Benefits of Dry Skin Brushing

Dry skin brushing has been around for quite a long time. It’s an excellent method for excreting toxins from our bodies. This type of stimulation of the skin also sets in motion a natural healing within our bodies. Here are some benefits of this practice you can do right at home:

1.) Dry skin brushing helps to shed dead skin cells, which can help improve skin texture and cell renewal.

2.) Dry skin brushing increases circulation to skin, encouraging your body’s discharge of metabolic wastes, which greatly aids the lymphatic drainage of the entire body. When the body rids itself of toxins, it is able to run more efficiently in all areas.

3.) Dry skin brushing also helps to tighten the skin because it increases the flow of blood. Increasing the circulation to the skin can also help lessen the appearance of cellulite.

4.) Dry skin brushing stimulates the lymph canals to drain toxic mucoid matter into the colon, thereby purifying the entire system. This enables the lymph to perform its house-cleaning duties by keeping the blood and other vital tissues detoxified.

5.) Dry skin brushing also rejuvenates the nervous system by stimulating nerve endings in the skin.

6.) Dry skin brushing helps your skin to absorb nutrients by eliminating clogged pores. Healthy, breathing skin contributes to overall body health.
