Do This Daily – To begin with, Dry brush the skin before showering or bathing either in the morning or evening. By having the body dry makes it easier to brush and sweep away the dead skin cells. The bristles can also get a better purchase on the skin to pump and draw away the fluid in the lymphatic system that lies just beneath the skin’s layers. It’s important to remember ‘be gentle.’

Regardless of the texture of the bristles, you need only apply very soft pressure. You don’t want to harm your skin by brushing too hard, and too much pressure isn’t very effective for the lymphatic system.

Start at the soles of the feet and work with long sweeping movements up the legs towards the thighs and buttocks and gently over the abdomen, all the time moving towards the heart, paying extra attention to areas that are prone to cellulite.

Gently complete brushing the remaining areas, the arms, chest, back, and neck.

The Correct Direction of Brushing:

As one of the main benefits is to promote the lymph flow, it’s best to brush in the direction of the flow.

The photo above shows the direction of flow heading to the primary lymph nodes. Don’t get too confounded with remembering it, but when in doubt, aim for and brush up towards the joint areas, particularly the armpit and the hip/groin creases. When you are get used to dry skin brushing it only takes about 5 minutes to do the whole body.

You can now Indulge in a warm, powerful shower or bath to open the pores.

Dry pat your skin, then pour a small measure of the oil into the palms and gently massage into the body, paying particular attention to those problem areas, especially the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen.

Healthy Tip:

Keeping a healthy lifestyle while coping with a busy routine can be a massive test in today’s environment. The demands and pressure of everyday life can hinder good intentions and lead to a build-up of toxins in the body.

I have to admit I was a little skeptical about dry skin brushing, but there was sufficient evidence to support its effectiveness and the fact that I could purchase the correct brush to use along with the body oil was a huge bonus.

Using the brush took a couple of goes to get used to, but i now body brush before my shower each morning, and it is something I thoroughly enjoy. It makes me feel wide awake and gets my day off to a good start. (Remember – Don’t wet the brush).
Following my shower I use the body oil: It only takes a couple of minutes to apply but is well worth the effort, and I can still feel a difference in the softness of my skin throughout the day and into the evening.
The fragrance of the oil is lovely; subtle and refreshing. I do see an improvement in my cellulite, and my skin complexion is definitely looking healthier. I can definitely recommend this product.

  1. Just thought I would let you know that I have been using the Elemis Dry Brush, and Active Body Oil for a while now, and I am impressed with the results so far. Watching the video on here and following the diagram on the correct technique for brushing has been very helpful, and it’s good to know that I am using the brush and technique correctly, my skin is looking and feeling much smoother, and my legs feel relaxed and my ankles are not so swollen. Thank you for your help.

    1. Hi, thank you for taking the time to let me know about your experience of using Elemis products. It’s good to know you are finding them beneficial to your skin. The other good thing that I like about the Elemis Active Body Oil is that when I apply it after my morning shower that I can get dressed almost straight away as the oil does not feel oily on my skin and soaks in very quickly. I hope you continue to find it useful 🙂

  2. Hi Jo, I bought the Elemis Cellutox body brushing program for my Mum, she is a little hesitant about trying new products but with gentle encouragement she began using the product and is pleasantly surprised with the results in a relatively short amount of time. She is already finding her skin more subtle, smoother and glowing, also feeling her legs and ankles less restless and not as swollen. Mum and I are very happy with this results and will be recommending to friends and family, thanks Jo
    Best wishes Cathy ?? Also, I have to mention the offer Elemis have at the moment, you can buy the Elemis Body Oil & Body Brush for just the price of the Body Oil, well worth the price!

    1. Hi, that is so good to hear is willing to try new products and ‘gain’ the rewards from using them, we should never be afraid to try new things as products are evolving all the time 🙂 I agree totally with you about the offer Elemis are doing at the moment, to get the brush and the body oil for that price really is terrific value.

  3. I have gained weight over last few months which has now turned to cellulite around my thighs. The Elemis body brushing and oil works for me in reducing that horrible cellulite appearance, and I find it helps with exfoliating the skin at the same time.
