Do You Know The Benefits Of Dry Skin Brushing?

 

Dry brushing the skin is beneficial for a number of reasons, and it is one of the best ways to prevent a variety of skin conditions. Dry brushing is nothing new; it has been practiced for hundreds of years throughout the world and became a popular spa treatment in Europe during the past three decades. Dry skin brushing helps to remove dead skin and improve circulation, the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine and Health Sciences website reports. The technique for dry skin brushing, as in massage, involves moving toward the heart. Performing dry skin brushing before taking a shower or bath allows you wash away dead skin. Dry skin brushing may benefit people who experience edema, pronounced water retention, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center’s website. The website suggests brushing the entire body, beginning at the feet, stroking in the direction of the heart.

One of the most beneficial aspects of dry brushing the skin is that the process helps the body slough off dead skin cells, making room for new skin cell growth. Dry brushing the skin also helps create a healthy glow and a smoother skin surface

As the brush strokes the skin to remove dead skin cells, the motion of the brush against the skin massages it and helps increase circulation. Improved circulation also enhances the flow of lymph and hormones through the skin, maintaining a healthy growth and development.

Hormones and oil glands are essential for optimal skin health and growth. Brushing brings fresh supplies of blood-bearing hormones and oils to the surface of the skin where they are needed for that healthy glow.

Dry brushing also helps firm the skin. The increased blood flow reduces the appearance of tired-looking skin, as well as cellulite. Dead skin cells are removed, making way for new, healthy, firm skin cells, offering a firmer, more youthful appearance.

Removing cellulite from the skin can be achieved through dry brushing the skin on a regular basis. By brushing the skin on a daily basis, you help your body slough off not only dead skin cells, but also rid your body of toxins and deposits that lay on the surface of the skin as they are excreted from your body. Along with a diet high in alkaline foods and daily exercise, dry brushing can be one of the best skin care methods to defy the appearance of aging.

Begin your dry skin brushing at your feet and legs, one at a time, from the soles of your feet up the back of your legs and then from the tops of your feet up the fronts of your thighs. Brush your back and buttocks. Stroke the brush up each hand and brush toward your shoulder in small, circular strokes, as though polishing your skin. Brush your shoulders, chest and sides in a circular motion, working toward your heart.

Don’t use a dry brush on your face. Rubbing this skin can increase wrinkles or break capillaries, the small blood vessel in your face.

Do I Need To Detox?

Detoxing doesn’t cure disease, but cleanses the body so it can heal itself.

In Don Colbert, M.D.’s book, Toxic Relief, he says detoxifying our bodies can help with “heart disease, cancer, strokes, diabetes, obesity, fatigue, memory loss, premature aging, skin disorders, arthritis, hormone imbalances, chronic fatigue, anxiety, and emotional disorders.” He also says “Deep cleansing your body right down to the cellular level will renew your vitality, restore your energy, reclaim your health, shed toxic fat, lengthen your life and give you a healthy glow you haven’t had in years.”

So why wait until you are sick to start thinking about detoxification and living a healthier life?
