If you had a magic recipe for glowing skin, would you use it?
We know we would!
Chances are, you’ve heard of dry brushing. Maybe you’ve seen the natural bristles in the front of the spa or on a wellness website. Regardless of where you discovered dry brushing, it is important to learn all about the health benefits this technique provides.
Today, we’re going to walk you through why dry brushing has become one of our favorite daily routines.
To start, dry brushing is a technique that is used on our favorite organ. Can you guess which one?
If you guessed SKIN…you are right!
Skin is in, Royals, and dry brushing is the ultimate way to take care of our largest organ.
Our skin is a reflection of our internal world and is key in the daily detoxification of the body. Our skin receives a third of all the blood that is circulated in the body, and when the blood is full of toxic materials the skin is a reflection of these problems. In fact, the skin is the last to receive nutrients in the body yet the very first to show signs of imbalance or deficiency.
Knowing this, I’m sure you can imagine why we’re so skin-obsessed!
So, what is dry brushing?
There are a few different ways to dry brush and all of them focus on brushing the limbs and torso, always in the direction of our heart. Simply running the dry brush over the skin for a few minutes before getting in the shower has a multitude of benefits that we’ll discuss below:
Dry Brushing Increases Circulation
At first glance, an increase in circulation may not seem like a big deal, however, it can actually help reduce the appearance of cellulite, which is a major benefit in our eyes! Cellulite is toxic material accumulated in your body’s fat cells. Rather than undergoing surgery, why not dry brush instead?
Dry Brushing Helps Shed Dead Skin Cells
Daily dry brushing helps to shed dead skin cells while encouraging new cell renewal. This technique results in smoother and brighter skin. For those that struggle with ingrown hairs, dry brushing can also help to remove those pesky hairs!
Dry Brushing Improves Lymphatic Drainage
By releasing toxins, dry brushing helps improve blood circulation and the body’s discharge of metabolic waste. This allows the body, blood, and organs to run more effectively.
Dry Brushing Rejuvenates Internally and Externally
Not only does dry brushing feel great while you’re doing it, but the act of running the brush on your skin stimulates nerve endings. In turn, it rejuvenates the nervous system. Dry brushing also helps your skin absorb nutrients by eliminating clogged pores.
