I heard about this dry brushing technique long time ago. Heard it on one of the TV talk show, which I do not remember which one:( This beautiful model/actress shared little bit info. She was mentioning that its one of her daily beauty routine keeping her skin healthy and glowing. At that moment, I wasn't too interested about this dry skin brushing. I thought you have to go a spa to get this special treatment! How i got interested about this dry brushing, as some you know that i had a jogging accident last weekend, I did hurt myself pretty bad and finally starting to feel better:) I suffered minor scrapes and sore with very tenderness knees up to this day. My wounds on both knees are starting to heal but still look awful and having soreness around the area. My lymph nodes in both legs were affected with the scrapes i got after the day of the little accident. Well to make this story short, I kinda got interested about our lymph nodes in our body? So I did some reading and research. As when doing this research, I happened to read one the blog I follow religiously and her article was dry skin brushing. She was mentioning all the good benefits and how its good for detoxification inside our system. So I got so interested that I did some deep looking about this technique. There's really good benefits for our health.
You just have to spend a few minutes removing dead skin cells before your shower in the morning. But wait, here's more good benefits it will also help get rid of cellulite, cleans the lymphatic system ( this is the one I really really like :D, and removes dead skins. There's more, dry skin brushing helps stimulates hormonal glands, strengthen the immune system, stimulates circulation and much more good benefits. So I am sold already!!! To this day it is still popular in European spas and many cancer treatment center.
Here's a few tips it you'd like to try this yourself:
1. Dry brush you dry naked body before your shower or bathe preferably in the morning.
2. Use circular motions or long sweeping strokes starting the bottom of your feet upwards and towards
your heart and not away.
3. Use lighter pressure as the skin is more sensitive when you work your way up. No need to make your
4. Finish up with your regular shower and ending with hot and cold cycles, (3X). This will further in-
vigorate your skin and stimulate blood circulation, bringing more blood to the outer layers of the skin.
5. Use a brush with natural bristle and not synthetic. Look for one with the long handle with a detach-
able head for flexible access to hard to reach areas.
You can find this kind of skin brush at any natural food market, Wal-Mart, Target and Health Food stores. Better yet, online shopping is more convenient.
I hope i got you interested in this dry skin brushing, a good way to detoxify, the natural way!!!
