So how does it work?

Your skin, the largest organ in the human body is an organ of elimination. One third of your body’s toxins are excreted through the skin and dry brushing helps to unclog pores and excrete toxins that become trapped in the skin.

To get started, follow the simple steps below:

  1. Purchase a natural (not synthetic) bristle brush with a long handle so can reach all areas of your body.
  2. Get naked and stand in a bathtub or tiled surface to catch the falling skin. (It’s a bit gross, I know.)
  3. Begin brushing by starting at your feet and moving in long sweeping motions toward your heart. Always brush toward your heart.
  4. Brush several times in each area, overlapping as you go.
  5. Take care as you brush over more sensitive areas, like breasts. Your skin will become less sensitive the more you dry brush.
  6. Once you’ve brushed your entire body, jump in the shower. (I like to alternate between the hottest water temperature I can tolerate and the coldest. This stimulates blood circulation, bringing more blood to the top layers of the skin.)
  7. After getting out of the shower, pat dry skin and apply a natural fruit oil like rose hip or coconut oil.
  8. Continue to dry brush your entire body every day. Twice a day is recommended for best results. Remember to clean your brush with soap and water once a week. Leave to dry in a clean, sunny spot to avoid any mildew accumulation on your brush.

Try this for 30 days and see the results for yourself!
