Why We Should ALL Be Dry Body Brushing

23. May 2016

You may be thinking, As IF I have the time to add something else to my already busy morning routine? Let me assure you, the extra five minutes this takes is well worth the investment.
Now grab a coffee and think back to your human biology class and answer these questions:
What is the largest organ in the body?
What is one of the most important elimination organs in the body, playing a large role in daily detox?
When the blood is full of toxic materials, what organ will reflect this with problems?
What organ is the last to receive nutrients in the body, yet the first to shows signs of imbalance or deficiency?
Answer for all: your SKIN!


Introducing Dry Body Brushing.

The benefits of dry skin brushing include:
  • Increasing the circulation to the skin can help to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Cellulite is toxic material accumulated in your body’s fat cells. So, rather than take drastic measures like liposuction or expensive smoothing procedures, try utilizing the dry skin brushing techniques to help break down unwanted toxins.
  • Dry body brushing helps shed dead skin cells (and encourages new cell renewal), which results in smoother and brighter skin. It can also help with any pesky ingrown hairs. Combine dry brushing with a Body Polish in the shower/bath and your skin will feel just like a baby's bottom.
  • It assists in improving vascular blood circulation and lymphatic drainage. By releasing toxins, it encourages the body’s discharge of metabolic wastes so the body is able to run more effectively.

 

Ok, so how on earth to dry body brush? It's Simple Really.
  • Lock your bathroom door so as to not scare the children. Start on dry skin before bathing. 
  • Work in gentle circular, upward motions, then longer, smoother strokes. 
  • Always begin at the ankles in upwards movements towards the heart - the lymphatic fluid flows through the body towards the heart, so it's important that you brush in the same direction.
  • Your back is the only exception to the preceding rule; brush from the neck down to the lower back.
  • After you've finished with the ankles, move up to the lower legs, thighs, stomach, back and arms. Be cautious of softer and sensitive skin around the chest and breasts, and never brush over inflamed skin, sores, sun-burnt skin, or skin cancer.
  • Ensure you shower to wash away the dead skin cells and impurities.  Use your  Body Polish in the shower to add some additional exfoliation and to leave your skin silky smooth (it contains all natural coconut oil, sweet almond oil and essential oils to leave you feeling moisturized and smelling divine).
