For me, it was something I wanted to get into the habit of but successfully brushed off the thoughts by not even buying one. Why ?! I was stuck in a dilemma, whether it is a needed thing or just hype !!!
What is DRY BRUSHING?
When you think of dry brushing, what comes to mind – alone and lone Exfoliation? I was on the same page for a long-time. With some research, I learned about all the value it can bring to health and the body. Yes, it is the process of getting rid of dead skin while increasing circulation.
But dry brushing is not limited to solely exfoliation. Long-term benefits include:
-help in getting rid of toxins
-increase blood circulation
-reduce the appearance of cellulite
– softer, smoother skin, and so on.
How to Dry Brush?
Always start from the feet and move the way up to the body. The direction of the stroke should be towards the heart and circular stroke on the stomach and joints.
The very first of mine and the one I am using is from Carelavco.
This Dry Brushing Body Brush Set comes with a big brush, a small brush for face and sensitive areas, a detachable handle for back or unreachable areas, a pair of exfoliating gloves to use in the shower, and a travel bag.
After using it for almost three months, I am very much enjoying it as part of my routine. It’s suggested that you can use it daily, but I use it before shower, 2-3 times a week, depending on how lazy I am not (just kidding). The reason behind not incorporating it into my day-to-day pre-shower ritual is because I don’t want to irritate the skin by overdoing it. I am not still comfortable at that level.
The 5-10 minutes of this process feels very energizing, relaxing just as getting massaged at a spa minus the expenses (a zen moment). My skin has felt a lot smoother, and I am looking forward to seeing improvements in cellulite and other benefits. After the shower, do not forget to hydrate and moisturizer the body with oil, cream, lotion, or whatever you prefer using- super important.
Be gentle – Harshness can damage the skin. As well as knowing your skin or any health condition before using one is the key to experience a positive outcome.
I love my at-home spa moment with dry brushing but still too early to say whether it is a must-have or not.
So, are you a team dry brushing, or its hype? I Would love to hear your thoughts.
If you are looking to try one, you can grab this set at Amazon.
