The Benefits of Dry Brushing


.


The skin is the largest organ in the body and consists of numerous sweat glands, blood vessels and nerve endings. Although it protects us from the elements, our skin also aids in waste removal, digestion and circulation. Over time, skin can change or become damaged due to a variety of factors. Serums, creams and cleansers do a lot to keep skin healthy, glowing and blemish-free, but dry brushing can benefit not only skin health, but overall health as well. 

History of Dry Brushing

Dry skin brushing has been practiced by many cultures for centuries, from ancient Greeks to Native Americans, to remove dead skin. In ancient Ayurvedic medicine, dry brushing (garshana) was completed every morning, prior to bathing, to stimulate blood circulation.

Dry Brushing Benefits

Detox your body from the outside-in while keeping skin healthy, radiant and blemish-free with one of the oldest beauty secrets around. Check out some of the perks you may see after adding regular dry brushing into your natural skin care routine.

Super-Soft Skin: Dry brushing exfoliates and eliminates dead skin cells, leaving skin feeling soft and helping the skin renewal process.



Tone and Tighten: The motions of dry brushing help distribute fatty deposits to tone the muscles and tissues below the skin’s surface. These same motions boost circulation creating supple, youthful-looking skin. The circular motions may also reduce the appearance of cellulite.
