DRY BRUSHING 101

DRY BRUSHING 101

The lymphatic system is extremely important for the human body. It works to support our immune system and helps nourish and cleanse our cells. Lymph fluid, which is what runs throughout your lymphatic system, doesn’t circulate like blood. Instead, it moves throughout the body with small muscle movements. If you have an inactive lifestyle or are sedentary with work for long periods of time, the lymph fluid can build up. Drybrushing to the rescue. 

The ancient technique of drybrush is one of the simplest and most effective practices for the health of the skin and body. While dry brushing leads to softer, glowing skin, its benefits go more than skin deep. It stimulates lymphatic drainage, boosts circulation and exfoliates the skin, increasing its elasticity and tone and even minimizing the appearance of cellulite.

Dry brushing is done prior to showering, removing dead skin cells so that new ones can be formed. Dry brushing also helps the body breathe. Absorb oxygen and show off toxins. The Increased circulation also brings blood to the skin’s surface, tightening ti and giving it a natural golden glow, helping you to look years younger. 

 

THE METHOD

  1. Before you shower, use a natural bristle brush (We love TERRA TORY). Start at your feet, moving upwards toward your torso. Always move toward your heart and brush your entire body, not forgetting the nooks and crannies, including between the toes and ears. 
  2. Add a couple drops of your favorite essential oil or body oil to your brush for an enhanced experience. Add one to two drops of this oil blend to the palm of your hand and glide your dry brush over the palms to saturate the bristles before dry brushing.


After dry brushing, follow your usual process of bathing, and be sure to nourish/moisturize thoroughly. The exfoliating effects of dry brushing allows body lotions and oils to penetrate the skin more effectively. And hydrating with your favorite body cream or oil after dry brushing will further support circulation, reduce stress and let you bask in even more self love. We love incorporating dry brushing every morning, as a great way to wake up!

I’ve been dry brushing for years. It does in fact leave your skin look ing and feeling incredible. It also cleanses the lymphatic system. Unfortunately the blogger gave the incorrect way to do so. One must always start with a dry brush and body. Using medium to light pressure, use upward strokes starting on the LEFT side of the body at the finger tips and working up the arm up ward toward the heart. Stop at the underarm and go eight stokes in a circle then eight strokes in reverse circkes.. Same. Under left beast. Not over beast. Upward eight strokes in the side. Circle belly button in small clockwise circles getting larger as you clobber the entire stomach. Bend left leg and circle eight times eight where the groin meets the inner thigh then reverse the circle strokes eight times. Upward stroke the front of thigh, back of thigh, stroke knee back and forth, stone upward lower leg, feet, under feet, back of lower leg, upward of thigh over buttocks, as much off back as you can. DO THE SAME WITH EIGHT SIDE minus STOMACH. This technique truly drains the lymphatic system. NAMASTE
