How Does Dry Skin Body Brushing Work ?
Your skin is the largest organ in the human body. One third of your body’s toxins are excreted through the skin and dry brushing helps to unclog pores and excrete toxins that become trapped in the skin.
To get started, follow the simple steps below:
-Get naked in the shower and begin brushing by starting at your feet and moving in long sweeping motions toward your heart. Always brush toward your heart brushing at least 5 times in each area ( legs, arms, torso, neck, groin, hands, feet, shoulder blades, underarms, back and bottom ) Take care as you brush over more sensitive areas, like your breasts.
- Once you've brushed your entire body, jump in the shower. (I like to alternate between the hottest water temperature I can tolerate and the coldest. This stimulates blood circulation, bringing more blood to the top layers of the skin.) Do this every day for bet results.
-After getting out of the shower, dry your skin and moisturise with a natural fruit oil like rose hip or coconut oil.
- Remember to clean your brush with a natural soap and water once a week. Leave to dry in a clean, sunny spot
Some benefits of dry skin brushing:
1. You'll exfoliate dead skin. Giving a clean natural glow to the skin.
2. Dry Body Brushing will stimulate your lymphatic system.
Did you know the lymph is the body’s major fat processing system’, skin brushing will assist in the detoxification of your body by enhancing the lymphatic drainage of waste products.
The stiffer the bristles on the brush, the better the lymphatic stimulation you’ll create.
3. Dry brushing helps to reduce cellulite.
Cellulite is simply toxic materials that have accumulated in your body’s fat cells and are trapped, unable to be eliminated from the body. Dry skin brushing helps to break down any trapped toxins from within the body and helps your body eliminate them through its usual elimination channels.
4.Dry skin brushing unclogs your skins pores and helps your skin absorb more nutrients. Daily skin brushing promotes healthy, breathing skin.
