Skin is our largest organ; it is an active organ and so important to many functions in the body including absorption, elimination and detoxification. Dry skin brushing can improve circulation, activate lymphatic draining, support hormone health and improve skin radiance.
Here’s how it’s done: First of all, you’ll need a brush with soft, natural bristles, or a loofah. These are available at most natural health stores.
Dry skin brushing should be done before a shower, on dry, healthy, intact skin. Beginning on areas furthest from your torso, apply light-to-moderate pressure in a swift, sweeping motion, moving towards the heart.
Dry skin brushing is a quick and easy technique to improve circulation and lymphatic draining. In total, it should take no longer than 2 minutes and can be done as frequently as everyday.
