Body brushing for beautiful soft skin

With increasing age, the renewal of skin cells slows down, but we don’t have to agree with it. We can do a lot for the condition and renewal of our skin. If you’ve heard of dry body brushing but haven’t become part of your beauty ritual yet, it might be time to introduce into your daily routine. While body brushing is a relatively new wellness trend nowdays, it actually has its roots in ancient times.  So why a body brush?

– promotes the formation of new skin cells,
– speeds up renewal processes,
– increases skin metabolism,
– stimulates the lymphatic system,
– helps eliminate toxins,
– reduce the appearance of cellulite,
– pulls off inflamed skin,
– enhances nutrients absorption by the skin

When should you use a body brush?
Body brushing is best done before hopping into the bath or shower. The complete process only takes a couple of minutes. Most experts recommend dry brushing in the morning, rather than before bed, because they believe it has energizing qualities. But really you can dry brush whenever is convenient for you. Dry-brushing the skin every day before showering will increase firmness and tone, encouraging cellulite deposits and areas of congestion to disperse. Plus it helps get rid of ingrown hairs.


How to do it?
In dry brushing, the skin is typically brushed toward the heart, starting at the feet and hands and brushing toward the chest. The lymphatic fluid flows through the body towards the heart, so it’s important that you brush in the same direction.The bristles of the brush manually sweep away dull, rough, flaky skin cells. After your dry brushing session, shower or bathe, then finish with an application of lotion, body balm, or body oil. Due to the dry brushing your skin will feel softer and smoother. Beyond this affects, most people feel invigorated and energized after a dry brush session.


What kind of brush is suitable?
Natural, sustainable bristle is generally considered the best. These are made from plant sources like jute, sisal, even cactus fibers. A dry brush can come in multiple shapes and sizes, but usually features natural bristles that are soft enough to sweep across your face and body, and oftentimes includes a long handle for harder to reach places (like your back). For the face, take extra care in choosing a brush. The brush you’re using for your body won’t work for the face. Instead, you’ll need a smaller brush with much softer bristles. 


How do you clean your dry brush?
To clean your dry brush, water and soap should do. You can add in some tea tree oil as well.


Benefits
The process of dry brushing your skin simply feels great! It is even better when done among the first things you do in the day. The improved circulation helps make you more alert and relaxed at the same time which gives you a sensation of joy and satisfaction that can positively affect the rest of your day. 


Precautions
Anyone with sensitive skin or inflammatory skin conditions like rosacea, eczema, or psoriasis should skip dry brushing.
Illness, medication and pregnancy can all alter the sensitivity of the skin and, even if dry brushing was previously fine, it may not feel good at these times.


Tips
It’s fantastic to do in conjunction with a sauna or steam, too.
Dry brushing can be a simple luxury to add to your self-care routine.
It’s better to start with a softer brush, later you may prefer a stiffer, firmer brush.
