Skin brushing technique:
Individuals with sensitive skin may need to be cautious initially when performing skin brushing. A brush with bristles that are less stiff can be used if you are particularly sensitive. Less pressure can also be applied while performing skin brushing to reduce irritation.
Even for individuals without sensitive skin, skin brushing can take some time to get used to. You do want your brush to be stiff since the circulatory and lymphatic flow benefits arise from the mechanical effect of applying pressure to the skin. Experiment with short sessions initially while learning the technique and becoming familiar with how skin brushing effects your skin and body.
