Prep Your Bathroom
Dry brush upon awakening in the morning before showering. Dry brush in the shower, or on a towel, in the bathroom to collect dry skin.
General Rules of Thumb
Apply medium pressure so that you can feel the movement, but not scratch the skin.
You always dry brush towards your heart to help get the lymph moving upward. Once you get above the heart, on the neck, move strokes in a downward motion towards the heart.
Feet and Legs
Begin at the feet with long sweeping motions moving towards the heart. Move along each limb on its own, repeating strokes 2-3 times on both the front and the back of the legs.
Use shorter motions when working around joints like knees and elbows
Use light circular, clockwise motions. Repeat 3-4 times at a slow-to-moderate pace.
Starting with the hands make your way upward toward the shoulders. Repeat strokes 2-3 times on both the front and the backs of the arms.
Neck and Heart
Start at the jaw line and very lightly move toward the chest. Repeat strokes 2-3 times on each side. Complete by drawing light circles around the heart.
Shower and Hydrate
Always take a shower post dry brushing to remove dead skin. Hydrate with body oil to ensure your body is moisturized to replenish the new layer on the surface of the skin.
Care: Be sure to change your dry brush every 4-5 months.
I’m a newbie with the whole dry brushing thing but after watching a couple of YouTube tutorials I believe I have it down. This brush is very easy to use and I love that it has a strap so it won’t fall. Although it is hard to reach your back I’d say that’s not the brushes fault rather than having short arms. Overall, I’m satisfied
My first impression of the brushes were that they were smaller than I thought they’d be. However, when using them in my, now daily, skin brushing routine, I find that they are just right. I like the combination of both brushes on my body since on some areas I like a stronger bristle, which is the brush with the handle.
Well made and not too hard
