Using a Dry Body Brush & Skincare
Why use a dry body brush? Well, everyone has their own preferences when it comes to skincare. Despite that, the basis of a good skincare routine always remains the same: cleanse, tone and moisturize. Generally, we think of these three skincare pillars when it comes to caring for our faces – but what happens below the neck line? Using a dry body brush can help.

Dry body brushing is an age old skincare ritual which involves a combination of massage and exfoliation.

Using a dry body brush is thought to help the body release toxins through sweat. The sisal bristles on the BM&Y dry body brush stimulate the pores and open them up. This makes it easier for the body to sweat, which in turn reduces the amount of toxins flowing through the lymphatic system.
Did you know that dry body brushing helps to improve your circulation? But why is this important?
Proper circulation is key for maintaining optimal health. It ensures that blood and oxygen continuously flow throughout the body, allowing every organ to function properly. This in turn helps to keeps your brain sharp, heart healthy, improves the radiance of your skin.
How do you do it?:
Dry body brushing takes just a few minutes each day and is a simple step to add to your existing skincare and beauty routine. The process involves moving a dry, natural brush over the body in long, pressured strokes. Using a BM&Y dry body brush you simply:
- Slip your fingers through the rope and firmly hold the ergonomic handle
- Starting at your feet, brush in circular motions – working your way up the body
- Repeat this action over legs, chest, arms and back
NOTE: Avoid brushing sensitive areas. We recommend using the BM&Y reusable makeup remover pads for gentle exfoliation and cleansing of your face and sensitive areas.
