A little-known secret for skin beauty and well-being is being rediscovered today, and itâ€™s called Skin Brushing. Dry Skin Brushing (also known as Body Brushing) is a centuries-old practice that is very simple and powerful.
Itâ€™s simply brushing your absolutely dry skin (entire body except your face) in a specific motion to support skin renewal; to stimulate the lymphatic system (which in turn helps the immune, nervous and digestive systems); to aid in the removal of toxins; to exfoliate; and to give you a sense of well-being.
Dry brushing is one of the easiest techniques you can add to your daily regime (5 to 10 minutes daily) for the most impact. Although many of us are very busy and over-extended, just know that every minute counts. It is often hard to add something new to your schedule, especially if it is complicated or the benefits arenâ€™t all that obvious. But Skin Brushing doesnâ€™t fall into this category! It is simple and fast to do (less than 10 minutes daily) and its benefits are overwhelming.
Skin is fascinating. It is forever shedding, renewing and regenerating itself as our largest body organ. Skin is also the largest organ of elimination and responsible for ridding our bodies of about one-third of toxins daily. Our skin is semi-permeable, and the pores should be kept clear for healthy functioning. As we age, we are less able to throw off those dead cells and toxins, and this can make skin look dull and create a burden on the body and other organs. Healthy exfoliation at all ages helps to optimize skin, allowing it to glow and function well.
The fact that younger models are in love with Skin Brushing shows it is not just an anti-ageing practice. Skin Brushing is your new secret strategy for better skin.
In addition to optimizing skin, there are additional benefits to Skin Brushing that are quite powerful.
â€¢ Skin Brushing Helps Boost Blood Circulation: This helps deliver important nutrients through the body and gives our circulatory system a nice assist.
â€¢ Skin Brushing Aids the Lymphatic System: Unlike the circulatory system, the lymphatic system has no natural pump. It relies on movement, exercise, massage or Skin Brushing to move the toxins and lymph along to drain. Skin Brushing aids the lymphatic system, which helps support a strong immune system.
â€¢ Skin Brushing Can Reduce Cellulite â€“ or Keep it Away: Skin Brushing helps break down the accumulated toxins of cellulite and improve circulation to affected areas. It really helps!
â€¢ Skin Brushing is Invigorating and a Mood Enhancer: It is a clear aid in stress management. You gain a great sense of well-being after brushing.
