Mamina Turegano, MD is a triple board-certified dermatologist, internist, dermatopathologist, and tiktoker. In a popular series, she shares health and wellness tips and tricks from her 72-year-old Japanese mother that fans can’t get enough of. In part 7 of the viral series, Mamina’s mother shares the anti-aging benefits of dry brushing!

Dry brushing is an ancient practice that has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine and in many cultures around the world, including Japan, to improve skin health and overall well-being. It involves using a natural-bristle brush to massage the skin in a circular motion. This practice is said to help exfoliate the skin, stimulate circulation, reduce the appearance of cellulite, increase skin glow/radiance, and invigorate and energize the body. It can also help to reduce stress and promote lymphatic drainage.

To dry brush, start at your feet and work your way up your body in a circular motion. Begin brushing the left leg first, then left arm, then the torso, and repeat the routine on the right side of the body, beginning with the leg first. Be sure to brush in an upward motion towards your heart and use gentle pressure and avoid any areas that are sensitive or irritated. Work your way up your body, brushing each area for a few minutes. Mamina’s mother recommends spending about 2-3 minutes every morning doing the routine.

Happy brushing!
