Cactus bristle - this is the firmest type of bristle available is best used dry. Here at Hydrea we use the finest Mexican Tampico - a type of Cactus which is preferred by therapists and experienced body brushers for dry body brushing treatments as it is the most effective. It has firm, low flex, thicker fibres which improve with age.

Brushing tips: This is best carried out before a bath or shower so you can wash off the impurities. Starting at the feet, brush in long strokes up the legs and then concentrate on brushing your hands and up your arms. Repeat these brush strokes 7 times. When brushing your chest & upper back focus the strokes towards your heart. Brush in circular motions over the abdomen. Do not use on sensitive areas (face) or on broken skin. The whole routine should take about 10- 15 minutes. If you are new to body brushing try light strokes first and build up to harder strokes as the skin gets more used to it. For very sensitive skins it may be preferable to start with a softer natural bristle brush and work up towards the coarser cactus. For best results follow this with a massage with a one of our specially designed cellulite massagers – it is really so simple and effective!
