But let me tell you, it takes less than 5 minutes of your time before hitting the shower and has major effects on overall health. Believe me.
I was in the same zone a few months ago. I didn’t want to add another thing to my busy morning schedule. But come on what’s 5 minutes of your time a day to keep your skin healthy, soft, and cellulite free.
No more expensive treatments and not only your skin but entire body will take the benefit of this easy before-shower-routine.
How To Dry Brush
The only thing you have to buy is a natural soft bristle brush. Before you hit the shower or bath, start brushing your skin in long, gentle strokes toward your heart. Start with your feet and work your way up. Take a shower after brushing and apply a moisturizing oil or lotion.
Avoid dry brushing over wounds, rashes, and cuts.
Benefits Of Dry Skin Brushing
1. Stimulate Lymphatic System
Dry brushing stimulates the lymphatic system to eliminate more toxic waste. Toxin build-ups can cause inflammation and disease.
Dry brushing is the best way to remove dead skin cells and other debris from the surface of your skin. It encourages cell renewal, unclogs pores, and softens, tightens, and rejuvenate your skin.
3. Improve Blood Circulation
Not only does dry brushing stimulate your lymphatic system to work harder and eliminate more toxins, but it also improves blood circulation.
4. Reduce Cellulite
Dry skin brushing helps to soften hard fat deposits under your skin. An increased blood and lymph flow will not only enable your body to remove more toxins, but I can reduce the appearance of cellulite as well. Cellulite is actually a build-up of toxic waste in your fat cells.
5. Relief Stress
Dry skin brushing feels great and stimulates your nerve endings. It reduces muscle tension, calms your mind, and relieves stress.
