Again, thank you Sean... your advice is really helpful.

Also, another question (sorry) my upper eyelids also seem kind of thin, and have some visible reddish veins on them. Could I get a softer brush and brush my upper eyelids? I'm afraid that the brush that I have (even though it's soft) is too hard to do the delicate upper eyelid skin... I was thinking of buying a baby hair brush and using that, as long as it was soft enough...

It's me again LD.

I just used the Olay product and then used my ring finger to just press down on the undereye area and moving the skin beneath it in a circle...I really think this is a better option than the roller. I don't have thick undereye skin but neither do I have really thin so it might make a difference if you have really thin skin.

HTH,
Mary

Would I be able to use a simple powder make up brush to do the more delicate areas, or are those bristles TOO soft?

Mary, thank you, I read the reviews of the product on their website and it sounded like most of the people were having bad luck with the product. Itchy, bumpy red swollen eyes in the am. I'll try LuLu's pinching and rolling and see what that does? I still have a fantasy about a litttle gizmo that would do the work for me! : Hope you are having better luck with the product. LD

Sean, my concern area is under my eyes. I just read another thread in which you and others were talking about massage techniques for under the eyes. They described the pinch and twist motion. I'm going to try it. You said that you do a massage technique, and then you also said that you dry brush every day. So then, it's safe to dry brush at the same time I do the massage technique? I'm so excited about seeing results!!!! Smile Thank you!

I wanted to dig up this old thread to share my most recent experience. I used to dry brush every now again and never really got into a routine because I "did not have time".

Finally, I decided to invest that time and am so glad I did. I have been dry brushing daily for about two weeks and my skin feels soft and just glows! Especially my hands - they were starting to look crepey, but now look really good.

I love Shea Terra Organics product and decided to try their Salt Spray (which should be used before dry brushing). I spray this on, wait 15 minutes then brush away. This makes the process much more pleasurable and it smells wonderful (all natural).

I like my brush ok, but and looking for a firmer version.

Can anyone else share their experiences?

Haha, you dug up my old thread! I forgot that I even made this! Wow, 5 years ago!

I need to purchase another dry brush and start dry brushing again, I will after I'm done with my first trial of my STOP and RF Dot Matrix, I don't wanna wear my skin out.

Too funny that you just dug this up and I happened to be signed on. Smile

I've been dry brushing for a long time. I use a natural bristle shoe shine brush for my stomach, back, and leg areas. I got the brush from ebay. It's rectangular in size and very stiff. Works great. For other parts, I use a small round brush for my face and the typical natural bristle skin brushing brush every where else. I do not brush directly under my eyes.

I think this in conjunction with exercise and eating right has helped me to have firmer skin as I go along in my fifties.

Sorry, Im a real newbie at all this but Im going to start dry brushing as it sounds so good for your skin. Could I ask a couple of probably really silly questions please? How can gently brushing with such a soft brush for so little time really help that much? Would I be better starting with a machine or manual? And are any better than others? Thank you Smile

The brushes aren't really soft per se, but they help exfoliate the skin by removing the dead skin cells. Your face is a much smaller area than your whole body so brushing the surface of it requires less time. You can use a machine, but you are better off getting a natural brush. There are directions already in this thread and I think I saw a link to brushes by someone. If not let me know, I can post one. You want to make sure its a natural fibre brush and not synthetic. Synthetic brushes can damage the skin and cause tears leaving it open to possible infection, whereas natural fibres don't cause the same level of damage and don't leave skin open to infections.

I have been dry brushing for 5 mnths now and the results are great. I belive that this is one of the best things you can do for your body. The droop under my uppere arms has definitely improve (i do use actgym and lift some weights but I believe the dry brushing made the results better).
Dry brushing is cheap makes you feel good and makes the skin on my body look great. Takes 5-10 minutes in the morning but is well worth it.

I too adore dry brushing and scrub scrub scrubbing all over. It is challenging for me to scrub my backside, even with a long handled brush. I tried a Salux which is a terrific body scrubber, although I like natural fibers. I found a natural Sisal fiber scrubber that is fantastic.

I wrote the article, Stimulate the Skin or Else, Use It of Lose It, summarizing the benefits of dry scrubbing (and scrubbing in general) posted here:

Wow. Thanks for your post.
I'm trying to find this Shea Terra Organics Salt Spray that you are talking about...but I can't find it. Are you sure that's what it's called?
