It is effective, easy to apply, and, last but not least, it is very cheap. The dry exfoliation, also dubbed dry brushing, is one of the beauty treatments that offer the best results. If you do not know it yet, take advantage of this stage of forced confinement to discover it, and you will probably make it an ally for life to renew your skin and make it offer its best appearance.
And it is that although your epidermis, by itself, is renewed naturally every month, replacing dead cells with new ones, there are factors such as contamination or age that make this regeneration not take place as it should. In this way, your skin ceases to oxygenate properly and does not absorb the nutrients and water it so badly needs. You can correct this deficiency; If you opt for the dry one, you will eliminate more dead cells than with the wet peel.
What products do you need?
Good news: dry blow drying is done as its name suggests and does not require any product, so the only thing you will need is a good natural bristle brush, for example, bamboo, and ideally with a long handle that allows you to comfortably reach all areas of your body. With this, you must exert a moderate pressure on your body that, in addition to exfoliating the skin, will stimulate your blood circulation.
How should you do the exfoliation?
Taking into account that, in addition to softening the skin, we intend to stimulate circulation, you should always start exfoliating through the feet and go up towards the chest, that is, always towards the heart. Start with these and go up through the ankles towards the knees, following the glutes, hips, and groins, with a few short movements that should consist of making lines upwards. Then it continues up the arms, also upward. The torso will be the last phase.
When and how often to do it
The most recommendable thing is that the dry exfoliation is done in the morning because it has energizing properties and will help you start your day as energetic and renewed. The frequency depends on your skin type and the hardness of the bristles of the chosen brush, you can make it a daily ritual or choose to do it twice a week. Keep in mind, in any case, that it is in the constancy where its effectiveness resides, and that if you can incorporate it into the daily routine, you will have a great ally against the hated orange peel.
Facial care requires specific treatment
To treat the face, you must do it with completely clean skin without makeup or products of any kind. Make upward and circular movements for one minute, starting at the neckline and going up to the facial oval. Also draw lines from the center of the face outwards, starting from the chin to the ears and then to the forehead, repeating each line three times, and ending with small circular movements in the opposite direction, from the forehead to the chin.
Do you have problems?
Avoid skin areas where you have a sunburn, wounds, and other areas sensitive to rubbing, and in no case, exfoliate if you have sensitive, extremely dry or pustular acne skin. People with skin problems and diseases such as rosacea, eczema, or psoriasis should not opt for this technique either.
