Brush Your Body- How Dry Brushing Improves Skin Health

leafYou brush your teeth to promote good oral health but did you know that brushing your body is just as important and effective in promoting healthy skin?  It is actually an ancient health practice and beauty technique in many cultures including the Chinese, Japanese, Russians, Greeks, Scandinavians, and Native Americans. Dry brushing stimulates the lymphatic system which is responsible for collecting, transporting to the blood, and eliminating the waste our cells produce. Dry skin is not only a symptom of our external environment but also could indicate that your lymphatic system is congested. This can lead to a build-up of toxins, causing inflammation and illness.  Stimulating your lympahtic system improves circulation which creates healthier skin and overall better health.  The benefits of dry brushing include:

  • Reduces Cellulite
  • Improves Immune Health
  • Reduces Inflammation
  • Increases Circulation
  • Exfoliates and Detoxes the Skin
  • Improves Organ Function
  • Higher Energy Levels

Incorporating dry brushing into your daily hygiene practice once or twice daily will boost circulation and stimulate lymph nodes resulting in improved health. After a few weeks of dry brushing followed by an amazing exfoliating product I had less cellulite and glowing skin and continue to use these 2 strategies daily. Antioxidant rich Sugar Body Scrub by BeautyCounter is made with brown sugar to buff away dull skin, and mineral-rich evening primrose, sweet almond, apricot kernel, and sunflower oils to leave skin looking supple and smooth. DRY RUB and BODY SCRUB are all you need!

My “go-to” products are VITALITY Dry Body Brush followed by BeautyCounter’s Sugar Body Scrub.
