Sensory seekers *love* dry brushing. The brisk stimulation can be tailored by you to be as gentle or firm, fast or slow as you like. Dry brushing has been a traditional practice in many cultures and, if it’s new to you, can become a welcome addition to your self-care routines.
Your choice of brush is important. While animal-free brushes are available, synthetic bristles may damage the skin and sisal bristles may be too firm for beginners. Cruelty-free natural boar bristles are the preferred choice for their gentle compatibility with our skin. Additional options include using a soft, dry washcloth or a loofah but as these are not intended for dry brushing, may be ineffective or damage the skin.
How To Dry Brush
The dry brushing technique will please anyone who loves rituals and routines. Start at the toes and methodically brush upwards towards the heart. See the video below for instructions.
To start, brush one or two days per week to see how you enjoy it and how your body reacts. Always be gentle. Never brush injured or infected skin and stop if you notice redness, irritation, or inflammation. Dry brushing is intended to be stimulating and enjoyable.
Aside from the sensory benefits, dry brushing is exfoliating, increases circulation (vasodilatating), stimulates the lymphatic system, and leaves you feeling relaxed and refreshed. It’s become a trend in the beauty and wellness industries but regardless of that, remains beneficial for adults of all ages and genders. Give it a try!
