Dry skin brushing helps with the process of detoxing and removing the unhealthy substances and excess water retention out of your body.
Your skin is the largest organ in the human body. One third of your body’s toxins are excreted through the skin. Dry skin brushing helps to unclog pores and remove the upper layer of old skin cells. This helps the body excrete toxins that become trapped in the skin.
Dry skin brushing also helps to circulate healthy oxygen and other nutrients through the body. Since dry brushing also gets your lymphatic system moving, it helps to drain any puffy areas on your face and body. This beautification is different than beauty buffing which is dedicated to exfoliating the top – superficial layer of skin. Body brushing targets the circulation and lymphatic system although it does help with the process of exfoliation somewhat.
To get started skin brushing, use the simple steps below:
1. Purchase a natural bristle brush. Aquabella Natural Body Brush (No Handle)
2. Undress and stand in a bathtub or tiled surface to catch the exfoliated dead skin.
3. Begin brushing by starting at your feet and moving in long sweeping motions toward your heart.
4. Brush several times in each area, overlapping as you go.
5. Be careful when you brush more sensitive areas of the skin.
6. Once you’ve brushed your entire body, jump in the shower. Alternate the water temperature between hot and cold, being careful not to burn your skin. This stimulates blood circulation nearest the epidermis.
7. After getting out of the shower, pat dry skin and apply a natural oil to your body.
8. Continue to dry brush your entire body, at least once per week. Remember to clean your brush with soap occasionally. Leave to dry in a clean, sunny spot to avoid any mildew accumulation on your brush.
