How to Use & Frequency

Make sure your skin is dry, hence "dry brushing"
Pick up your brush, start at your feet, all the way at the bottom, and brush upward towards the heart. For your arm, begin at the hands and work upward. Always start from area further away to closer to the center of your body. Don't forget your armpits and inner thighs, that's where the prime lymphatic drainage spots are. If you have the bad habit of crossing your legs while you sit, spend another minute brushing your knee.
Use firm gentle, small strokes upwards, or work in a circular motion. Repeat 2 to 10 times in each section of skin depending how much time you have, overlapping as you go. For the stomach area, work in a counterclockwise pattern. Just go with the flow. Remember to brush your body front and back but avoid the face. Moisturize your skin with body lotion afterwards.
Skin may be slightly pink afterwards that's okay. It should never be red or sting though! Be extra gentle when you brush over sensitive areas like breasts, inner thighs, armpits.
