Dry brushing is the newest “thing.” Normally I try to avoid beauty fads, I’m more into investing in timeless, classic, and proven beauty products. But when I heard that dry brushing could solve all my problems from bacne to KP I decided that I couldn’t lose much by trying it out. So I ran out to Target and spent the $6 required to but The Bathery’s Bath Brush. Now, it wasn’t life-changing, but it definitely had its benefits. I noticed a definite improvement in my skin and actually enjoyed incorporating the process into my day.
So, how exactly does one dry brush? Here’s the rundown:
- Stand in the tub/shower. You want to be able to catch all the dead skin you brush off…gross I know.
- Lightly brush in long strokes, and always brush towards your heart.
- Start at your feet and work upwards until you get to your chest. Then start from the neck and brush down. Don’t forget your back!
- Do this morning and night.
You’ll notice that it wakes you up in the mornings, and you sleep better at night. Plus any discoloration and bumpiness/blemishes significantly improve. So go ahead and try it out, what do you have to lose?
