Skin Brushing, what now?

I have only recently heard of dry brushing your skin, for me, it made sense and sounded like it might exfoliate my skin.  I was unaware of the other benefits it possessed. So I did a bit of research and here is what I found.

What is involved?

  1. Pick a natural-bristle brush that’s stiff but not too hard.
  2. Your skin and brush should be dry.
  3. Begin by brushing the outermost parts of your body (hands and feet) towards the center of your body.
  4. Brush strokes should be soft and gentle, this should not hurt or sting.
  5. This is for the body not for that face, so don’t dry brush your face. You can do your neck.
  6. It is normal for your skin to be a bit pink afterwards however it shouldn’t be red or too sensitive to touch.
  7. Shower after skin brushing to remove exfoliated skin.
  8. Moisturize the skin after your shower, coconut oil is a good option.

Reasons for doing it:

  • Skin detox allows toxins to move out of the body
  • Removes dead skin layers and softens out rough patches
  • Cleanse the lymphatic system
  • Helps reduce cellulite and prevent it and who doesn’t want that?
  • Soft the skin and opens clogged pores
  • It’s incredibly energizing and invigorating
  • Stimulates circulation and plumps up the skin for a healthy glow

Unexpected benefits Dry brushing stimulates the lymph system when the lymph system is not flowing properly then the immune system does not get a chance to kill invading foreign particles and microorganisms. Which means when you dry brush it begins circulating and helps your immune system :)
