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.
