dangers of dry brushing

Dry brushing is a popular skincare technique involving a firm bristled brush to exfoliate the skin. However, dry brushing can do more harm than good if it needs to be done correctly. This blog post will explore the dangers of dry brushing and why you should reconsider adding this step to your skincare routine.

Dry brush massage – stress for the skin

Dry brushing is a massage technique that is done with a dry brush on dry skin. It is not a pleasant experience for everyone because the skin can get injured easily. Cracks and redness may appear on the skin, but they might not be visible to the naked eye. After this procedure, the skin will become smoother and look more toned. The upper layer of the skin is removed. It also happens when you use a body scrub with large particles. The light will hit the skin differently, making you look more slender.

Dry brushing can also strip the skin of its natural oils, leaving it feeling dry and tight. It can lead to dehydration and other skin problems like wrinkles and age spots. Furthermore, brushing too quickly or vigorously may disrupt your natural sebum production and cause acne. After such a massage, use a moisturizer that will restore its pH. And in no case do not take warming creams, designed to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin and burn all the fat deposits. Firstly, you will burn so that life on Earth will seem like a paradise, and secondly, they will not burn everything you are counting on. It is better to use such “fuel” on a specially designated day and not on the day of a brush massage.

However, this abrasive technique can be damaging to the skin. Brushing too hard or pressing down with too much pressure can cause physical injuries like cuts and bruises. It is especially true if your brush bristles are too stiff or your skin is sensitive. Also, dry brushing can worsen some existing skin conditions, such as eczema or psoriasis.

For these reasons, it’s important to be gentle when dry brushing. If you try this technique, make sure to use a soft brush and go slowly. You should also avoid areas that are sensitive or have existing skin conditions. And finally, moisturize your skin after you’re done to counteract any drying effects.

The best way to fight cellulite is with a holistic approach that includes proper nutrition, regular exercise, anti-cellulite products, and massage. But you have to use the right products. For example, you can use a special jar for self-performing vacuum massage instead of a brush. It is also more enjoyable and not as traumatic for your skin. But be careful because there are some conditions where you cannot use this method (like varicose veins, oncology, or diabetes mellitus). So make sure you read the instructions carefully before using them.

It is best to find a professional body esthetician. They will choose the best massage for you and work on every part of your body. It will help start blood flow and lymph without harming your health.
