Why Dry Brush?

  • Dry brushing stimulates the body’s lymphatic system and helps with circulation.
  •  Aids in lymphatic drainage
  • Exfoliates the skin without chemicals
  • Increases blood flow and tightens skin
  • Purifies the entire system
  •  Dry skin brushing helps with muscle tone and more even distribution of fat deposits
  • .Rejuvenates the nervous system by stimulating nerve endings
  •  Helps your skin to absorb nutrients by eliminating clogged pores.

What is the Lymphatic System? 

The lymphatic system is part of the immune system. It helps collect and remove toxins to the blood stream.  The lymphatic system is vital for maintaining your bodies fluid balance plus it is HUGE for ensuring you absorb fats and fat-soluble nutrients.

How To Dry Brush

Select The Right Brush

You can find dry brushes on Amazon HERE.  It is essential the brush is made with natural, not synthetic, bristles.  A sisal brush (very stiff) is good for the body, and a boars head brush (softer) is better for delicate skin like the face. Brush anytime, but the best time is in the morning or at night.

How To:

Start at your feet and brush upward using firm (but gentle) strokes. Brush with the flow of your lymph nodes and that is  toward the heart.  Do not brush areas where you have any skin irritations. Don’t brush so hard that your skin turns raw or red… a little pink is okay.No cleansing program is complete without cleansing your skin as well.  Your skin collects all kinds of grime and toxins day to day, week to week …and how many years has it been?
