This practice has many benefits, such as exfoliating the skin, stimulating blood and lymphatic circulation, and reducing cellulite.
Stimulation of lymphatic circulation
Dry brushing also helps stimulate lymphatic circulation to remove toxins. This can help reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Dry brushing is a beauty ritual that is similar to active meditation. A calm moment to take care of your body that can help reduce stress and improve your mood.
How to do it?
Preferably use a natural hair brush, which should be firm but not too hard to avoid scratching the skin. For sensitive areas such as the face, prefer a soft brush made of goat hair.
Dry brushing should be done on dry skin, before taking a shower or bath.

Start by brushing the feet and legs, using circular motions to stimulate blood circulation. Then move to the abdomen and back, brushing gently in a clockwise direction.
After finishing, take a shower or bath to remove dead skin cells and toxins from your body.
