Ida Body Care 4 Steps

Dry skin brushing is a healthy treatment for exfoliating skin, stimulating capillary and lymphatic circulation and promoting skin beauty. Dry brushing is one of the 4-steps featured in the new clean, vegan, cruelty-free body care line – Ida Body Care.

You have to think of dry skin brushing as another major tool in your beauty toolbox, according to Ida Body Care Founder & Creator Vicki Weaver Payne. “Dry brushing is one of the best ways to cleanse the skin without removing the protective mantel of acids and oils,” she describes. “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 indigestion
  • 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

How to Dry Brush:

Always body brush on dry skin, followed by a shower or bath. As a general guide, start at the feet and ankles working up the body using brushstrokes in one upward motion toward the heart.
