what is body brushing with a dry body brush?
Dry body brushing is a technique used to exfoliate and cleanse your skin, promoting a healthy and glowing appearance. It has excellent health benefits including increased circulation, cellulite reduction, smoother skin and, importantly, body brushing detoxifies the lymphatic system.
how to dry body brush the facial area:
Precautions: Never brush over inflamed areas e.g. open wounds, inflamed sores, varicose veins, sunburnt skin, active cancer states, enlarged lymph nodes.
Face: Use small circular brush strokes, ending the stroke going down (toward the lymph nodes). starting circular strokes at chin and then above lips. To really drain any sinuses or congestion around the eye area, start at side of nose brushing up to eye-brow bone around eye and back to nose. Brush forehead and temples to relieve stress and head pain. Continue the circular strokes down side of face and just under the chin from left to right.
Neck: From left side, at base of neck brush behind the ear, very lightly up to the jaw line and curve down to the collarbone, the point at which the head and neck drain into the lymph nodes. Repeat on right side.
Notes: Perform on Dry Skin only. This will provide the best stimulation and exfoliation. When plant bristles are wet, they go soft and clump together. Generally stroke upward in one movement using light strokes and repeat 7 times. Adjust pressure to your comfort levels. A slight reddening of the skin (erythema) is normal, it is the blood circulation responding to the skin brushing.
dry body brush care:
Spritz with a spray of diluted organic tea tree oil after each dry body brush to reduce risk of bacteria in bristles. Wash with hot soapy water once a week, pad excess water into a towel and leave to dry in a well ventilated area. Allow brush to dry completely before using again. Do not leave in a damp area, the bristles will mildew.
