Transform your body: Regular dry brushing is believed to significantly reduce the appearance of cellulite
And while it won’t break up fat, with regular use it’s thought that dry body brushing can help remove the waste that gets trapped between fat cells (aka cellulite) creating a more even, less dimpled skin surface.
‘Has made a difference to the cellulite on the back of my thighs,’ wrote one customer who rated the body brush five stars. ‘And my skin has been noticeably smoother after a month or so. I use it about three times a week, so consistency definitely is key to seeing changes.’
‘I wanted to show my skin a bit of love now I had some time during lockdown,’ another reviewer wrote. ‘I had read about dry body brushing but never tried it. I have to say it’s quite effective.
‘It is a little sore, but a quick body brush and application of body lotion and my skin felt much smoother to the touch.’
The oval wooden brush boasts a hand loop and high-quality natural boar bristles to boost circulation and create a stimulating and energising massage. Fitting neatly in the palm of your hand, it’s easy to use and incorporate into your skincare routine.

Gripping the brush firmly, sweep it from your feet and brush upwards in the direction of your heart (this is where your lymph system drains). Use light, quick flicks, or circulation motions with medium pressure all over your body.
But easy does it; dry brushing should never break the skin or hurt, so don’t press too hard. And if you’re skin looks pink after brushing, that’s a good thing! The circulation has bought fresh, nutrient-rich blood to the surface of the skin – this has the added benefits of making skin look more toned.
