermint or tea tree oil) since the pores in your skin are open and clear. We have an amazing Rosemary & Mint Soap here at Fleur de Lis Salon!
  • However, it isn’t necessary to use soap to wash up in the shower or bath after dry brushing; your skin is as clean as it can be.drybrushing
