Catch a trend that will make a difference in your skin care maintenance and leave you looking beautiful: dry brushing!

Fitness and Health Expert Marzia Prince is coming at you with a holistic health tip that’s gonna change the way you approach skin care. Have you heard of dry brushing? It’s a trending topic, so it’s very possible that you have. But do you actually know what it is? If not, Marzia is here to save the day – dry brush in hand.

The skin is the largest organ of your body, and one third of your toxins are excreted through it. Sometimes dead skin cells may start piling up, trapping the toxins. One way to get rid of excess dead skin cells is by dry brushing. Purchase a natural bristle brush (available at most beauty stores and many drugstores), and begin brushing in long sweeping motions toward your heart. Brush several times in each area, taking care as you brush over more sensitive areas. Once you have brushed, hop in the shower, and (after getting out) pat dry your skin and apply a natural oil, such as coconut or olive oil, to nourish the skin.

This can be done a couple times a week to a couple times a day. After a few days, you’ll have silky-smooth skin you’ll be proud to show off.

  • I learned about dry brushing from the lifestyle recommendations that are part of my Kundalini yoga practice. One of the top recommendations is hydrotherapy, which involves first dry brushing your skin like you describe, then lathering sweet almond oil into the skin and taking a cold shower. In the shower, the key is to massage your whole body to increase circulation. This practice is done first thing in the morning. I'm curious what your thoughts are on putting a natural oil on the skin and then showering...

  • What type of brush and where to get one.
