Start with your feet and move upwards. Pay attention to the soles of your feet, when you are done with one foot move to the other. When you are brushing your soles and the upper part of your foot do not apply too much pressure as the skin in this area is delicate.
Move upwards paying keen attention to your calves, knees, your hip and buttocks. If you do this daily you will also be able to get rid of cellulite formation and breakdown unnecessary fat.
You will need a separate facial brush; you can use this brush on your chest as well. Once again you must be gentle as the skin in these areas is thin and you can cause severe bruising if you are not careful.
