Dry Skin Brushing became a popular trend in the United States a few years ago, but this is an ancient practice used all over the world for many years. Keep reading while we share some of the benefits of this practice and how it can benefit your skin in more than one way.
What is the brushing of dry skin
The term is quite self explanatory; It is the act of using a specific type of brush to brush the skin while it is dry. For this you will need a natural bristle brush. There are some synthetic options on the market these days, but I do not suggest using any of these!
Benefits of brushing dry skin
Think of it as a detoxification for the skin. Remember that the largest organ is your skin and requires the same care and attention as other organs. This is not just for the purpose of embellishment, even if it exfoliates dead skin leaving you with a beautiful light. However, there are also healthy benefits.
- Keep in mind that a third of the toxins in your body are expelled through the skin. However, when the pores are clogged, these toxins can not escape so they get trapped in the skin and can lead to health problems. The unobstructed pores allow the nutrients to enter the skin and you will notice an improved difference in the structure of healthy skin.
- It increases blood circulation and helps to stimulate the lymphatic system
- Helps reduce cellulite
How to do it!
You will need to stay naked in your tub or shower. You do not want to do it in your bedroom before you're really wiping out the dead skin that gets a little messy. Begin to brush from the feet to the top in radical movements. It is advisable that you always have to touch your heart.
Continue until you have brushed all areas of your body, some parts will be more sensitive than others. Once you have finished, take a hot shower, then dry the skin and use a natural oil to seal the moisture.
You can do it twice a day; and remember to wash the brush with soap and water and let it dry in the air after each use.
