This “must-have” tool exfoliates and reduces the appearance of orange-peel skin.
Our skin is a major organ of elimination and detoxification just like the liver, colon and kidneys. It is thought that over 1/3 of your body's daily impurities are excreted through your skin. However, as we get a little older, our skin becomes less efficient at this whole detox/elimination process and less effective at naturally shedding the layers of dead skin cells that clog up the skin's surface.
Body brushing is a fast and very effective way of achieving a smoother, fresher and more vibrant skin with better texture as it sloughs away surface's dead skin cells. It also stimulates sweat and oil glands to work at their optimal best thus increasing the natural moisture in your skin. It increases the blood flow to the upper layers of your skin thus increasing the bounce in your skin. It encourages the flow of the lymph fluid towards the lymph nodes where waste & toxins get transferred to the blood and then eventually eliminated by your body.
Research indicates that body brushing is especially beneficial to those who sit in front of the computer for hours everyday as it is reported to increase positive electromagnetic energy levels and helps to eliminate negative ions.
Most massage therapists recommend brushing on dry skin, pre-shower. The team at Mama Mio has been brushing for years on both dry AND wet skin. Sometimes brushing on wet skin is easier and less scratchy on the skin and you can do it immediately after a bath/shower before toweling dry. It is up to you which one fits into your routine easier because both will give you huge benefits.
Made of natural boar bristles (not nylon!), rubber massage nodules, sustainable bamboo (the brown colored base) and a comfy cotton handle.
Wash your brush in warm water (add a little shampoo if needed) every month and air dry.
It is best done before shower. Do not brush on broken or inflamed skin.
Start at the soles of your feet and work your way up to your calves. Always brush in the direction of your heart which is the natural direction of your lymph system. Use upward strokes. Remember to brush the backs of your knees. Pay special attention to the backs of your thighs or areas where you have cellulite. Before moving onto your upper body, brush your hands and arms, again moving the brush towards your heart. Brush under your arms and paying special attention to the wobbly backs of your upper arms. Then brush your back, as much as you can reach it (or ask your partner for help!). Finally brush your tummy and chest – using clockwise sweeps on your tummy, following the direction of your digestive system.
Adjust the pressure of the brush on different parts of your body so the process feels comfortable. It should be stimulating enough to increase circulation but gentle on your skin. You should see a rosy flush to the areas that you have brushed.
It is best to give a minimum of 3 minutes for this whole body brushing process, ideally 3 times a week.
