Dry brushing is the act of using a long handled, natural bristle brush to brush your skin – no water, oil, or lotion added.
Because your skin helps to detoxify the body, it’s important to keep it healthy so that it can do its job. However, if your skin has too many toxins or dead skin cells, it may not be able to eliminate waste from your body as efficiently as needed.
Dry brushing your skin can help your lymphatic system, which has the job of removing toxins from the body and ultimately helps prevent you from getting sick. When inflammation builds up in the body, it can cause the body to struggle to fight off that inflammation. If the skin is healthy, it can help release those toxins so that the body is not having to work so hard to rid itself of them
Additionally, dry brushing:
- Exfoliates dead skin
- Reduces cellulite
- Unclogs pores
- Boosts energy
