I will let you in on a little secret. Dry brushing your skin is a fabulous way to start the day!
Disclosure: I received a complimentary bath brush from BrusyBrush to test and review.
I agreed because I use to dry brush for years until my brush wore out. I could not find a soft enough brush locally and was a little wary about mail ordering one. This looked just like my old brush (only with a longer handle) so I thought it was worth a review. It turns out I was correct in my hope!
Please note I am not a medical professional, and am just sharing my personal experience and opinion. Please research for yourself.
The main reason I enjoy dry brushing is that it provides gentle exfoliation and it feels great. I find it an invigorating way to start the day and feel my skin is responds better to moisturizer and other treatments. My skin typically looks best when I regularly dry brush (though I am just getting back into it so these pictures are not the best example).
Dry brushing enthusiasts claim all sorts of benefits including improved circulation, lymph drainage, improved skin tone and other benefits. I am not so sure about these, but I do find it beneficial and pleasant to do. So any added health benefits are a plus.
Tips for Dry Brushing With a Bath Brush
- Use a soft, natural bristled brush, there are different types of brushes that work but it should be gentle on your skin.
- Brush dry skin before a bath or shower
- Start at the feet, brush toward your heart/center, some prefer a slight circular motion. I usually do this standing. Some advice circular clockwise motions on the torso. Adjust pressure to your comfort–I prefer a soft touch. (Avoid brushing very delicate and intimate areas).
- Shower or bathe
- After your shower or bath, you may enjoy a nice moisturizing oil or lotion. This is a great time to use a natural oil such as shea butter, coconut oil, argan oil or whatever you prefer. Clean, freshly exfoliated skin seems to absorb oils and moisturizer best!

About the BrusyBrush Bath Brush:
The BrusyBrush Bath Brush is made from natural boar bristles and wood for the handle. The handle is 17″ to reach down your back. The brush head is two-sided– one with soft bristles and the other had massage nibs. I like to gently use the nibbed side before a post-workout shower (if at home).
