Dry brushing stimulates the nervous and lymphatic systems and the oil and hormonal glands in your body while relieving stress on your kidneys. As blood flow increases and toxins release, your skin will firm.
- Dry skin brush
- Soft towel
- Natural oil (olive oil, almond oil, coconut oil)
Dry brush your entire body before you shower. Brush bottom up or top down with long, smooth strokes directed towards the heart. The process releases toxins and removes dead skin, which you can wash off in the shower.
Brush your skin in the morning. Toxins tend to accumulate during the night, and dry brushing will improve your energy and overall wellbeing during the day. Brushing your entire body will take about 15 minutes, and should be done once daily. An additional daily dry brushing can focus on areas of the skin that need firming.
Follow your skin brushing with hot and cold cycles of water which stimulates the skin and blood circulation. At the end of your shower, turn the water to hot, but not so hot that you burn. Allow it to cover your body for a few seconds. Then turn the water on cold for a few seconds. Repeat 3 cycles.
Use a soft towel and dry your skin thoroughly after bathing. Apply a natural oil to your skin. To firm your skin, the best choices are olive oil, almond oil or coconut oil.
To tighten skin, you will have to keep a regular dry brushing routine for at least 5 months.
