Why You Should Be Dry Brushing

 

Imagine a simple, fast and effective wellness trick that can help detoxify your body inside and out, leaving you with you soft, glowing skin. And, it’s practically free!

Seems too good to be true, right?

Wrong!

Dry brushing is an incredibly healing holistic body treatment that involves brushing the skin with a natural bristle brush like this one to awaken your lymphatic system and free you from dry, dead skin. Starting at your feet, you will gently brush towards your heart in long, sweeping motions.

Dry Brushing assists in detoxification of our largest organ, the skin. One third of the body’s toxins are excreted through the skin and dry brushing helps to unclog and cleanse pores to release toxins that may have become trapped.

Dry brushing supports lymphatic drainage, reduces of fluid retention, exfoliates dead skin cells which encourages new cell formation, improves skin tone, increases immunity and helps reduce cellulite while increasing energy and improving circulation.

Ideally, you’ll want to start dry brushing once a day, in the morning before showering.

How to Dry Brush:

  1. Starting at the feet, brush the bottoms of the feet and up the legs in long, smooth strokes.   Brush each section of skin about 10 times. For lymph flow, always brush toward the heart/chest area where the lymph system drains.
  2. Repeat the same process with the arms, starting with the palms of the hands and brushing up the arm toward the heart. Again, brush each section of skin 10 times.
  3. Repeat the process on your abdomen and back (best if used with a long-handled brush for hand to reach areas)
  4. Finish off by massaging in your favorite oil (coconut, almond, jojoba, etc) and let it absorb for a few minutes before showering.

Note: Don’t brush too hard! A soft and smooth stroke often works best. You should find your skin is slightly pink after brushing, but it should never be red or sting.
