Have you ever heard of dry brushing? And if yes, how often do you use your dry brush? I got my first one seven years ago because I wanted to get rid of dry skin. But as it was too harsh, I did not use it regularly.
Last week I watched Gwyneth Paltrow’s beauty tips on Vogue. In the video, Gwyneth shared her beauty and wellness tips. Although she is seen by some as detached from reality, I like her. She looks natural, her skin is clean and not plastered with make-up, and she looks like she does not take herself too seriously. I also like the clean beauty tips that she shares on goop.com.
Well, to make a long story short, I decided to give dry brushing another try. I found my new bristle brush in the pharmacy for less than 20 CHF. It has a removable peartree wooden handle and natural bristles.
WHAT IS DRY BRUSHING?
Dry brushing = brushing over dry skin with a natural, bristle brush. Always brush towards your heart. If it feels too painful and your skin gets scratched, change the brush. The brush should not be too hard nor too soft. To reach behind your back or the shoulders, get a brush with a removable long handle.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF REGULAR DRY BRUSHING?
Exfoliation – dry brushing removes dry, flaky skin.
Stimulates Circulation – when you brush your skin with a brisk brush, it stimulates your circulation.
Energizing Effect – afterward, I brush my skin, I feel awoke and envigorated. Maybe it is the stimulated circulation, but I feel every part of my body. I feel fresh and new.
