Japanese Body Brush
The Japanese Body Brush is a medium bristle suitable for beginners to dry brushing.
It is made with high quality Sisal fibre from the Agave plant, cut on a curve to hug the body as you brush. Dry body brushing is a traditional health practice for exfoliating dry skin, improving lymphatic drainage, stimulating circulation, reducing ingrown hairs and the appearance of cellulite.
Always use a plant bristle skin brush.
Choose a bristle strength to suit your skin concern and/or condition.
Perform on dry skin only.
Generally stroke upward in one motion.
Brush strokes repeated 7 times per area of the body.
Adjust pressure to your comfort levels.
Best to follow brushing with some form of hydrotherapy ie shower or bath.
Work from left to right side of the body.
Always nourish your skin after your shower with your chosen body oil.
Never skin brush over-active inflammation e.g. open wounds, inflamed sores, varicose veins, sunburnt skin.
Never skin brush during an active cancer state or over enlarged lymph nodes.
If pregnant seek doctors advice first before skin brushing.
If an allergic reaction appears, stop brushing.
Approximate Length Short 24cm / Long 41cm
Brush Care Spritz with the Bodecare Tea Tree spray after each use to eliminate bacteria from the bristles and once a week wash in warm soapy water and leave in a well ventilated area to dry, preferably the sun. Allow the brush bristles to dry completely before using again. Do not leave in a damp area, the bristles will mildew.
You may experience some bristle fall out when first using the brush, this is normal and will subside after the first wash. Overly rough usage of the brush may cause more fall out from bristle damage. (so be kind to your brush, they are natural plant bristles)
