The Benefits of Dry Brushing
Dry brushing is a powerful way to exfoliate and detoxify the skin. Dry brushes are typically made with firm, natural fibers that help exfoliate, invigorate and revitalize skin.
The process is most known for removing dead skin cells, improving the texture of skin, and reducing the appearance of cellulite. Skin will look visibly re-energized.
The coarse fibers will help to remove dead skin and improve the skin’s ability to eliminate toxins.

Use your dry brush before showering or bathing, on dry skin. We recommend dry brushing 1-3 times a week, depending on the skin's sensitivity.
Start at your feet and brush upwards towards your heart. This is a full body experience so make sure to get your entire body. Brush in long strokes, 5-10 seconds per area. Be sure not to press too hard, as the fibers will work their magic.
After dry brushing hop in the shower to clean off your skin. You should feel an invigorating sensation all over your body.
Moisturize within two minutes of showering, as your skin will be best prepared to take on moisture. One of our hydrating oils or body cream will do the trick!Shop Soothing Oils
Can I use a dry brush on my face?
It’s not recommended. To understand what option is best, look for face-specific dry brushes, as body brushes made of sisal or Jujutete will likely cause too much irritation to the face.
Can I clean my dry brush?
Yes. Clean your dry brush every couple of weeks by washing it with soap and water and then hanging it up to dry.
Will this help with razor burn?
To combat razor bumps it’s recommended to work on preventing them entirely. One method is to use a dry brush, usually made with more gentle jute material, to help draw out hairs in your skin. This can lead to better hair regrowth leading to less razor burn and irritation.
Can I only use the dry brush before showering?
Try dry brushing before you begin a workout and you’ll find that it will help open up your pores and intensify the detox effect. Whether you are doing a HIIT class, running, spinning, or just headed to the gym, get out your dry brush a couple of minutes before you start the workout, and get the full benefit of sweating and detoxing your skin.
Please consult your doctor for the best advice on pregnancy. From our experience, it’s highly recommended to avoid your tummy, as during pregnancy you are looking to moisturize the skin as it expands. Dry brushing would exfoliate and is likely to cause irritation on the tummy. However, dry brushing other areas of your body is recommended to increase circulation. Again, listen to your body as during pregnancy you may have extra sensitive skin and dry brushing won’t be encouraged.
You will need to clean your dry brush every couple of weeks (steps below). You should replace your dry brush every 2-3 months, as dead skin cells will build up. Regularly cleaning will make it last longer, but the bristles will naturally soften and fall out.
