Dry Skin Brushing

Dry Skin Brushing – A way to Detoxify!

Note: Always consult your doctor before making any major lifestyle changes.

It is well known that the skin is the largest organ in the body and is responsible for one-fourth of the bodies detoxification each day. Thus that makes it one of the most important elimination organs!

Our skin is also known as the “3rd” kidney while the lungs are known as the “2nd” Kidney. Toxicity can gather beneath the skin’s surface from such common influences such as improper pH levels in body soaps, skin creams and anti-perspirants. Also synthetic fibers worn next to the skin as well as poor diet can contribute to a combination of skin problems.

When you practice in regular and proper skin brushing you help your lymph system to clean itself of the toxins that collect in the lymph glands. Dry Skin brushing is a simple technique to improve surface circulation and keep the pores of the skin open to encourage your bodies discharge of metabolic wastes resulting in an improved ability to combat bacteria. Plus it helps your skin to look and feel healthier and more resilient!

Dry Skin Brushing Tecnnique:
1. Buy a natural (not synthetic) bristle brush as natural bristled brushes will not scratch the surface of your skin. Its best to purchase a brush with a long handle so you are able to get to areas of your body that are not easy to reach.
2.Dry Skin Brush before showering or bathing at least ONCE per day however twice a day is recommended if at all possible.
3.Do not wet your skin as it will not have the same affect because this stretches your skin.
4. Do lighter strokes over and around your breasts but do not brush the nipples.
5. Brush each part of your body several times vigorously and completely being sure to brush your whole body.
6. Brush the soles of your feet first because the nerve endings there affect your whole body. Next brush your ankles, calves, and thighs. Then brush across your stomach and your buttocks and lastly brush your hands to your arms.
7. Always skin brush towards the heart.
8. Do circular counter-clockwise strokes on your abdomen.
9. For areas that are sensitive like the groin area, face and under arms those maybe skipped.
10. After you have completed your brushing take a warm bath or shower which should always be followed by a cool rinse at the end to invigorate blood circulation and stimulate surface warmth.
11. Wash your brush every few weeks in water and allow it DRY.

Usually the results of dry skin brushing maybe seen within a month. The benefits for just a few moments of your time is well worth it! Happy Brushing!
