Dry brushing is simply brushing your absolutely dry skin (entire body except your face) in a motion towards the heart to support skin renewal, stimulate the lymphatic system (which in turn helps the immune, nervous and digestive systems), aid in the removal of toxins, exfoliate and give you a sense of well-being. Dry brushing is one of the easiest techniques you can add to your daily regime for the maximum benefits!
Dry brushing should be practiced each day, typically in the morning (before you shower.)
Your skin is your largest organ, an organ of elimination which also acts as a barrier to the environment. We shed dead cells and toxins each day. However, as we age, our bodies become less effective in shedding outer layers of dead skin cells. And toxins in the air and our environment also prey on our skin.
** Your tool should have natural bristles only. Sublime Beauty ® offers 2 brushes: the popular Portable Brush in pouch – the one featured in Glamour Magazine (perfect for daily use but easy to take on any trip); and the long-handled brush (but sorry, it is often out of stock).
** Most people like to dry brush every morning (though will do so at night, or even twice a day.) It is best to do this standing in your shower or tub so that dry cells can be washed down the drain.
** The first and most important thing to remember is this: you should always brush in the direction of your heart! Work outward to in (i.e. from hands to shoulder or feet to thighs).
The face is more delicate and requires a smaller, more delicate brush and a slightly different technique. We lay out the differences between body and face brushing, and HOW TO face brush as well.
Our new Face Brushes are now available, too!
We designed this brush so it is easy to use at home daily, but you can also take it on trips, vacations, weekends away or tuck it into your bag for the gym! Think of Skin Brushing as a daily activity for well-being, and you want to make sure you can take it with!
Natural Phytoceramides replenish the ceramides in skin lost with age. On the Dr. Oz show, plastic surgeons said taking Phytoceramides is like getting a natural facelift. It improves barrier-protection, moisture-retention and plumpness of skin throughout your body!
We put together a kit of the brush and a bottle of Phytoceramides. Get benefits to your skin from the outside AND inside!
If you have cellulite, you may want to go through a specific and direct treatment for 1 to 3 months. This includes massage of a special formulation of natural products known to attack those fat cells, helping to dissolve them. It will also strengthens and smooth the skin to fight dimpling.
Our Cellulite Whisperer® Gel dissolves toxins and supports the skin, and is massaged into the skin. It is followed by Cellulite Whisperer® Lotion that smoothes and aids the skin while continuing to work at the toxins. Most of the ingredients are organic. You can read more here at our Cellulite Whisperer site.
Skin brushing before these treatments is a good practice, AND daily skin brushing is a good maintenance practice once you have reduced the effects and completed your treatments. Keep it up!
