I recently found an interest in dry body brushing and decided to try it for myself. This treatment has been around for thousands of years and has been proven over again to be highly beneficial for the body. The most beneficial part is that you help stimulate the lymphatic system and therefore help your body detoxify. Hence, it will help diminish any cellulite you may have since cellulite is stuck toxins in your body that have not been drained out and end up sitting in fat cells. That’s when you see those unwanted lumpy areas on your body. Most common areas are thighs and the back of the legs. Luckily, in addition to exercise and a clean, nutritious diet, dry body brushing helps to get rid of those stagnant toxins and aids your body to eliminate them. This treatment should be incorporated into your daily routine because it truly is life changing and yet so simple. You can buy any type of body brush at your local beauty store or even pharmacy. It can be with a handle (which is easier to get your back) or without a handle but both need to have soft bristles. Before you shower do a quick 3-minute body brushing session, brushing several times in every area even overlapping. Start at your feet brushing upwards toward your heart moving in long, sweeping motions. Remember to always brush toward your heart, very important. Then wash off any dried dead skin and finish off by applying a moisturizing oil such as coconut or almond oil. In no time you will unquestionably start to feel and see the difference in yourself. Inexpensive and proven to show results, this little beauty addition to your daily routine will not be regretted. Here are some additional lovely benefits of dry body brushing:
- Clearer and softer skin
- Weight Loss
- Firmer skin
- Unclogs pores
- Exfoliates dead skin
- Stimulates the Lymphatic system
So let’s go beauties! Time to dry brush!
