  • It is best done in the morning, just after waking up, on dry skin.

  • Do not brush too hard or for too long. Brush gently and don't push yourself to the point of irritating your skin.
  • Make sure your skin is dry and that you don't have any products or lotions on it.
  • Start on the soles of your feet and work your way up your legs, using circular motions in the direction of your heart. For the abdomen, use counterclockwise circular motions.
  • Gently brush the breasts and stay away from the nipples.
  • Ideally, brushing should last two to five minutes each day. Be patient, in a few weeks you will see how your skin has transformed.
  • It is not an instant remedy, as it needs at least 3 to 6 months of regular brushing to see excellent results. If you want, from time to time, throw a handful of sea salt on the brush, so you increase this kind of dry exfoliation.
  • When you're done, take a shower to remove all the dead skin.
  • After you get out of the shower, dry your skin and massage it with natural skin oils and creams.
