|Do you dry-brush your skin?|
I saw Kiki's video on dry brushing while I was completely sick, broken, on the floor, not able to move and so full of antibiotics I KNEW that my skin was totally blocked. I was a mess.
A few weeks ago, and thanks to the magic of Dr H, the Chinese Doctor that saved me with herbs, I had enough mental energy to recognize one of those dry brushes at the health store, and got one, although now that I think about it, mine looks a bit harsher than this one.
Not only that but I had also started my practice, and although my recovery was slow, painfully slow, I began to sweat a little here and there, to open the pores. It felt good.
Ever since that visit to the health food store I have started using the brush daily and must tell you: the thing works!
Not only do I feel like the lotions (lately I am a fan of sesame oil plus some lotion on top), are getting into the skin and they stay there giving a lustrous shining to the biggest organ in my body, I also get to smell them on my skin the following morning, they stick around!
I sometimes feel a bit like a horse or a dog being brushed like this, it is very new to me, and the funny thing is that this makes me feel wild and connected to nature in a way I did not anticipate.
Love the new ritual. And if you would like more on it, here is Kiki telling it from her perspective: (if you can't see the video go to ClaudiaYoga.com)
