Dry brushing is a quick and easy way to spend a few minutes pampering your body before a bath or shower. Although your skin is the largest organ in your body, it is often neglected outside of a quick wash and moisturizing. Dry brushing takes skincare to a whole new level, in just minutes a day.

Many people also experience increased energy.
