After all the buzz surrounding it, we at BeautyDesk were still wondering “what is dry brushing your skin” and if we needed it in our lives. It turns out that one third of your body’s toxins are pushed out through the skin and that dry brushing can help to unclog pores and get those trapped out. We say, let’s get our summer glow on in the most natural way we can this year so we’ve got a how-to guide with some much needed info on everything dry brushing.
While methodologies vary, dry brushing is a beauty technique that has been used throughout history to promote healthy, glowing skin. Practitioners recommend using a natural bristled brush and “brushing” your limbs and torso in motions that sweep toward your heart, for up to 10 minutes every day.
