Have you heard of dry brushing? Dry Brushing is a daily body massage with a dry, stiff-bristled brush. This ritual of stimulating the skin with dry brushing has been used in many cultures for centuries, from Ayurveda to the ancient Egyptians, and traditional Chinese Medicine. Tata has been a fan of dry brushing for years due to its ability to help get rid of flaky skin, increase circulation and detoxify the lymphatic system. Bonus points: it also helps your beauty products work harder! Read on to learn about our latest launch: our Dry Body Brush.
Meet Our New Dry Body Brush
Our new Dry Body Brush is the perfect addition to your at-home body rituals. It features a large round wood base, a similarly shaped wood knob for ease of grasp, Tata Harper logo, and extra soft vegan bristles for extra gentle exfoliation. Unlike many of the brushes we’ve tried, this brush gently exfoliates the skin without pulling, tugging, or ever feeling harsh.
What Are The Benefits of Dry Brushing?
The physical exfoliation of dry brushing is excellent for exfoliating dry skin. Dry brushing is thought to unclog pores via exfoliation while also increasing blood circulation and promoting lymph flow and drainage. It also is believed to help to stimulate your nervous system, mimicking the same invigorating feeling that you may get after a good massage. It turns an ordinary shower or steam into a true moment of self care, and skin appears more radiant and smooth.
Wait — What's The Lymphatic System?
Giving yourself some lymphatic love is essential to everyday health and incorporating just five minutes of dry brushing into your day can be a great way to do so! The lymphatic system is part of the immune system.
It keeps body fluid levels in balance and defends the body against infections. Lymphatic tissues work together to drain a watery fluid called lymph throughout our body, how well this process is working directly impacts how we feel.
Okay I'm Sold: How Do I Dry Brush?
Dry brushing is great to do in the morning before a shower, sauna, or steam to energize the body.
Starting at your feet, use small short rhythmic strokes to work your way up and towards your heart. Once finished with the legs, move to your hands, and repeat the quick strokes working your way up towards your shoulders. Brush your shoulders and chest area towards towards the heart. You always want to use firm quick strokes and work your way to your heart (since it’s promoting circulation).
Lastly, do your stomach in a circular motion in a clockwise direction. Be sure not to press too firmly, the dry brush massage should feel good — it should never be uncomfortable.
