Skin Brushing Dry or in the Shower?


Despite what you may have read elsewhere, skin brushing in the shower is not the recommended way to do it.  This is a process called Dry Skin Brushing – Dry Body Brushing in most parts of the world.  Getting your skin wet in the shower changes its texture and does not accomplish the same goal you are looking for.

The skin you are brushing is dry, brittle and flaky when it is not moistened.  Once it gets wet, it will tear and adhere as opposed to flaking off.  Skin brushing on wet skin will be damaging if you use the cheapo, standard $7.99 Dry Skin Brush as recommended.

Also, the exfoliation aspect of Dry Skin Brushing is only one of the benefits of Dry Skin Brushing.  The other benefits below the outer layer of skin will not come through as well if you are in the shower for multiple reasons.  A wet brush does not stimulate your body in the same way as a dry one.

If you absolutely cannot tolerate dry skin brushing you can try using a loofa or rough washcloth in the shower or dry, but you will not have the same result.  You should make it your goal to transition to Dry Skin Brushing as soon as you are able to tolerate it.  I think it’s better to start something though, so get going as soon as you can.
