Daily dry body brushing (DBB) – Your skin is the biggest channel of elimination of toxins as you may know most household dust is dry dead skin cells! This is one of the best ways to eliminate (Desquamate) dry dead skin cells and enhance the renewal of new fresh cells. By repeating this ritual every day, you will encourage healthy detoxification and your skin will feel amazing.
DBB may be more comfortable sitting on a small stool and must be on dry skin before you get into the bath/shower: Start at your ankles and work up the legs in small circular movements, front & back, buttocks, wrists to shoulders, back (with long handle or help from a friend) then abdomen. Work towards the direction of the heart in an anti-clockwise direction.
