Consider a dry brush massage as a trip to the salon. There are few contraindications in this case: the skin should not have external injuries like wounds or scratches, because a brush with natural bristles still injures the skin. It is also not recommended for skin diseases like psoriasis or urticaria.

Brushes have varying degrees of rigidity. If you have sensitive or dry skin, then for a start it is better to stay on a milder version. In any case, the first time, most likely, you will be a little painful - you have to endure until the skin gets used to it.

Massage with a brush, firstly, improves blood circulation and lymph drainage - after it, the skin may burn slightly. Another brush exfoliates dead cells, and in the long run makes the skin more elastic and supple. However, the bristles act only on the surface of the skin, which means that it can not fight cellulite directly.

You can start a dry massage course with a few minutes, gradually increasing the time and allowing the skin to get used to. In circular movements from the fingertips to the heart, you can walk along the legs, hips, buttocks, hands. On problem areas it is worth staying longer. It is better to massage the stomach and chest not so intensively, and the region of the heart should be avoided. It is especially pleasant to use a brush before a morning shower - this procedure invigorates and cheers you up.

Brushes are now sold in many stores, mine from BodyShop. Preferred specimens with natural bristles - for example, cactus fiber. And remember that visible changes are possible only with a complex effect: for example, if you come from training, rub yourself in the shower with a brush every time, and then do not eat a pie, the result will be noticeable.
