Dry skin brushing helps to remove dead skin, and any toxins that your body expels through your skin.
The skin is the body’s largest organ. Along with the colon and urinary tract, the skin is one of the most important waste management organs of the body.
When you brush your skin with a dry brush you are also stimulating the lymph nodes. This in turn helps with further circulation and elimination of toxins, and boosts the immune system.
A healthy blood flow instantly speeds up the transportation of both oxygen and nutrients to the cells and tissue to help increase collagen for a smooth, supple appearance and feel.
Dry brushing unclogs pores in the exfoliation process.
It also stimulates your nervous system, which can make you feel invigorated afterwards.
Alongside smooth skin, regular body brushing encourages cell turnover so that your limbs will look and feel supple, and whether you wax or shave, a quick brush is fantastic at keeping pesky, ingrown hairs and clogged pores at bay.
Skin brushing helps eliminate cellulite too! Simply brush your thighs and any area where you experience cellulite, and see what happens. In effect you are giving the toxins that are stored in your thighs a way out. It also helps to mobilize and contribute to the even distribution of fat deposits under the skin - and if you stick at it, it's proven to give your limbs a much smoother, and firmer, look and feel.
