Dry body brushing is one of the best and simplest ways of keeping your skin silky smooth and in top health. In case you didn’t already know, the skin is actually the largest organ of the body so it really pays to look after it.
Dry skin brushing is a fantastic way of removing the dead skin from the top layer of the epidermis, which not only makes for skin as smooth as a babies bum, but also keeps our sweat glands clear. This is incredibly important as being able to sweat is one of the many vital functions of our skin. Our body rids itself of toxins through sweating – up to half a pound per day to be exact!
The physical action of dry skin brushing also stimulates our bodies circulation and lymphatic drainage too (our bodies natural detox system). This is fantastic news for anyone suffering from poor circulation, cold hands and feet and that bugbear cellulite.
Body brushing must always be performed on totally dry skin, before your bath or shower, 5 minutes every day. Make sure that your body brush is flat to your skin, use long light brisk movements always up towards the heart. No real pressure needs to be applied. Within 2 weeks you will see and feel a real difference in your skin. Be sure that your body brush is a good quality.
