BENEFITS OF DRY BODY BRUSHING

It’s important to take care of the skin on your face but also the skin on your body.

Our skin is an amazing organ and when taken care of correctly, our skin acts as protection for our bodies.

Our bodies have a detoxification process to eliminate wastes. However, if our skin is overrun with dead skin cells, it won’t be as vibrant and healthy as possible.

That’s why dry brushing is an important step in your skincare routine. I like to do it quickly right before I jump into the shower, brushing upward towards the heart and here’s why.

BENEFITS OF DRY BODY BRUSHING

IT IMPROVES CIRCULATION

It improves the blood circulation in your body. Encouraging your skin to get rid of the old skin cells from your body and produce new, active skin cells.

IT CAN ASSIST IN REDUCING CELLULITE

Dry brushing softens hard fat deposits that are under the skin and distributes them more evenly. Over time, this can diminish the appearance of cellulite but these effects won’t last forever, so keep at it.

IT CAN RELIEVE STRESS

Brushing away dead skin cells may not seem relaxing but it can be meditative. Do it before a nice warm shower, in a quiet space, where you can calm your mind.

It also acts as a body massage and may reduce muscle tension.

IT HELPS YOUR LYMPHATIC SYSTEM

Dry body brushing stimulates your lymphatic system which works to rid the metabolic waste from your body.

IT FEELS GOOD

It may not seem like it at first but dry brushing becomes addictive. You notice when you haven’t done it because your skin doesn’t feel as toned and fresh. You can literally do it in 30 seconds to feel invigorated.
