Dry Brushing

I’ve read that using a dry body brush before showering is great for circulation and problem spots, but I’ve yet to try it. I may give it a whirl.

  • Hi Preston! I started dry brushing after reading “the well path” by dr jame heskett. I can honestly say that book changed my life and my post-baby body. Have been following many of her tips over the last 2 years and dry brushing is one of them! I got a long handled brush at Whole Foods–I found it easier to do my back and back of thighs! It feels great and makes a diff! Good luck!

  • Dry brushing is so great. I try to do it daily if I can. Of course that never happens but I do my best. It’s incredibly important to move the lymph.

  • Okay, that’s it! I’ve been thinking about this for a while as well but of course keep forgetting to actually buy the brush. I’m setting a reminder in my phone for tomorrow. Thanks.

  • Right now, it definitely sounds great! My skin is soooo dry!

  • I’ve regularly dry-brushed for over two years and recommend it. I haven’t seen a tremendous change in cellulite or body composition, as some claims promise. The sensation is harsh at first but then it feels great and my skin has never been softer. I have definitely noticed my body feels slightly less “well” after periods of skipping the brushing, too, which is of course main reason to incorporate it into your daily routine.

  • That’s it, I’m getting a brush and adding this to my wellness regime.

  • Yes, Preston. Please do this every evening for your health. Brush upwards and in circular motions. Helps dry, flaky skin, improves circulation and many say it helps cellulite. Above all, it is relaxing.
    I love your style and your blog!

  • For Christmas my lovely daughter put together a beautiful little boxed selection of body care products. Included was a long handled bristle brush! I have absolutely loved it and use it several times a week! It’s simple & super quick to use. She advised me: before showering/on dry skin: starting at the ankles and working upward, brush in brisk circular motion, toward the heart. (Don’t forget your mid-section and under arms). Do it before a steam or shower. About once a week I follow with an exfoliation product. Be prepared – the first few times, it’s a bit of a shock to see what’s shedding off, so do this in your shower. My brush hangs in the shower to remind me to use it, and it’s quickly become routine. It’s also a game changer with leg waxing – waxing results are 100 percent better! For some reason, this works much better on elbows and knees than exfoliation product alone. On the subject of brushes, I bought the Oribe natural bristle hair brush, and I think it’s having a positive impact on my hair and scalp as well. So 2018 may be the year of the brush!?

  • Not very disciplined about using my dry brush, but one important benefit in addition to the health benefits is that dry brushing does not harm the environment like so many of the body scrubs. I repeatedly find some form of plastic in even the proported finest skin care lines. ultimately these end up in our water and fish.
