What are some ways dry brushing can impact your overall health and wellness?

Dry brushing is an invigorating and empowering practice that serves many purposes, from making skin look smoother to boosting immunity! Exfoliating with dry brushing removes dead skin cells and unclogs pores for a radiant glow. Not only does this powerful tool reduce inflammation & stress - it can also help boost your energy levels and improve digestion throughout the day too!

What kind of brush do you recommend for dry brushing, and how often should someone do it?

When searching for the perfect dry brush, keep in mind that natural bristles are always the best choice. Too much pressure from synthetic brushes can be damaging to your skin, leaving you without any of its beneficial effects. While soft or gentle-bristled dry brushing is not effective enough to provide suitable exfoliation and stimulation, medium to firm bristled brushes nourish and invigorate with just the right amount of thoroughness, making them a great selection!

Generally, the recommended frequency is once per day in the morning before showering; however, some people may require further adjusting based on their own unique needs and sensitivities. Be sure to use light pressure when dry brushing—especially around sensitive areas such as chest or stomach—while avoiding any bruised, rash-prone or cut regions of skin. With mindful practice of this self care ritual, you are likely to find great comfort in both its therapeutic benefits and gentle relaxing results!

Are there any potential risks or side effects associated with dry brushing, and how can someone avoid them?

If your skin is sensitive or dry, use light pressure during dry brushing and stop if you experience any signs of irritation such as redness or itching. Additionally, vigorous movements when applying the brush may lead to broken capillaries near the surface of the skin—it’s best to stick with gentle strokes for this reason too! Lastly, make sure that your brush remains clean by washing regularly so infection doesn't occur.

Some people find the sensation of dry brushing uncomfortable or irritating. How can someone make the experience more enjoyable or effective?

If the sensation of dry brushing feels a little uncomfortable at first, don't worry—there are a few steps you can take to make your experience more pleasant. Start by easing into it with light pressure and softer brushes until you get used to how it feels. Once finished, always remember that moisturizing afterwards is essential so as not to leave your skin feeling dehydrated from brushing away those impurities!

What are the steps of PROPERLY dry brushing (i.e., should you apply oils/moisturize before? Can you do it before OR after showering or should you only do it before?)

Start at your feet, and use long sweeping motions towards your heart. Stimulate lymphatic drainage by using circular motion on sensitive areas like stomach and armpits—just make sure to avoid delicate facial skins altogether when you brush. Move up through arms, legs, chest and back before hopping in a shower afterwards to rinse off dead cells or debris that have been removed during this process. Then don't forget a good moisturizing session post-shower as well. Finally, cleanse out any remaining residue from the bristles of your brush afterward so it's ready for next time! As for timing, experiment with when works best in order for you to feel most relaxed—this could be in the morning or evening before bedtime.
