Dry Brush for Simply Beautiful Skin
By: Debra Rieder
This age old skin care method is simple, but the benefits are far beyond ordinary.
Your skin care routine is not complete without this easy step; not only does it stimulate the skin, but it eliminates toxins benefiting your overall health!
Skin Brushing Benefits
You brush your teeth, your brush your hair, why not brush your skin? Dry skin brushing gets rid of dead skin cells, unclogs pores and promotes cell renewal. This age old practice also increases blood circulation which may reduce the appearance of cellulite by helping muscle tone and causing a more even distribution of fat deposits. It can also help alleviate stress as the brush glides along your skin stimulating nerve endings producing a rejuvenating effect.
One of the unique benefits of skin brushing is that it stimulates your lymphatic system. The lymphatic system does not have a pump, as your heart does. It needs active stimulation to encourage waste materials to exit the body. Dry brushing actually prompts the lymph canals to drain toxic mucoid matter into the colon, helping to purify your entire system. Some have reported that after several days of dry brushing they noticed gelatinous mucoid material in their stools.
Get started now
Purchase a long handled brush made from natural (not synthetic) bristles. (We recommend this one!) Perform skin brushing once per day just before you get in the shower. Begin the process by brushing your skin in long sweeping strokes starting from the bottom of your feet upwards. Always brush towards the heart. Try and brush several times in each area, overlapping as you go. Avoid sensitive skin areas, or brush more gently over tender areas.
If you want to maintain beautiful skin you have to get beneath the surface; that is what dry skin brushing does. This approach, when done regularly, can rejuvenate your entire body from the inside out, leaving you with a radiant glow.
