Maguey Body Brush
Hecho was created by a group of 12 women artisans who collaborated on a range of products – baskets, bags, home wares, hand woven and embroidered textiles and more. The group formed in 1988 as a means to source and share ideas, and effectively support the women in their small community in Mexico.
Used in spas the world over, dry brushing is a traditional technique that helps to slough dead cells, reduces the appearance of cellulite, cleanses the lymphatic system, supports digestion, increase energy, tightens skin and stimulates circulation. In addition to this, our artisan partners claim that these brushes help to encourage a healthy immune system and a healthy heart. Simply use daily – preferably during the morning – by dry brushing the entire body, with added pressure on areas with thicker skin like the feet, then rinse the body with both hot and cold water. The brush is meant to be used dry only, and is long enough to reach the back for scrubbing.
This piece is only for use as a dry brush. Water will destroy the bristles irreparably. For best results, the brush can be moved across the body in firm, small strokes in an upwards or circular motion towards the heart. With the daily addition of this ritual for 3 – 5 minutes a day, skin will be substantially softer and firmer, and overall health improved.
