Dry brushing is the ultimate way to exfoliate your skin. To dry brush, use a brush with coarse or rough bristles made of natural fibers. Brush over your skin in your desired pattern, and you’ll be carefully removing dry skin and improving your skin in the process. Dry brushing is known to help you to improve your skin’s ability to eliminate unwanted toxins on its own. But what should you do after dry brushing? We’ve put together our favorite tips for post-dry brushing, so that you can add them to your daily routine.
Drink Plenty Of Water To Flush Out Toxins
After dry brushing, it’s a good idea to flush out toxins from your body by drinking plenty of water. Drinking water is a natural way for your body to detox unwanted toxins, and after a heavy exfoliation, it’s a good idea to help your body in any way you can, by providing it with what it needs to do its best (hint: it’s water!).
Don’t Forget The Sunscreen Always
It’s important to keep your skin healthy, but after removing the outer layer of skin, it’s even more important than ever to make sure you’re using all the SPF you can. When you go outside after dry brushing, make sure you wear sunscreen (and maybe use some on non-dry brush days too).
Moisturize Your Skin And Soothe Your Skin
After any heavy exfoliation, it’s a fantastic idea to moisturize your skin. Our favorite skin moisturizer is our Kukui Body Lotion, which uses natural kukui nut oil as its main hydrator. Use this directly after your dry brush routine, and add it to your daily morning or night routine to keep skin feeling healthy.
Alternate With A Good Body Scrub With Hydrating Oil
You definitely don’t want to dry brush every single day. In between dry brushing, if you still want to exfoliate, incorporate our Sugar Body Scrub, a natural exfoliant that uses Hawaiian Cane Sugar and Kukui Nut Oil to exfoliate and moisturize in one hydrating step.
Eat Nutrient-rich Foods To Replenish Your Body
Exfoliation, especially with a dry brush, can put your skin through a lot. It’s a full body detox! So it’s important to replenish your body by eating nutrient-rich foods like fruits and vegetables. These types of foods help to refresh your body and provide it with naturally-found hydration due to being water-rich foods. Plus, your body will thank you in the long run for it.
Dry brushing is a great way to detox your skin, but it’s important to take care of it after. Using any combination of these techniques will have your body feeling oh-so good!
