Dry Body Brushing 

What makes this brush different that the rest? It's bristles aren't too soft or too hard.

Dry brushing with a brush that is too hard can leave your skin red and sore long after useage. It can also create microscopic cuts in the skin. This can lead to body breakouts and the loss of your own moisutre resulting in dehydration & premature aging. 

Dry brushing with a brush that is too soft doesn't really accomplish much. It may feel good, but you don't really get all that much exfoliation or detoxification of the lymphatic system.

 
What are the benefits of Dry Body Brushing?
-Dry brushing stimulates the oil glands and encourages them to function properly. 
-Dry skin brushing helps shed dead skin cells, which can help improve skin texture and cell renewal. Dry skin is a sign of sluggish cell turn over & skin that is most likely in need of detoxification. Therefore it’s good to encourage the body's natural processes by removing the dead skin daily. If this does not occur, a buildup of cells can occur & a person can up with acne, keratosis pillaris eczema, psoriasis, and dandruff.
-Your skin will look and feel cleaner and will be revitalized. 
-Proper Lymphatic Draining is encouraged with the regular practice of dry body brushing. 
 
What is Dry Body Brushing?
 
A dry body brush is a wonderful, revitalizing health and beauty aid. Removing the top layer of dead skin and stimulating the circulation of blood feeding the skin are essential for maintaining youthful, glowing, and supple skin. Skin Brushing has been used throughout the world for centuries and is again growing in popularity. Dry skin brushing is one of the best ways to cleanse the skin without removing the protective layer of necessary acids and oils. It gently and effectively removes the top layer of dead skin cells, which contains dirt and acid, and deeply cleanses the pores.

Skin brushing is one of the most powerful ways to cleanse the lymphatic system. Waste material is carried away from the cells by the blood and the lymph. Skin brushing stimulates the release of this material from the cells near the surface of the body. Eventually, most of the toxins along with their carrier cells, primarily lymphocytes, find their way to the colon for elimination.

Skin brushing is also used by many individuals as part of a program for reducing and/or removing cellulite.

Skin brushing is most effective with an all-natural fiber brush, such as this one. Make sure the brush isn’t made of synthetic fiber since this can irritate the skin. 

Suggested Use:

The best time to skin brush is right before your shower or bath. Most health experts recommend brushing when the skin is dry for best results. If you have poison ivy, skin rashes, infections, or inflammatory problems such as psoriasis, do not brush that part of the skin.

Begin with very gentle strokes and adapt the intensity of the brushing to match the sensitivity of your skin. There are different theories about the most effective method for brushing the skin. Here is a simple method that works:

The basic principle is to brush from the outermost points of the body (hands and feet) towards the center. Start by brushing your feet and up your legs with smooth gentle strokes. Brush your hands and up your arms. Brush across your upper back and down the front and back of the torso. Cover the entire surface of the skin except for the more tender skin of the face and breasts.

A slight flush due to increased blood circulation is normal, and shows that your skin brushing is working. Be careful not to brush so hard that your skin turns bright red.

The total process takes only two or three minutes. When you are finished, step into your bath or shower. You will feel an invigorating, tingling sensation over your entire body.

Initially you may not notice much, however within days of beginning the practice of dry skin brushing you will start to notice quite a bit of dead skin cells being removed in the form of a fine dust. 
 
Many of my clients that came to me experiencing acne have found a great improvement in their condition after incorporating dry body brushing into their daily regimen. Even though they aren't brushing their face, the stimulation of the lymphatic system keeps the toxins moving throughout their entire body, thus improving the entirety of their skin. 
 
 
Note: 
If you struggle with keratosis pillaris, a skin condition on the arms, legs, or buttocks that looks like chicken skin, you may experience the bumpiness getting worse before it gets better. Keep it up, things will improve. You may also find using my  Body Buffing Cloth with Exfoliating Cleansing Foam in the shower will help to improve this condition as well.
 
*never brush the face, breasts, or genitals.
