trapped as it’s working to detox your body
exfoliates away dead skin
stimulates the lymph system
may help reduce cellulite
helps to reduce ingrown hairs
leaves skin feeling smoother and softer
According to the Cleveland Clinic:
The mechanical action of dry brushing is wonderful for exfoliating dry winter skin. It also helps detoxify by increasing blood circulation and promoting lymph flow/drainage. Dry brushing unclogs pores in the exfoliation process. It also stimulates your nervous system, which can make you feel invigorated afterward.
Dry brushing before you get in the shower is a great way to lightly exfoliate the skin and leave it looking glowing and bright! Lock in your glow and nourish your skin with a light natural moisturizer or body oil after showering.
