Miranda Kerr advocates dry body brushing daily; “It promotes movement of the lymphatic system, improves circulation, and leaves your skin feeling softer and smoother”.
How to Dry Body Brush:
- Begin by standing.
- Start by brushing left to right leg, which is naturally relaxing for the body. Use upward motions, in one clean stoke. Brush from ankle to calf, then from knee to upper thigh.
- Brush over your knees twice to remove a built up of dry skin. Knees can also hold toxins and fluid.
- Vigorously brush your buttocks in an upward motion and concentrate on your upper thigh in this movement.
- Clockwise circular motions around the stomach help improve circulation.
Remember to use a pressure that feels comfortable and do not brush over inflamed skin. After your shower, make sure to moisturize thoroughly, as dry body brushing will eliminate your dead skin cells.
