How to Dry-Brush Your Skin and Its Benefits

How did you feel afterward? What kind of changes did you notice?

Softer skin is an obvious side effect since I was physically exfoliating my entire body daily. I’m not sure about it being detoxifying, but I’m going to believe it! It did help with cellulite, but I have to admit that mine was very minimal to begin with. I honestly don’t think dry body brushing is a magical cellulite cure.

What did you like about it?

I enjoyed the feeling of infusing my ordinary routine with this moment of self-care. There were days when I made a whole ritual out of it by applying a face mask, slipping into my robe and slippers, enjoying a cup of warm lemon water, and even letting my bathroom fill up with steam before going in. I’d extend my post-brushing showers with a face scrub and some luxe lotion after I’d toweled off. I basically turned my home into a spa. 

What did you hate?

I hated that it was an extra step before showering. This might sound contradictory to what I said I liked most about it, but while some days I loved that I was treating myself, there were definitely also days when I just wanted to jump in the shower without spending the time to do my dry body brushing first.
