Dry Skin Brushing with Bodecare Natural Bristle Brushes

Hello natural beauties how are you? I’ve written about dry brushing before (dry brushing basics and dry brushing for your face) when I discovered some fabulous natural, vegan brushes from Bodecare – one for my face and one for my body. It took me ages to get into it and then after a couple of house moves they disappeared! I was very excited to run into Rebecca from Bodecare at the Sydney Mind Body Spirit Festival last month (before we all got sent inside by Mother Nature). Read on for some simple healthy techniques to make your skin look amazing!

About Rebecca and Bodecare

Rebecca Gaspert, the owner of Bodecare, has been in the beauty industry for decades. She is a makeup artist and qualified Beauty Therapist who has owned 2 award-winning salons, and that is how her dry brushing journey commenced. Many of her clients had skin problems from dry skin to acne which started her on a trajectory that is now Bodecare. Rebecca started dry brushing in 2003 and has never looked back.

What are the benefits of dry brushing?

According to Rebecca, dry brushing:

can improve venous blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, aid in the release of toxins, exfoliate dead skin and reduce ingrown hairs. It can also:

*  Reduce skin conditions such as Psoriasis, Keratosis Pilaris, Eczema and other dry skin conditions.

*  Reduce cellulite

*  Relief of arthritis

*  Increase circulation of scalp

*  Reduce stress

*  Remove bumpy skin

My fave Bodcare brush is the one with the detachable handle called the TAMPICO FSC BODY BRUSH

6 Tips from Rebecca to Kick Start Your Body Brushing

1.  Always use a plant bristle skin brush. Try the tampico body brush with a removable handle for flexibility.


I love the detachable handle on the Tampico body brush. Give it a go if you’re in quiet Covid19 mode.

2.  Perform on dry skin only as this will provide the best stimulation and exfoliation.

3.  Generally stroke upward in one motion. Except for fingers and toes, you can brush back-and-forth between them.

4.  Ensure you use the jute brush for gentle face exfoliation.  Don’t ever use your body brush.  When brushing, use upside-down U-shape brush strokes, pressure on the upward stroke and lightly on the way down.

This is the wonderful jute face brush, I encourage you to try it, it’s really wonderful!


5.  Always use a good quality organic body cream and face moisturiser after your shower, to ensure your skin is kept hydrated and supple. 

6.  Always clean your brush after use. If you do not clean or allow your body brush to dry completely, you are susceptible to spreading bacteria back on your skin when dry body brushing. Simply use a tea tree hydrosol on the bristles after every use of your brush.

Hey while you’re immersed in natural bristles why not try the toothbrushes too? They have won an award!
