This is how you should dry brush your skin
When it comes to the amount of pressure you should be applying, it’s important to brusher harder in certain areas of the body to promote circulation. However, it’s just as important not to press too hard as you may aggravate or harm your skin. “Any kind of brushing or exfoliation should be gentle and should never break the skin,” Margo Marroneadds, Co-Founder of The Organic Pharmacy, warned Goop. “I’ve tried skin brushes that are so hard, they cannot be used due to the damage they do. I chose medium-soft cactus bristles for our skin brush for gentleness; the skin should never be scratched or damaged.”
If you have sensitive skin, you’re likely to be more prone to irritation. Be careful when selecting your brush, and if irritation continues, discontinue dry brushing.
