Dry Brushing

Dry brushing has been done for thousands of years since the Ayurvedic times, but lately it’s been gaining popularity. I too am loving it and here’s why. After coming back from our beach vacation a few weeks ago, I started peeling on my shoulders and my skin looked really dry. I decided to pull out my dry brush and get to work on making my skin glow again. My routine is that I dry brush right before I take a shower in the morning to slough off all of the dry/dead skin and then apply coconut oil (see my blog on the benefits of coconut oil). Within days of starting this routine I noticed a big difference in the quality of my skin. It stays super soft and silky.  Since then, I’ve been so impressed that I’ve researched it a little more and am amazed at all of the benefits it truly has.

It’s very important to use the right kind of brush for the best results.  Make sure you choose one with natural bristles.  Here is the one that I’m loving.
