How do you body brush (what motions) and what brush do you use? I tried doing it yesterday but the bristles on my brush are not as soft as I thought, it scratches my skin. I wanna try this regularly for a month, see how it goes...

I have kp and my skin is rough. I read that regular body brushing helps to eliminate dead skin cells and helps keep your skin smooth

I think you're supposed to do circular, upwards motions towards your heart as it's based on the circulatory system, blood flow, etc.
I could easily be wrong though.

would this help with stretch marks as well?
 
Not sure. I don't remember reading about stretch marks for this but some people advocate this to keep your body skin smooth and on point

No, I think you're right. That's what I remember reading. But I was hoping to get tips from people who do this on a regular basis. Plus I don't know where to buy a body brush
 
PS: Actually I'm watching a video where they are recommanding a sweeping upwards motion, always towards the heart

I dry brush.

Some people do little brush strokes, others do circular. Me? I do a mixture of both and yes, you've always got to go in the direction of the heart!

i just use my dry scrubby gloves in a circular motion.  the brush seemed awkward to me.  but i'm probably not getting the exact same effect.  my skin is super soft tho...

What brush do you use? I'm looking for something that is not too stiff
