Dry body brushing is a quick, easy and effective ritual to add to your self-care. It has loads of skin and health benefits, takes less than 2 minutes to do, and feels super invigorating.
Dry brushing increases circulation and blood flow, revitalising the skin, and stimulating the lymphatic system to help detoxification. It’s great for cellulite and a sluggish system. It's also amazing for all-over exfoliation: dry brushing removes dead skin cells and unclogs pores, and encourages better cell turnover for smoother, softer and more glowy skin. The all-over body exfoliation also allows your moisturiser/other skincare to penetrate deeper.
How to Dry Brush: Simply brush your body in strokes toward your heart. Brush each area quite quickly, about ten time. Start at the tops of your feet, then brush upwards on your shins and calves, then knees, then thighs. Brush your bottom in circular motions - dry brushing is great for blemishes and cellulite. Next, move onto your torso. Start with your hands, brushing up in long strokes towards your shoulder. On your tummy and chest, do circular motions. Your skin should be nicely pink afterwards.
Use a few times a week - or even daily if you like - ideally in the morning before you jump in the shower.
A century ago, Andrée Jardin’s future husband, Georges René Julio, started out as an apprentice brush maker in Nantes. In 1947, he opened his own factory and the adventure began. In 2012, Jean-Baptiste and François-Marie (Andrée’s and Georges René’s grandchildren) created the Andrée Jardin brand (named after their grandmother) and have been producing beautifully crafted brushes ever since. They work with designers to create beautiful-looking household accessories, and most importantly, work with the best French craftsmen, to make each brush and product the traditional way.
