How to Dry Brush

- Starting at the feet, brush the bottoms of your feet and up your legs in long smooth strokes. Brush each section of skin 10 times. For lymph flow, always brush towards the heart/chest area where the lymph system drains.
- Repeat the same process with the arms, starting with the palms of the hands and brushing up the arm toward the heart. Again, brush each section of skin 10 times.
- Repeat the process on your abdomen, back and face with gentle strokes for these more delicate areas.

So what is it and why should you consider doing it?
Dry brushing is exactly what it sounds like. Brushing the skin in a pattern with a dry brush, usually before showering. With dry brushing, the skin is typically brushed toward the heart, starting at the feet and hands and brushing toward the chest.
This practice helps support your lymphatic system, is great for exfoliation, cleans your pores, reduces cellulite and increases energy and blood flow. Cellulite is toxic materials trapped in our body’s fat cells. Lymphatic drainage is the best beauty regime you can do without exercise!
Our skin is the last organ to receive nutrients in our body but the first to show imbalances and deficiencies. Unfortunately, if your skin is over run with toxins or dead skin cells it will not be able to eliminate waste from your body efficiently. Dry brushing will produce a gentle internal massage and this will stimulate the other detoxification organs such as your liver, kidneys and your lungs. Dry brushing increases circulation to the skin and encourages your body’s discharge of metabolic waste. The increased blood flow enters all the areas that you are brushing and increase the electro-magnetic energy to help you feel energized.
Benefits of Dry Brushing
Dry Brushing has a multitude of benefits for your skin and overall health.
- Lymphatic Support: The lymphatic system is a major part of the body’s immune system. It is made up of organs and lymph nodes, ducts and vessels that transport lymph throughout the body. Many of these lymph vessels run just below the skin. Dry brushing regularly helps stimulate the normal lymph flow within the body and help the body detoxify itself naturally.
- Exfoliation: This benefit is often noticed the first time a person dry brushes. The process of running a firm, natural bristled brush over the skin helps loosen and remove dead skin cells, naturally exfoliating skin. You will notice softer skin in the first few days. Dry brushing is one of the simplest and most natural ways to exfoliate skin.
- Clean Pores: The added benefit of exfoliating the skin, is clearing oil, dirt and residue from the pores. Though it isn’t recommended to dry brush the face unless you have a special, more delicate brush, dry brushing helps improve pores on the rest of the body.
