Dry Brushing

Daily body dry brushing has been performed around the world for centuries and is an essential step to

maintaining a healthy looking skin

 

Why we love it

 

Dry brushing exfoliates the skin and removes the top layer of dead skin cells which helps unclog pores and unveil healthy looking soft skin.

 

Doing this also removes toxins and stimulates local circulation resulting in increased cell turnover and firmer looking skin over time [1,2].

The Brush

A dry brush of good quality is important for optimal results. If the brush is too soft, it will not exfoliate the skin adequately and if it is too stiff, it can be irritating to the skin.

 

THOYA Laboratoire brush is high quality, 100% natural and developed from a Canadian –German collaboration to provide optimal results.

 

It is also eco-friendly, and meets the strick requirements set out by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).

How to Dry Brush

Dry brushing is performed before showering (on dry skin), and should be followed with an antioxidant/vitamin-rich cleanser and nutrient oil or moisturizer.

Always brush towards your heart.

Legs:  Begin at your feet and brush upwards using small strokes.

Arms: Start at your hands and brush upwards.

Stomach: Work gently in a clockwise motion.

 

We prefer to use the brush on its own on dry skin. After dry brushing wash away impurities and nourish the skin with the THOYA Laboratoire Antioxidant Gentle Cleansing Gel.

 

Follow up with your THOYA Laboratoire Nutrient Oil for a smooth and glowing skin.
