Get your body ready for Summer with this Dry Brush Skin Ritual! No more cellulite!!


One effective way to get rid of cellulite and get swimsuit ready is to do a weekly “dry brushing ritual”. It is a bit like a detox for your body. Dry brushing improves circulation in the body and stimulate the lymphatic system, which in turns helps eliminate toxic waste build-up and stagnation in the body thus improving the appearance of cellulite. If you work in-front of a computer all day, this will wake up your body in a good way!


What you will need: A boar brush with a short or long handle.


The best time to do a dry brush is before you step into the shower or bath. The two most important things to remember is:


  1. Start on the left side of the body.
  2. Always brush towards the heart.


Start with the bottom of your left foot and brush from toe to heel. The brushing action will stimulate the reflexology points that are at the bottom of your feet and that correspond to the meridians in your body. Move up your calf and thigh; all the way up your leg and hips, doing long brushing strokes towards to the heart. Do both front and back of leg. When the leg and hips are done, move on to your left palm, again stimulating the reflexology points in the hand. Move up the arm making sure to include your arm pit where there are many lymph nodes. Brush gently in circular motion around your breast and then downwards on your chest to the heart. When you are done with your left side, you will do the exact same thing on your right. Then repeat the whole thing 2 more times so that you have done it in total 3 times.This should take you about 5-10 minutes.


When you are done with your dry brushing ritual you can finish with a nice hot shower or bath and you will notice amazing new skin when you get out and put on your favorite body oil or lotion. Less cellulite and wonderful silky soft skin.


I learned how to this dry brush ritual as a teen-ager growing up in Denmark from my mom who had the most silky soft skin ever!
