I’m not going to go all biology on you .. but let’s layout it out simple.

The largest organ in the body is our “SKIN” which is responsible for detoxifiying and eliminating waste from our body.  Which is why it shouldn’t be neglected!

Fact: Did you know that body odor is an indicator for toxic build up in your body? Doesn’t mean if you don’t smell you’re body is toxic free either.

Won’t the bristles damage my skin?

On the contrary most cosmetic treatments and chemical peels have nasty side effects and may rid you of excess skin layers.  Where as the bristles of a dry brush will handle the skin with maximum care and gentleness

 

Benefits of Dry brushing:

There are soooo many benefits to dry brushing but here are a few that I hope will inspire you to get started today!

*Cellulite:  Dry brushing is also a way of massaging those areas which greatly benefits the skin.  Paying special attention to those “orange peel zones” everyday combined with excercise and a healthy diet should help reduce the appearance and tighten the skin.

*Soft skin: Dry brushing on a daily basis will start ridding your body of all the dead dry skin.  Once you have yourself in a brushing routine you will start to notice you will not need to lather your  self with body creams and oils, you have helped your body to produce natural oils which you will notice makes your skin baby soft!

*Unclogged pores: Dry brushing helps by unclogging pores therefore allowing your body to benefit from nutrients (at this point STOP! think about what you choose to put on your skin..keep it 100% natural, anything else gets directly sucked into your bloodstream within minutes).

*Lymphatic drainage:  Dry brushing helps and stimulates the lymph to eliminate the body of all the toxic build up it has been exposed to.

 

DRY BRUSHING 101:

1.  Get yourself a natural bristle brush with a long handle to help you reach those hard to reach areas.

2. Start your dry brushing first thing in the morning prior to your shower/bath on naked dry skin!

3. Start with upward motions starting with your feet up to make sure you cover your whole body.  Overlap as you are brushing and repeat areas as well. Avoid sensitive areas.

4. After brushing, shower and try alternating the water temperature from hot to cold will help stimulate the blood circulation.

5. After your shower massage your body with almond, pure coconut, jojoba, natural blend oils..

 

Looking after your dry brush is simple: wash it with soap once a week and let it air dry in the sun!

There is nothing as invigorating as stepping out of a shower after DRY BRUSHING!

Create a little spa in your bathroom. Light some candles, put on some music, oils etc and indulge in yourself! This takes no more than 20mins! Imagine going to the spa every morning and starting your day! Well you can… at the comfort of your own home!
