Heard about dry skin brushing before but are unsure about what it is all about? Our Naturopath Tip this week focuses on the benefits of Dry Brushing not only for your skin but for your overall health and why you should get brushing and incorporate it into your daily routine!

Dry skin brushing has a number of amazing benefits which include reducing cellulite, increasing circulation, stimulating your lymphatic system, exfoliating skin, relieving stress and improving digestion and kidney function.

Once added into your daily routine, a quick 5 minutes morning and preferably again at night can leave you feeling somehow relaxed but invigorated at the same time.

Stimulating the skin with a natural bristle brush promotes waste removal through the largest organ in your body, which can be clogged with toxins and dead skin cells and therefore struggles to efficiently carry out this vital function.

Your lymphatic system lies just beneath the skin’s surface and needs to be stimulated and pumped through exercise and skin brushing to detox and improve immunity. Weight bearing exercise, especially jogging or bouncing on a rebounder, helps lymphatic drainage transport waste from your tissues to your blood for elimination.

Dry skin brushing can help with digestion and kidney function when it aids the body to shed excess water and toxins. It exfoliates skin, helping to unclog pores and excrete toxins trapped under the skin, which is the cause of cellulite. It becomes addictive because it feels so good, reduces muscle tension and calms the mind.

Always brush towards the heart with a high quality brush made from natural bristles with a long handle so you can reach areas of your back. Avoid sun burnt skin and sensitive areas such as varicose veins. Brush in the morning then jump into a shower alternating hot and cold water to stimulate circulation. Enjoy!
