Dry Brushing 101; The Benefits of Dry Brushing Pre-Op
After contemplating and researching your surgeon, you have finally decided on your procedure, right?!?!?
You have opted for #Lipo360 and possibly a #bblsurgery. From that very moment you have paid your deposit, now is the time to pay your skin a little more attention than normal
Why u ask? Well, first you want to get the circulation in your body uuum circulating lol. When you have proper circulation present in the body it helps to facilitate a healing environment because that means oxygen is flowing!
Dry brushing is a form of light exfoliation, very gently removing dead skin cells, polishing, detoxing the body and moving those toxins & fluids to the lymph system.
"Dry brushing with a quality oil and exfoliating should begin immediately. Especially if you suffer from dry skin!"
If you suffer from loose elasticity, poor circulation, or loose/sagging skin, dry brushing and exfoliating should done weekly to help tighten the skin. Collagen loss happens to both men & women especially after the age of 30. Both loose 1% of collagen yearly after the 30 year mark.
It is recommended to dry brush daily but if you have very sensitive skin you might want to opt for 3 x's a week. Never dry brush over broken, irritated or damaged skin. It will only exacerbate the situation.

Juniper Berry - contains diuretic properties that reduce fluid retention while its antioxidant properties stimulate the circulation of blood and the lymph system to help the body clear out waste.
