In order for body care at home to bring not only plea­sure, but also ben­e­fits, it is impor­tant to fol­low clear rules. We have col­lect­ed the most com­mon mis­takes that girls make dur­ing a dry brush mas­sage. Test your­self and find out what can spoil the effec­tive­ness of anti-cel­lulite mas­sage.

1. Incorrect selection of stiffness

If you are just get­ting start­ed with dry mas­sage, choose a brush with soft­er boar bris­tles. For max­i­mum effect, use brush­es with nat­ur­al cac­tus fibers. Which one suits you? Find out here.

2. Massage with a dry brush in the evening

Imag­ine that you decide to dance zum­ba before going to bed. After such a warm-up, you def­i­nite­ly won’t be able to fall asleep. Dry­brush­ing is the same: active move­ments with a mas­sage brush accel­er­ate the lymph, improve blood cir­cu­la­tion. The result — you are full of strength and vig­or. A suit­able effect for the morn­ing, so trans­fer the care pro­ce­dure to the first half of the day.

3. Brush massage from top to bottom

If you have cho­sen move­ments from the shoul­ders to the hands and from the hips to the feet, swelling will not keep you wait­ing. To pre­vent this from hap­pen­ing, it is bet­ter to brush with smooth straight move­ments or clock­wise from the bot­tom up towards the heart.

4. Too much pressure when using a massage brush

The skin may react to sud­den move­ments with a burn­ing sen­sa­tion and become very red. The opti­mal dura­tion of the pro­ce­dure is 5 min­utes, each time add 30 sec­onds. So it will be eas­i­er for the body to get used to the new care.

5. Wrong choice of massage area

Avoid con­tact with lymph nodes — armpits, chest and heart area, popliteal fos­sa, groin. Dry mas­sage should have a heal­ing effect and not harm the body.

6. Use a brush during the shower

Wood­en brush with nat­ur­al bris­tles will not sur­vive such treat­ment. When in con­tact with water, the base of the tree can deform and crack. Use the brush only for its intend­ed pur­pose — for dry body mas­sage. But after dry­brush­ing, water pro­ce­dures will not inter­fere: it acts on the body like a peel­ing. Rinse off dead skin par­ti­cles, apply cream, oil or lotion.

Don’t repeat these mis­takes, fol­low the instruc­tions and your skin will thank you. Take care of your skin in an envi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly way with nat­ur­al prod­ucts from ROPIN.
