Dry Brushing Technique
- Perform the massage on dry skin, preferably in the morning before the shower. It will give you a boost of energy.
- Start at your feet and move upward with long gentle stroke motions towards the heart, walking through each area 2-3 times.
- After you have brushed your feet, legs, and midsection, brush your arms. It would be best if you brushed upward towards your armpits, where one of the largest lymphatic nodes is.
- Do not put too much pressure on the brush. The process should be pleasant. Make sure you begin the process by getting to know your skin first and giving it a look to see if there are any sensitive areas to avoid.
- After dry brushing, take a shower.
- After the shower, hydrate your skin with healthy, high-quality ingredients, your pores are open, and the skin will absorb the product more readily.
- Massage 2-3 times a week.
Dry brushing benefits
Dry brushing for cellulite
The key to getting rid of cellulite is consistency. Dry brushing helps promote circulation and lymphatic drainage, which reduces the appearance of cellulite and prevents new cellulite from forming. Over time you can see a difference if dry brushing regularly.
Lymphatic drainage and toxin removal
The dry brushing technique stimulates the lymph flow, our body's natural filtering system that helps get rid of toxins and infections.
Unlike the heart, the lymphatic system does not have a pump to push it around the body, so the lymph relies primarily on our body's muscle action and movement to maintain its fluid movement.
Dry brushing improves skin appearance through exfoliation by removing the top layers of the skin, dull and dead skin cells, revealing healthy skin cells, and leaving the skin soft and smooth.
Increasing blood circulation and energy
Dry brushing has a stimulating effect and wakes you up with a natural energy boost. The massage stimulates the blood flow circulation and brings more oxygen to the skin surface.
When should you not dry brush?
A dry brush for the body is not suitable for the face. Dry brushing is unsuitable for sensitive, irritated, inflamed skin and skin prone to eczema, psoriasis, or other severe skin conditions. If you have an open wound on your skin, avoid this area.
