Dry Skin Brushing

Your skin is the 2nd largest organ in your body and one of the main organs of detoxification. 

Daily skin brushing can help your skin stay healthy, beautiful and aid in detoxification.  It can do this by:

  • Removing dead skin cells
  • Cleansing your pores
  • Stimulating the hormone and oil producing glands in the skin
  • Keeping the skin soft and youthful
  • Improving circulation
  • Helping increase muscle tone
  • Stimulates nerve endings
  • Assists the body in removal of toxins
  • Improving health and vitality

Instructions:

  • Use a natural sponge, vegetable sponge or loofah sponge
  • Dry brush every day before bed
  • Use short strokes to brush lightly, stimulating the lymphatic system
  • Start at extremities, for example, your head, tips of your fingers, or tips of your toes, moving towards your heart
  • Brush for 45-60 seconds, covering your entire body
  • Cleanse the brush every few days with soap and warm water
