Body brushing

Why is body brushing great for you?

Body brushing is a traditional natural health practice, which involves dry brushing the skin before a shower or bath. Dry body brushes offer amazing benefits through exfoliation, increased circulation, cellulite reduction, smoother skin and body brushing detoxifies the lymphatic system. A dry body brush leaves your skin visibly smoother and you'll also find that your body moisturisers go further and save you money because they soak into the skin more easily.  Using a natural body brush provides better results than a synthetic body brush because the natural plant bristles have tiny hooks and imperfections which gather the dead skin while sweeping over the body. 

How to choose the right body brush for you

Dry body brushes are made of natural materials and vary in bristle firmness for body brushing preferences.
