The role of dry skin body brushing
Dry skin body brushing is an effective method for removing dead layers of skin and assists the skin in eliminating toxins.
Did you know you lose approximately 18kg of dead skin cells in a lifetime? Of all the major routes of elimination in the body, the colon, the kidneys, the lungs, and the skin, the largest elimination organ is your skin.
Dry skin body brushing stimulates and increases blood circulation in all underlying organs and tissues. It helps to remove cellulite and tighten the skin, thus preventing premature ageing. It also assists in cleansing and strengthening the lymphatic system.
Dry skin brushing keep’s your skin looking and feeling young, smooth and strong.
How to dry brush your skin
Dry brush your dry and naked body before you shower or bathe so that you can wash off the impurities from the skin as a result of the brushing action.
You can do the brushing head-to-toe or toe-to-head. It really doesn’t matter as long as the entire body is brushed. Use long sweeping strokes and use as much pressure as you find comfortable.
Skin brushing should be done once a day, preferably first thing in the morning.
A thorough skin brushing takes about 10 to 15 minutes, but any time spent brushing before bathing will benefit the body.
Remember to avoid brushing any skin that is irritated, damaged or infected and for hygienic reasons use separate brushes for each member of the family.
