Want healthier looking skin? Then get body brushing
Dry body brushing is an effective way to get your skin looking smoother, healthier and glowing as it stimulates the body’s circulation and lymphatic systems. It can also help with bloating as massaging the lymph nodes helps the body shed excess water and eliminate toxins. Not only will your skin look instantly brighter, but it can also help improve digestion, kidney function and much more.
Begin at the ankles and brush upward using light but firm strokes. You always want to brush toward the heart because that is the way the lymph flows naturally. After you finish your legs, brush your stomach, arms, and shoulders. Your skin may be a little pink afterward, but it shouldn’t hurt – if it does, you need to lay off the pressure and avoid sensitive areas such as open cuts, abrasions and any patches of eczema or psorias.
We recommend a brush with natural bristles and aim to brush at least a few times a week. Afterwards drink a glass of hot water and lemon to help jumpstart your digestive system as it is a great way to start your day.
We sell a long handled skin brush by the Organic Pharmacy that is perfect to reach those awkward areas. Team this with their De-tox Cellulite Body Oil to intensify your skin’s appearance.
