Skincare is more than just taking care of your face; don’t forget about the skin covering the rest of your body. One of the hottest trends right now is dry brushing, which dermatologists and celebrities alike tout as a great way to take care of your skin from the neck down.
Dry brushing is an ancient Ayurvedic practice where you use a brush with "coarse, natural-fiber bristles" (per Healthline) that you move in a circular motion all over your body. Dry brushing helps you relax, exfoliates the top layer of dead skin cells, and helps release toxins through your pores.
To get the best benefits, brush dry skin before you shower, and then use a moisturizer with humectants on your damp skin afterward. It's more beneficial to moisturize your skin after dry brushing, because a lack of dead cells will help the nourishing ingredients from your moisturizer go deeper into the skin for better hydration as well.
