Dry brushing is exactly what it sounds like…You brush your skin! Creating smoother and increased circulation in the skin.
Brushing your skin upwards with a dry brush, usually before showering. Brush your skin toward the heart, starting at the feet and hands and brushing toward the chest. Brush in a circular motion on your tummy and under arms. Section of each part of your skin, not forgetting any part. I would recommend brushing each part a handful of times to insure you don’t miss any dry/dead skin.
Don’t brush your skin too hard. Be easy on your skin and build a tolerance to the brush strokes. Wash the brush every few days to removing any remaining skin cells.
Benefits of Dry Brushing and why we should build it into our morning routine:
Exfoliation- is the process of running a firm, natural bristled brush over your skin to help loose and remove dry & dead skin. It not only helps many skin problems, it also increases blood circulation, which will help to achieve healthy & glowing skin. Dry brushing is the most naturally and simplest way to exfoliate skin and your skin will feel instantly soft. Great way to start your morning is to start with dry brushing and then hop in the shower and then apply a good moisturiser afterwards to hydrate your skin.
Cellulite- Like Exfoliation, dry brushing reduces the appearances of cellulite. It creates smoother skin, especially on the back of your legs, bum and tummy. Continued use will reduce the cellulite effect.
Lymphatic Support- The Lymphatic system is a major part of the body’s immune system which is made up lymph nodes and organs, vessels and ducts that transport lymph throughout the body. Many of these vessels runs below your skin and by dry brushing your skin on regular it will stimulate the normal lymph flow within the body and help the body detox itself naturally.
Energy Booster- Dry brushing increase the circulation in the body it also increases energy. So doing it as part of your morning routine will set you up for the day.
