Let’s talk about the increased popularity of dry brushing.
Brushing skin daily with a soft but firm brush is said to boost circulation, sweep away dead skin cells, stimulates lymph flow, improve digestion, improve the appearance of cellulite, and help the cells and body in general remove waste.
Pretty great, isn’t it?
Of all these incredible benefits, stimulating the lymphatic system is at the core. The lymphatic system is responsible for collecting nutrient-rich fluids, transporting them to the blood, and eliminating the waste our cells produce. If it becomes congested, it can lead to a build-up of toxins, causing inflammation and illness. Dry brushing stimulates the lymphatic system as it stimulates and invigorates the skin.
“I dry brush every day. I love it. I notice the improvement of my overall skin texture, I can feel the increase in circulation, and it really does reduce the appearance of cellulite!”
– Mimi Bourgeault, Owner of Pure Spa
Dry brushing is easy to incorporate into your routine. Most experts recommend dry brushing in the morning, rather than before bed, due to its energizing qualities. “Shower after skin brushing,” says Mimi, “then apply massage oil or body lotion.”
To do it yourself, start at your feet and hands and brush towards the heart. Use firm, small strokes upwards, or work in a circular motion. For the stomach, work in a counterclockwise pattern. Be careful not to press too hard. Any kind of brushing or exfoliation should be gentle – never too harsh so as not to break the skin.
