Dry Skin Brushing For Immune Health

Dry Brushing

It is well known that the skin is the largest organ in the body, and is responsible for one-fourth of the body’s detoxification each day, also making it one of the most important elimination organs. Toxicity can gather beneath the skin’s surface from such common influences such as improper pH levels in soaps, skin creams, antiperspirants, and foods.  Plus synthetic fibers worn next to the skin with any of them may contribute to a variety of skin problems and conditions.

When you do skin brushing, you help your lymph system to clean itself of the toxins that collect in the lymph glands. You use a simple technique to improve the surface circulation on the skin and keep the pores of the skin open, encouraging your body’s discharge of metabolic wastes, resulting in an improved ability to combat bacteria, while helping your skin to look and feel healthier and more resilient.  Skin brushing is a perfect self-care treatment.  You may use either a body brush or spa gloves. For best results, always wash the brush or gloves after each use. This is an excellent treatment to do right before an epsom salt bath.

Benefits:

  • Tightens skin
  • Helps digestion
  • Reduces cellulite
  • Stimulates circulation
  • Increases cell renewal
  • Cleans lymphatic system
  • Removes dead skin layers
  • Strengthens immune system

How to dry brush:

  • Begin with your feet and brush vigorously in circular motions.
  • Continue brushing up your legs.
  • Proceed to your hands and arms.
  • Brush your entire back and abdomen area, shoulders and neck.
  • Use circular counter-clockwise strokes on the abdomen.
  • Lightly brush the breasts, avoiding the nipples.
  • Brush upwards on the back and down from the neck. Better yet, have a friend, spouse or family member brush your back.

This month’s self-care promo, Shirodhara, is both grounding and luxurious. Shiro in Sanskrit means head, and Dhara means flow. This treatment begins with gentle massage of your hands and feet, then warm oil is poured over your forehead and scalp. Most people deeply relax and fall asleep during their session.
