Nothing against lotion just that I’m swapping it with a more budget friendly and sustainable alternative.


This week, I started practicing dry brushing which some wellness enthusiast claim as a way to detoxify our lymphatic system, improve blood circulation, exfoliate dead skin cells, unclog pores, reduce cellulite, and encourage natural collagen production. 

While there isn't enough scientific evidence to verify all these claims, I see no harm in giving dry brushing a try. 

In an interview by SELF with Melissa Kanchanapoomi Levin, M.D., an NYC dermatologist and founder of Entière Dermatology, dry brushing is an effective exfoliation technique due to the increase in friction.

“When you exfoliate on dry skin, the friction is increased as opposed to when the skin is wet. When the friction is increased, exfoliation is more effective.”

With that in mind, aside from ditching lotions for good, maybe I can also start giving up body scrubs. 🤔

How to Dry Brush

I first learned about dry brushing from YouTuber Sustainably Vegan. If you are also curious and want to test it out yourself, below is a great infographic detailing the process. 


I did see some improvement in my skin after a few days of dry brushing, but I still put on some form of moisturizer on areas that need extra care.

I choose Human Nature’s Sunflower Beauty Oil as a lotion swap because it’s all-natural and locally made. But aside from this, it also has a lot of other uses. I can use it for my hair, face, body, brows, cuticles, and so much more.
