Relieves stressJust like it’s best to dry brush in the morning, one of the best ways to ensure you get the most out of your dry brushing routine is to do it right before taking a shower. This will make sure you can wash off any dead skin cells and get back that healthy, natural glow. After finishing your dry brushing and shower routine, make sure to moisturise your skin. Your unclogged pores will be particularly prone to absorbing everything, so make sure to use a pure moisturiser with no toxins. If your skin is particularly dry or you want to nourish it that extra bit, I definitely suggest adopting the dry brushing + scrubbing routine. My skin, unfortunately, doesn’t take body scrubs very well at all. They’re often painfully rough and drying. At best, they leave my skin feeling waxy for a short while before we’re back to dryness.
