The Benefits

  • Sloughs away dead skin cells helping to remove any barriers and cleanses the pores which will improve the appearance of the skin a softer and healthier natural glow.
  • If you tend to have excess weight accumulating in one place ie, hips and thighs, It helps with continued use to deploy and aids to the even distribution of fat deposits giving your limbs a much smoother, and firmer, look and feel. Helping with for example, the dreaded cellulite.
  • It cleanses the lympathatic system and boost blood circulation by stimulating muscle contraction to help the lymph and blood flow. Your lympathatic system deals with all the toxins we encounter in our day to day lives: In the food we eat, the air we breathe. Dry skin brushing helps the lympathatic to become more efficient at eliminating the toxins and detoxify your body.

What you will need: A dry skin brush preferably with detachable handle and natural bristle, it should be firm but not too hard.

The How: You will start at your feet and using long, slow, firm but not too hard, flowing movements brushing towards the top of your body. The skin on your stomach is softer than the skin on your legs and forearms. Your skin should be left dry and preferably be naked. Sit or stand in a position that gives you access to all parts of your body. e.g. on the edge of the bath with one foot up on the toilet seat if possible. All strokes should be towards your heart as brushing away may cause faintness or disrupt the normal flow.

1.Place the detachable head of the brush (if you have one, otherwise the brush) on your ankle and firmly brush up to the knee. Repeat until you have covered the entire calf and shin several times.
2.When you have cover the entire leg, move up to your knee. The strokes should reach from the knee to the top of the thigh and over the buttocks.
3.Now brush both arms, from the wrist to the shoulder. The neck and shoulder area should be treated with lots of TLC as the flesh here is very delicate. Work from the top of the arm, up and over the shoulder and gently up the neck to your hairline and chin.
4. Using circular strokes in a clockwise direction brush the stomach area gently.

Heads up

5.Unfortunately dry brushing is not recommended for people with sensitive skin or skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and excessive dry skin, as it can aggravate the condition—and also cause often painful irritation.
