Dry Brushing Benefits!

If you have not heard of this before listen up!

Dry brushing benefits: eliminates cellulite, cleanses the lymphatic structure, eliminate dead skin coatings, makes the immune system stronger, stimulates the hormone and oil producing glands; tightens the skin to prevent aging, makes the quality of your muscles better, stimulates circulation, enhances the performance of the nervous system, aids digestion and most of all, it is considered the simplest and cheapest way to rejuvenate your skin!

Dry skin brushing is simple, quick and the benefits can be seen over a few weeks or even a few days.
1. You will need a dry skin brush!
2. Ideally dry skin brush once a day before showering or bathing.  It is invigorating so it is better to use in the morning than at night!
3. Dry skin brushing should be done on dry skin. Wet skin reduces the effectiveness of the brushing.
4. Normally start from the soles of your feet and work up your legs to the buttocks and stomach, then do the back and abdomen. Next brush up your hands and arms.
5. It is not normal to brush the face however the scalp and neck can be brushed. A soft brush or flannel may be used for the face.
6. ALWAYS skin brush towards the heart, except for the stomach brush clockwise on your stomach to aid digestion!
7. You should brush over the same area a few times (3 to 5) and the whole body should only take few minutes. The pressure used should be between gentle and firm, not a vigorous harsh pressure. Use lighter strokes around the breast area but do not brush over the nipples.
8. Wash the brush with every use with water and antibacterial soap and allow to dry. It is best to have a brush for each person
Extra care for cellulite: Although skin brushing may help, consider using your hands or a cellulite massage tool to also massage the cellulite. A massage oil may also be used, this should be massaged into the skin using a moderate pressure with circular movements, once or twice a day. The oil will spread more easily onto damp skin.
