Dry Skin Brushing

If you are looking for a way to reduce cellulite, increase your energy levels and improve your skin tone, then Dry Skin Brushing is for you!

I was introduced to this technique in my 20’s when reading a book called “Detox Yourself” by Jane Scrivner and have continued to use it most days. Its a great way to start your morning!

How Do You Dry Skin Brush?

  • Buy a natural fibered wooden brush, preferably with a long handle.
  • Undress to your underwear or take all your clothes off.
  • Start brushing upwards and in circular motion from your feet, up your legs, towards the heart.
  • Once you have reached the top of your legs, brush your buttocks in circular motion.
  • Move onto your arms, starting at the top of your hands, onto your wrists, arms and shoulders.
  • Next is the neck and shoulder, then moving down the back.
  • When brushing the stomach area be careful to brush in gentle clockwise strokes so as not to disrupt the digestive system.
  • You must only brush your face with a dry flannel or facial brush as the skin is very sensitive.
  • After brushing, shower and use a natural oil, like coconut oil to moisturise your skin.
  • Continue this process everyday or twice a day to get the best results!

  • The skin is the largest organ of the body. It needs to “breathe” efficiently and eliminate toxins.
  • Your skin tone will be improved as your pores will unclog as the dead skin is exfoliated. 
  • Brushing stimulates blood and lymph circulation by stimulating muscle contraction.
  • Cellulite will reduce as it disperses the toxins from the area affected. 
  • You will feel energised and stimulated by adding this to your morning routine.
  • Your skin will glow and feel softer.
