From boosting the body’s circulation to improving the overall condition of the skin, dry brushing is a much-loved practice
In our quest to get perfect skin we started dry brushing. The latest trend that helps your skin erase cellulite by promoting the shedding of dead skin. It also stimulates the lymphatic system, which is part of the circulatory system and plays an important part in the immune system by drawing out waste from the skin and increasing blood circulation, which all promotes a healthy, radiant glow.
But the list of benefits doesn’t end there, it can also help to stimulate the sweat glands, increase skin cell renewal, improve appearance of cellulite, assist digestion and improve overall health of the liver and kidney function.
Done on dry skin (just as the name suggests), the best time to dry brush is first thing in the morning, pre-shower, but you can also do it before bed. Begin at the ankles and brush upward using light but firm strokes. You always want to brush toward the heart because that is the way the lymph flows naturally. After you finish your legs, brush your stomach, arms, and shoulders. Be careful not too brush too hard; skin should be stimulated and invigorated but not irritated or red.
This trend is slowly catching on and offers more than simple exfoliation in the shower.
