*This is a more abrasive brush than our long handle dry/wet brush. If you are new to dry brushing, we'd recommend our long handle dry/wet brush.

Dry brushing is a form of Ayurvedic medicine that has been around for centuries. It’s believed to have many health benefits including 

  • stimulating the lymphatic system
  • exfoliating the skin
  • helping the body rid itself of toxins
  • increasing circulation and energy
  • helping to break down cellulite 
  • helping to firm up skin

    While many bath sponges are made of plastic and are an ideal breeding ground for bacteria, this brush is made from FSC certified beechwood from Germany and features natural sisal bristles.

    This brush is compostable (remove the two pins) and vegan

    To dry brush:

    1. Start at your feet and move up your body.
    2. Brush your skin using wide, circular, clockwise motions.
    3. Use light pressure in areas where your skin is thin and harder pressure on thicker skin, like the soles of your feet.
    4. Brush your arms after you have brushed your feet, legs, and mid-section. You should brush upward towards your armpits.
    5. After dry brushing, take a shower to rinse and help remove the dry skin.

    When you first start dry brushing, it’s best to begin with light brushing. As you get used to it, you can increase the pressure.

    Avoid sensitive areas and anywhere the skin is broken. These include areas with:

    • rashes
    • wounds
    • cuts
    • infections

    Also, never brush an area affected by poison oak, poison ivy, or psoriasis. 

    This dry brush is not meant for the face. Make sure to hang your brush until it's dry before storing in a cupboard. Otherwise, store bristle side down.
