It is also called body brushing or lymphatic brushing. This last term illustrates one of the interests of dry brushing: it revives the blood and lymphatic circulation.
The primary advantage of brushing the body is especially to help the skin eliminate the dead cells accumulated on the surface. The exfoliating action of the brush allows the skin to breathe more freely. Brushing also drains toxins (eliminated partly by the lymphatic circulation but also by the skin itself, via the pores thus opened).
Lymphatic brushing is truly deep cleansing. To help the lymph flow, movements should always be upward in the direction of evacuation to the lymph nodes, the major lymph nodes being located in the groin, armpits, and neck.
It is also a surface cleaning. It will make the skin soft and the penetration of cosmetics then much more effective.
Avoid if the skin is damaged, injured, or sick (eczema, acne, psoriasis, shingles).
How to use the dry brush:
1. Start with the feet, bottom, top, and then go up the legs in small circles to the top of the thighs.
2. Rub your hands and arms up to the armpits, before focusing on your back (a long handle can be helpful) and buttocks.
3. Move to the belly and gently touch the chest and nape of the neck.
4. Rinse at the end of brushing! Go in the shower to rinse with water, no need for soap, the skin is soft and you are clean as a whistle.
What is dry brushing?
It is a fairly old beauty and health technique. Better known in Asia than in the West, it consists of using a body brush to brush the body while naked and dry, without water or any cosmetic product.
