Step-By-Step Guide To Dry Skin Brushing 

1. It’s best to dry brush first thing in the morning before you shower. Start with light pressure until you’re used to the sensation, then move on to firmer strokes. It’s best to avoid your face as most people’s facial skin is too sensitive, in addition to breasts and genitalia.

2. Use a natural (not synthetic) bristled wooden brush or a loofah as a second choice. Make sure it has a long handle to reach the back.

3. Work from left to right, which is the natural direction when massaging the body.

4. Start with the soles of your feet, use swift upward strokes and brush from the feet, up the legs, working towards your heart.

5. Once you’ve covered your lower body, move to your hands and work up your arms toward your heart in the same manner.

6. Next brush your back, up and down.

7. Now work on your neck and chest, brushing towards the heart.

8. Lastly, brush your abdomen (moving in an anti-clockwise direction to follow the movement of the colon (i.e. right to left).

9. Brush for about three-to-five minutes until your skin is rosy and slightly tingly.

10. Always shower after you dry brush to wash off the dead skin.

11. Keep a separate dry brush for every member of the family, and be sure to periodically wash it.
