Spring Clean Your Skin With Dry Skin Brushing
The skin is our body’s largest organ and essential in helping to eliminate toxins and absorb moisture.
Dry skin brushing is a technique that has been used for centuries to help increase circulation, remove dead skin cells, increase cell renewal, activate the lymphatic system to support immune function, and take stress off of our internal organs of detoxification.
This rejuvenating exercise can be easily done at home to spring clean your skin and promote a healthy glow. Using a natural bristle brush, work your way up from your hands and feet towards your heart, brushing in small circles, and finishing with your chest and back. On your face, you can use a lighter brush or a course, natural fiber cloth. Inflammatory skin conditions such as acne and eczema can benefit from dry skin brushing, however affected areas should be avoided. Skin brushing should be done on dry skin only, and followed by a shower.
