Body brushing first thing in the morning before you step into the shower or bath is the perfect way to start the day.
- Start on dry skin before jumping in the shower
- Work in gentle circular, upward motions towards the heart, then switch it up to longer, smoother strokes.
- Always begin at the ankles in upwards movements towards the heart - the lymphatic fluid flows through the body towards the heart, so it's important that you brush in the same direction.
- Your back is the only exception to the preceding rule; brush from the neck down to the lower back.
- Slowly make your way up your body from the ankles, move up to the lower legs, thighs, stomach, back and arms. Be cautious of softer and sensitive skin around the chest and breasts, and never brush over inflamed skin, sores, sun-burnt skin, or skin cancer.
After dry brushing your entire body, take a warm shower. Dry off with a towel, preferably in an open area with direct natural light. This is called air bathing! Apply a natural moisturiser or your favourite natural plant oil like our Calming Botanical Face & Body oil.
Dry face brushing is suitable for normal to dry skin, mature skin, topical eczema, psoriasis and those who suffer from open pores. It is also suitable for those with mild breakout and congestion, to help open pores and allow excess sebum to flow naturally from the skin pores, activate blood flow to enhance collagen production to heal skin. However, it is not suitable for skin that has severe pustular activity, cystic acne, significant active lesions, and lots of red inflamed skin. It is best to wait until the skin has healed before trying to dry face brush.
If you are not used to exfoliating the skin on your face you may want to start with dry brushing the face 1-2 per week and build up as your skin gets use to it.
Step 1: Wash your face first: Start with squeaky clean skin, that way you're not opening up all your pores only to clog them with makeup or other irritants.
Step 2: Start at the chin and work your way up: Like with body dry brushing, you should always brush with gentle upward motions. Brush from your chin to your hairline on one side of the face, and then move to the other side. Light, gentle strokes will do the trick. This should not hurt.
Step 3: Finish with a nutrient-rich oil or serum: Feed your skin with a nourishing plant oil or natural moisturiser. The nutrients will absorb deep into those newly opened pores and lock in all the moisture and nutrients.
