Tips and Tricks for Dry Brushing:
Purchase a natural bristle brush with a long handle so can reach all areas of your body.
Always dry skin brush your dry and naked body before you shower or bathe as you will want to wash off the impurities from the skin as a result from the brushing action.
Start with long sweeping strokes starting from the bottom of your feet upwards, and from the hands towards the shoulders, and on the torso in an upward direction towards your heart. Never brush away from your heart. Stroking away from your heart puts extra pressure on the valves within the veins and lymph vessels and can cause ruptured vessels and varicose veins.
Use light pressure in areas where the skin is thin and harder pressure on places like the soles of the feet.
Avoid sensitive areas and anywhere the skin is broken such as areas of skin rash, wounds, cuts, and infections.
It’s best to dry skin brush first thing in the morning. Dry skin brushing can be done once a day, but if you are feeling ill, increasing treatments to twice a day would be beneficial.
Finish up with your regular shower and ending with three hot and cold cycles. That means turning on the water as hot as you can take it for several seconds, then as cold as you can handle it, then hot, then cold for three cycles. End with either hot or cold. This will further invigorate the skin and stimulate blood circulation, bringing more blood to the outer layers of the skin.
Try this for 30 days and see the results for yourself!
