Make Dry Brushing a New Year’s Goal for Healthy Skin

Looking to start 2022 with improving your wellness? Making self-care a top New Year’s Resolution will provide immediate and lasting health benefits. One body care goal to begin implementing for 2022 is dry skin brushing, healthy treatment for exfoliating skin, stimulating capillary and lymphatic circulation, and promoting skin beauty.


“Dry brushing is one of the best ways to cleanse the skin without removing the protective mantel of acids and oils,” according to Ida Body Care Founder & Creator Vicki Weaver Payne. “It gently and effectively removes the top layer of dead skin cells and deeply cleanses the pores. Dry brushing has been practiced for centuries as a preventative for dry skin and a way to exfoliate the body, thus stimulating skin renewal.”


Dry skin brushing, meaning not in the bath or shower, can change the health of the whole body.  Here are just a few of the benefits:

  • Tightens skin
  • Aids in digestion
  • Reduces cellulite
  • Stimulates circulation
  • Increases cell renewal
  • Clean lymphatic system
  • Removes dead skin
  • Strengthens immune system
  • Improves exchange between cells
  • Soothes and tones skin
  • Stimulates hormones and oil-producing glands
  • Increases relaxation
