Dry Skin Brushing

The skin is one of the most important elimination organs in the body .Dry brushing supports skin renewal, stimulates the lymphatic system (which positively affects the nervous, immune, and digestive systems), The network of vessels in the lymphatic system acts as a filtration system throughout the body, cleaning up by products of metabolism, dead cells, and other waste material, returning fluids and materials to the bloodstream where they can be processed or eliminated. Dry skin brushing is a powerful, simple process for supporting a healthy lymphatic system and healthy skin.

Tips for Skin Brushing

Make sure the brush you use has natural bristles. You should ideally dry skin brush before every shower

I believe you should start the dry skin brushing session by starting at the area around your armpits, then brush your stomach in a clockwise circle, then brush your upper leg area.  This stimulates the areas closest to the main lymph nodes. Then, to keep it simple, you can start at you feet and sweep up the legs in long, light brisk movements. Brush your arms with an upward motion, moving towards the heart  All skin brushing movements should be towards the heart, to encourage the return of blood and encourage lymphatic flow.

Pay particular attention to the cellulite-prone areas like your thighs... The whole process should take two to five minutes.
