Health Benefits of Dry Brushing

Dry brushing has many wonderful health benefits and can easily become a relaxing part of your morning or evening routine. I like to leave my dry brush sitting out on my bathroom counter as a reminder to use it each day. You may be thinking that you do not need to add anything else to your daily routine, but it only takes 5 minutes and the benefits are worth it!

Dry brushing helps to exfoliate your skin, and encouraged new skin cell renewal, which results in smoother, brighter skin.  It also increases circulation in your skin, which reduces the appearance of cellulite. Dry brushing stimulates your lymphatic system, which is responsible for removing toxins from your body. 

Are you interested in giving it a try? Here are some simple instructions to get you started!

Begin with dry skin, before your shower or bath.

Start at your ankles and continue to move upward towards the heart. 

Move your brush in gentle circular upward motions.

Move from your ankles up to your legs, stomach, back, and arms. Brushing gently on sensitive skin areas such as your chest or breasts. Avoid brushing any irritated skin areas you may have. 

Shower to remove any dead skin and apply a moisturizer after. I love coconut oil , and it is great for adding your favorite essential oil.
