How To Use: Dry Brushing: As the name implies, you always start on dry skin. The best time to dry brush before a bath or shower. Start gently 2x per week in and allow your skin to get used to it. As your skin adjusts, you can do it every day if you like.
Dry brushing can be done before or after a bath or shower. Just be sure your skin and brush are dry.
1st Step: Begin at your feet with light pressure moving in small circular motions brush in upward strokes toward your heart to encourage lymph flow to the body’s lymph ducts. Move up to your ankles, calves, thighs, and buttocks. Always work in slow movements.
2nd Step: When you reach your torso area move in a circular clockwise motion to aid in digestion.
