View Full Version : Dry brush recommendations or experience?
01-16-2008, 04:17 PM
I was wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a dry brush? Mostly I wanted to try it on my back and see if it helped with oil or acne, which I don't have much of. Also on any info or experience on the subject would be appreciated. Can you dry brush your face? Are there separate brushes?

i bought the best one i could find (stronger bristles) at the health food store. the first time i did it, it seemed too rough, but i quickly got used to it. my skin is so soft (although i think that's also from being raw)...
i haven't done my head at all... but i'm not sure if i should be. i've been brushing for two weeks. ;) hope that helps a little...
i just did a search and found this link within another thread on skin brushing:'

If you are new to dry brushing you could see if it works for you first by using a dry flannel, loofah, or anything like that lying around, then purchase the better brush if your body responds well to it!
I used to manage a store called The Body Shop that sells all the brushing gadgets, and I remember there were a decent amount of people who actually used the brushes on their face. I thought that sounded just awful at the time.
Not to long ago, I started using a big wooden hard-bristled body brush on my skin, head to toe. It really was a bit painful on my face the first few times I did it. Then I got used to it, and it really softened up all of my skin big time.
