As well as exfoliating and cleansing the skin, dry brushing is generally believed to help improve blood circulation; stimulate the nervous and lymphatic systems, and encourage relaxation.
Depending on the sensitivity of your skin, use your dry body brush 2-3 times a week to exfoliate the skin on your body before cleansing. Do not use on your face.
Start at your feet and move up the body, towards the heart, in large, circular clockwise motions.
You can use more pressure in less sensitive areas like the knees and elbows, and less pressure elsewhere. The arms can be dry brushed after treating the torso and décolletage. To avoid abrasion or damage to the skin do not brush continually in the same place.
Cleaning your body brush
- Clean your body brush regularly, ideally after each use.
- Start by tapping the bristles in the sink or onto a washable surface to remove any dead skin.
- Fill the sink or a bowl with a disinfectant cleanser such as tea tree oil, or a disinfectant liquid soap. Only add enough water to submerge the bristles are submerged in water; avoid getting the handle wet.
- Gently move the brush in the water to coat all of the bristles for approximately five minutes. Remove the brush, set to one side and refresh the water.
- Move the bristles gently in the water once more to rinse.
- Shake out any excess water and leave on a clean dry towel until completely dry before storing. You can use a hairdryer if you wish to speed up the drying process.
- We recommend you replace your body brush every 6 months.
