Dry-brushing is one of those rare things that feels just as good when you do it yourself as when someone else does it to you, and it’s incredibly easy to incorporate into your routine.

-increasing circulation and energy
-helping to break down cellulite
Most experts recommend dry-brushing in the morning, rather than before bed, because they believe it has energizing qualities.
Some people use the brush on its own; others put a bit of body oil on the brush before they use it. “Shower before skin-brushing if you’re using an oil on the brush,” says Marrone. “If not, shower after skin brushing, then apply oil or lotion.”
It’s fantastic to do in conjunction with a sauna or steam, too.
To do it yourself, start at your feet and brush upward toward the heart. Similarly, when you start on your arms, begin at the hands and work upward.
Use firm, small strokes upward, or work in a circular motion. For the stomach, work in a clockwise direction. Harsh exfoliation is never the point; be sure not to press too hard or use a brush that’s too stiff. “Any kind of brushing or exfoliation should be gentle and should never break the skin.
