How to do dry skin brushing Use a dry, natural (not synthetic, as they tend to be harsh and irritating) bristle brush on dry skin, preferably in the morning before showering/bathing. Follow the skin brushing with a warm bath or shower and a cool rinse at the end to invigorate blood circulation. If the skin becomes red, it may be from brushing too hard. Use long, gentle strokes in the proper direction; no back and forth motion, circular motion, scrubbing or massaging. The directions of the strokes are very important. The best resource to show and tell the correct way to dry skin brush can be found on YouTube, where individuals can view a routine done by Kibby Miller that clearly demonstrates how to do dry skin brushing and provides valuable information.
