Dry body brushing is more than just a passing fad. It exfoliates and helps with cellulite too. Here’s how to do it.
Dry body brushing is one of those things you always read about in magazine articles, but have probably wondered if it actually works, or if it’s just another “magic” beauty thing that’s all hype and no substance. Well here’s the thing about dry body brushing: it’s not new at all. In fact it’s been around for centuries, used by the Greeks, Native Americans and Japanese people as an important part of the bathing ritual. In Ayurveda it’s called Garshana and is as common as brushing your teeth.
However, just like other ancient wellness practices like gua sha and jade rolling it’s resurfaced with gusto over the last decade because we’ve realised just how good it is for you. Here’s how and why you should incorporate dry body brushing into your daily routine.
