BENEFITS: Dry Skin Brushing is a wonderful, revitalizing health and
beauty aid. Removing the top layer of dead skin and stimulating the
circulation of blood feeding the skin are essential for maintaining
youthful, glowing and supple skin. Skin Brushing has been used
throughout the world for centuries, and is making its way back into
popularity. Dry skin brushing is one of the best ways to cleanse the
skin without removing the protective mantle of acid and oils. It
gently and effectively removes the top layer of dead skin cells with
its build-up of dirt and acid, and deeply cleanses the pores.
Skin brushing is one of the most powerful ways to cleanse the
lymphatic system. Waste material is carried away from the cells by
the blood and the lymph. Skin brushing stimulates the release of this
material from the cells near the surface of the body. Eventually,
most of the toxins along with their carrier cells, primarily
lymphocytes, find their way to the colon for elimination.
Skin brushing is also used by beauty salons as part of a program for
Dry Skin Brushing is most effective with an all-natural vegetable fiber
brush [I found mine in Target but I'm sure they are online as well as
in your local health food markets]. Make sure the brush isn't made of
synthetic fiber since this can irritate the skin. A long handle is
also helpful for reaching the back and entire body.
SUGGESTED USE: The best time to skin brush is right before your
shower or bath. Most health experts recommend brushing when the skin
is dry for best results. If you have poison ivy, skin rashes,
infections or inflammatory problems such as psoriasis, do not brush
that part of the skin.
Begin with very gentle strokes and adapt the intensity of the
brushing to match the sensitivity of your skin. There are different
theories about the most effective method for brushing the skin. Here
is a simple method that works.
The basic principle is to brush from the outermost points of the body
(hands and feet) towards the center. Start by brushing your feet and
up your legs with smooth gentle strokes. Brush your hands and up your
arms. Brush across your upper back and down the front and back of the
torso. Cover the entire surface of the skin except for the more
tender skin of the face and breasts.
A slight flush due to increased blood circulation is normal, and
shows that your skin brushing is working. Be careful not to brush so
hard that your skin turns bright red.
The total process takes only two or three minutes. When you are
finished, step into your bath or shower. You will feel an
invigorating, tingling sensation over your entire body.
