april's shine: day 5, dry brushing
Today I was inspired to talk to you about dry brushing.
I use a big douche brush, with natural powerful hairs (it has to brush, not caress:-D) and with a long handle (that's how you get to some places, even if you did not go to yoga for a while..).
I put a few drops of lavender essential oil (use whatever you fancy) on one of the hands (left in my case) and I first brush my palm until the oil dissolves in and between the hairs of the brush.
With that, I brush my whole body (naked, please do not attempt this fully clothed).
I begin with the hand on both sides, going in the direction of the heart.
After my arms, I do the torso - also in the direction of the heart.
I do the front first and than the back.
I end it with the legs, from the toes up and then the buttocks:-)
You can do whatever variation of this you can think of: some people like to begin with the toes..
frequency: every day;
when: I do it in the evening, before I go to sleep; you could also use it before of the shower sometimes. Or instead. I'm just saying:-)
why it's good for you: in no time your skin will feel as soft as a baby's buttocks. You will also start loving your body more and be more conscious about it, even those wobbly bits..
If you are a man, maybe you do not want the skin of a baby's buttocks. I totally understand that.
In this case, do it for Baloo:-) I am quite curious as to what you will think about this.. Will you be willing to try it:?-) Please let me know:-)
The thing is, we all have dead skin coming to the surface,
This massage helps your body rejuvenate and it is a verrrrryyyyy niiiice massage.
When I do not do it, I miss it a lot.
where I learned it from: this is also one of those things I must've read in a few places before I decided to try it.. I also probably tried it a few separate times before it became a habit.
I love it now and I wholeheartedly recommend it to you.
