What You Should Know
Dry bushing is a body treatment that can be done in a professional setting and sold for at-home use. A firm dry brush should be used preferably in the morning, before showering or bathing. While dry brushing, use sweeping motions, always moving the brush towards the heart. The stroke should be light and intentional to not cause any irritation or damage to the skin. Do this daily to see positive effects in circulation and weight loss. If it's not causing skin irritation, it's safe to do daily if desired.
The best way to dry brush is to glide the body brush over dry skin using gentle pressure and long, sweeping motions, moving toward the heart (feet up to thighs, hands up to underarms, etc.
