Dry brushing to detox naturally
Your skin is constantly breathing and detoxifying. An average person eliminates about 2 pounds of waste per day just through skin! If your pores are blocked and not able to work properly, your kidneys, your liver and your lymphatic system will need to compensate, which can lead to a toxic overcharge. Dry brushing skin before taking a shower, a bath or a sauna helps to detox naturally the skin pores and stimulates blood circulation and lymphatic system. The best is to do it everyday.
Dry brushing to detox naturally: how to do it
You will need a tall brush with strong natural bristles for the body, and a smaller one with softer bristles for your face and sensitive areas. With circular and linear movements oriented towards your heart, rub vigorously the whole surface of your skin starting by the feet (including the soles), and then, going up along the front and the back of the legs by doing a kind of sweeping motion. After, brush the arms from the hands to the shoulders before doing your derriere and back. Brush a bit gentler on your front torso and neck.
Not only this will help the skin to detox naturally the two pounds of toxins that it has to evacuate each day, but dry brushing also rejuvenate the skin and help it look younger longer. It takes only a few minutes, and it can be pretty relaxing too.
