The Art of Dry Body Brushing

Whilst some beauty trends come and go, dry brushing is a skincare ritual that has stood the test of time and for good reason! With roots in Ayurvedic medicine, this wellness practice not only aids in lymphatic drainage and toxin removal but it also supports the breakdown of cellulite whilst exfoliating your skin.

Here, The Organic Pharmacy shares their top tips with you ahead of Spring and showing a little more skin…

Dry Brushing Top Tips:

  1. Make sure your skin is completely dry before you brush (preferably just before you shower).
  2. Start at your ankle, brushing in long, circular movements towards your heart.
  3. Maintain a slightly firm pressure as you brush.
  4. After rinsing off, be sure to use a moisturiser to hydrate your skin.
