Our skin, the largest organ in the human body, is an organ of elimination. At least one third of our body’s toxins are excreted through the skin. Dry brushing helps to unclog pores and excrete toxins that become trapped in or under the skin. This makes dry skin brushing a powerful detoxification aid.
When researching dry skin brushing, the number one benefit I found is stimulation of the lymphatic system. Our lymphatic system is responsible for eliminating our cellular waste products, which drain from the tissues into the blood. Dry skin brushing helps our lymphatic system to release built up toxins in our body. Dry skin brushing also increases circulation in our bodies which assists with the elimination of metabolic waste. This also makes it very invigorating to the body as it increases blood flow to all these areas. I have seen firsthand a huge benefit to the appearance and feel of my skin. Dry skin brushing exfoliates the skin and removes dead, dry skin which allows it to breathe. When I make brushing my skin a part of my regular skincare routine, I do not need to add extra oils or lotions to my skin. It sloughs off the dead skin cells leaving soft, silky skin on my entire body. I also love to take a smaller, softer brush into the shower and exfoliate my face and neck area, I notice this helps unclog the pores on my face. And makes my nightly essential oil face serum absorb into my skin more effectively. According to MindBodyGreen, dry brushing helps to reduce cellulite. They also say cellulite is simply toxic materials that have accumulated in your body’s fat cells and are trapped, unable to be eliminated from the body. Forget lipo, dry skin brushing helps to break down any trapped toxins from within the body and help your body eliminate them through its usual elimination channels.
I hope you add dry skin brushing to your self care routine for a happy, healthy body.
