Dry Brushing is a vital part of your detoxifying skin ritual. Sweep away dead skin and awaken your senses. Plant-based sisal fibers buff away the old, prepping skin for optimal hydration.
How to Use
Use on dry skin. Starting at the feet, brush upwards towards the heart in small, gentle strokes. Click here to watch our mini tutorial. Tap the brush after use to remove debris. Wash through the bristles once a week with warm soapy water, rinse well and air dry naturally with the bristles facing downwards. Do not immerse the brush in water.

Dare to Bare with Dry Brushing
There’s nothing like an everyday body care ritual to make you glow from head to toe. Enter dry brushing, the light touch self-massage that gets energy flowing to awaken and stimulate the senses while gently exfoliating to smooth and invigorate skin. Dry brushing uses a natural-bristle, sisal body brush in soft strokes on bare skin. We love our plant-based, organic OSEA Body Brush, used in the video tutorial above, for an eco-friendly option.
What’s the best way to dry brush? We recommend brushing bare, dry skin, so just before or after a shower is perfect. You can luxuriate in this ritual or move quickly for a 5-minute refresher. Check out our step-by-step guide below.
Start with soft strokes on the bottom of one foot. Dry brushing shouldn’t hurt, so easy on the pressure. With short strokes move to the top of the foot, and continue up the leg from ankle to thigh covering front and back. When you reach the hip, repeat on the other leg.
After covering both legs, brush upwards from the hips to the low back. Spend some time on the sacrum to invigorate the organs in the low back. Continue to brush up the back as far as you can comfortably reach.
Brush gently upwards from the belly to the chest, then chest to clavicle.
Once you’ve reached the clavicle, pause for a mindful breath and pass the brush over fingers and the back of one hand for a few strokes. Brush the palm and move up the arm from wrist to shoulder covering front and back. When you reach the shoulder, repeat on the other arm.
To end your dry brushing ritual, gently brush downwards from the chin and jawline down the front of the neck towards the heart. Move to the back of the neck, brushing down from the hairline. Bonus: this is a great way to prep for gua sha if you want to extend your moment of self-care!
Your skin is smoothed and ready to receive hydration. Indulge in a three step moisturizing protocol to seal your practice of self-honoring. Allow our antioxidant rich Undaria Algae Oil to melt into freshly exfoliated skin. Follow with our mineral forward Anti-Aging Body Balm for a silky finish. Lock in the hydration with our nourishing Ocean Lotion and enjoy the glow.
