To Use: The sisal brush is supposed to be used dry. The fibers tend to soften when they are wet and that wouldn’t do much on your skin. When dry, the bristles are firm and sticking upwards. It may seem prickly at first but the skin will soon get used to it.
When using the sisal brush, the best method is to perform strokes that go upward and towards the lymph nodes in your body, such as the groin, armpits or the base of the neck. Also, start from the left going to the right. This is the natural direction used in most massages to get the most benefits. After every dry brushing session, it is crucial to get into some sort of hydrotherapy. It can be a shower, a steam bath, a body mask, or a massage using an organic moisturizer. A bath is a great way to remove dry skin and any dirt that the sisal brush has sloughed off.
