Lymphatic Dry Skin Brushing is an important step to maintaining good health, a strong immune system and glowing skin. In addition to improving the look and texture of your skin, dry brushing assists with the important function of detoxification. Skin is our body’s largest elimination organ, discharging more than a pound of impurities and toxins through our pores on a daily basis! Therefore it is important that we keep our skin and pores exfoliated and clean.
What are Dry Skin Brushes?
It’s a stiff bristled brush that when used properly, assists the body’s lymphatic system in detoxifying the body. The lymphatic system is an important part of the immune system, but it has no pumping mechanism. Skin is the largest elimination organ of the body and brushing the skin encourages the lymph fluid to move and remove impurities. Therefore it is important to use a stiff bristle brush – to ensure that the lymphatic system gets pumping and does it’s job. Brushing also exfoliates and cleanses the skin, allowing impurities to escape through pores. Brushing also increases circulation, promoting the release of toxins.
The benefits to skin brushing are numerous:
~ Strengthens the immune system and improves overall health.
~ Improves muscle tone by distributing fat deposits within the skin’s tissues.
~ Promotes clear skin by exfoliating dead layers of skin.
~ Increases cell renewal to reveal softer, more youthful and resilient skin.
~ Improves skin texture and tightens loose
~ Stimulates lymph and blood circulation for the removal of impurities.
~ Cleans pores which allows for metabolic waste to be released.
~ Stimulates nerve endings in skin which is beneficial for the nervous system.
~ Activates normal healing pathways throughout your body.
How to brush:
The stiffer the bristles on the brush, the better the lymphatic stimulation generated.
Avoid sensitive areas as well as cuts, rashes and wounds.
It’s best to do skin brushing in the shower before getting wet. Brush entire body (except face) using short, light, frequent strokes toward the heart using both up-and-down and circular motions. Begin with the soles of the feet followed by ankles and calves, working up both front and back. Then do hands, arms, underarms, chest and upper back, always remembering to focus the brush strokes towards the heart.
How to care for your brush:
Wash with soap and water, hang to dry.
