Dry Brushing with The Prana Ionic Body Brush!

Press Sample

Have you heard of dry brushing? I had heard the term but didn’t know anything about it and then Prana Brush contacted me and their brush changed my life. I know what you’re thinking “uh, isn’t that a little dramatic?” Yes, it is BUT when a product can improve your health, it is life changing and the Prana Dry Brush has many health benefits.

What is Dry Brushing?

Dry brushing has incredible health benefits and is widely recommended by health experts. Dry brushing detoxifies the body, improves circulation, eliminates dead skin cells, exfoliates the skin, improves skin tone, aids digestion, reduces and prevents cellulite, and increases energy and well-being. In addition, dry brushing stimulates the lymphatic system, which helps eliminate toxins and pathogens that can cause inflammation and illness.

Why Prana?

The Prana ionic body brush $44.50 is made with extra-fine ion-charged copper bristles which naturally create negative ions that protect your body from free radicals and have numerous other health benefits. In addition, the molecular composition of the unique bristles encourages the direct and immediate absorption of negative ions into your skin which increases the benefits of dry brushing, including the speed of detoxification. The brush also features an outer ring of bristles made from beautiful all-natural and ethically-sourced boar hair.

The Prana ionic body brush (also commonly known as an ‘energy brush’ or a ‘copper wool brush’) is a beautiful work of art. Each ionic body brush is handmade with pride by skilled artisans using traditional techniques from the highest-quality and sustainably-harvested beechwood, which is then beautifully smoothed and finished with natural wax.

How to Use

Most important, do NOT use with soap, water or oil. Prana recommends using your brush on a daily basis to detoxify the body, eliminate dead skin cells, stimulate the lymph nodes, aid digestion, and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Brush your body before bathing or showering. Brush rhythmically with very light, smooth gentle strokes towards the heart. Start by brushing the soles of your feet and then work your way up and inward. This is the direction in which lymph flows in your body so brushing this direction will have the most beneficial effect on your lymphatic system, which is responsible for detoxifying your body.  Brushing in this direction will also help stimulate the nervous system and increase blood circulation.

In general, it should take about 3-5 minutes to brush your entire body. After brushing and showering (or bathing) apply lotion or oil to moisturize your skin.

My Experience

I admit I thought the brush might hurt if it was going to its job, but I was SO wrong! The bristles feel soft but you can apply more pressure to the brush if you want a deeper scrub. Just make sure to adjust the speed and pressure in order to match the sensitivity of your skin.

When using for the first time, I recommend brushing in the shower before you turn on the water because if you have dry skin like me, the dry flakes will be flying. After brushing and showering I use Farmhouse Fresh Blushing Agave Body Oil reviewed here and my skin feels incredible–so soft and smooth! I like this type of exfoliation better scrubs and I really feel it’s more effective. Since I haven’t been using the brush for long, I have yet to see the detox benefits but I excited for them. Tip: drinking plenty of water after brushing can greatly enhance the detoxification effect of the brushing process. Copper is naturally anti-bacterial, so cleaning your ionic body brush is easy:  brush the bristles with a dry cloth or tap the brush with the bristles pointed down on a washable surface.

Bottom Line: The Prana Ionic Dry Brush is fabulous for dry skin and keeps my skin really soft and smooth. I have even noticed improved circulation and the improvement in my skin is worth it alone! Highly recommended!

  1. Happy I found this, I got contacted about a similar brush- not this company and I was just on the fence about to because they never gave the detail on what this brush can do for your overall health. I’m def intrigued now and I have eczema and winter and I never get along. I think this could help me out and it’s like a nice massage before shower and bed to really calm down from the day.
