The Best Way To Exfoliate: Dry Body Brushing 101
Many people tend to the skin on their face, regularly exfoliating, cleansing, and moisturising. But when was the last time you tended to the skin on the rest of your body? Your skin is your largest organ, after all, and there is one simple step you can add to your morning routine that can greatly improve its health – dry body brushing. When it comes to beauty treatments, dry body brushing offers remarkable results, and takes only minutes to do – really there’s no excuse.
1. It’s A Great Way To Exfoliate
Dry brushing is one of the simplest and most natural ways to exfoliate skin, as it removes dead dry skin, which improves appearance, clears clogged pores, and allows your skin to “breathe”. Regular exfoliation primes your skin to absorb the ingredients from body creams and serums much more effectively, which means you get a lot more bang for your buck in the long run.
2. Reduces Cellulite
While dry body brushing won’t completely rid your legs of cellulite, it will help to soften hard fat deposits below the skin, while distributing fat deposits more evenly. Continuous dry brushing is also said to remove toxins that may break down connective tissue to give your limbs a much smoother, and firmer, look and feel.
3. Boosts Your Immune System
The lymphatic system is a major part of the body’s immune system. Bacteria, toxins and waste from our blood filter through the lymph nodes where these substances are destroyed. Dry body brushing stimulates the lymphatic system, and by doing this, directly assists in removing pathogens. This strengthens our immune system and helps the body detoxify itself naturally, turning your skin into a third kidney!
4. Increases Energy
Dry body brushing increases circulation, stimulated by the vigorous brushing action. This also gives the body, skin and mind a natural energy boost. As a result, it is recommended to do dry brushing in the morning.
