Dry body brushing - A word from Miranda Kerr

Cellulite and untoned skin is a problem that plagues many of us women and can be difficult to eradicate, even with a consistent healthy diet and dedicated exercise regime. Many expensive treatments target women's woes of skin rippling but the market is still divided on whether these services are worth the time and expense. A simple and affordable method to improving skin firmness is dry body brushing, which stimulates circulation and helps to flush out toxins. The key to using a body brush is using it on dry skin, focussing on the legs and buttocks, using motions towards your heart, which is key to flushing out the toxins correctly.

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:
  1. Begin by standing.
  2. 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.
  3. Brush over your knees twice to remove a built up of dry skin. Knees can also hold toxins and fluid.
  4. Vigorously brush your buttocks in an upward motion and concentrate on your upper thigh in this movement.
  5. 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.
