Want a great way to get ready for bathing suit season? Then you might want to consider dry skin brushing.
All you need is a natural bristle shower brush. Often found in the personal care section of natural product stores or drugstores, it can do more for you than just scrub your back. Simply remove the long wooden handle and you’ve got the perfect hand-held tool for a DIY spa treatment at home! Learn how to dry skin brush by checking out this post.
What’s so great about it you may ask? Well, it will tone your skin, reduce cellulite, and more! Check out the many amazing therapeutic benefits of this easy treatment:
Supports the Circulatory System
As a form of massage therapy, dry skin brushing helps relax muscles since you are touching upon all the nerve points in your body. So it can truly leave you feeling better! It not only removes dead skin cells, but it also stimulates circulation to the skin, organs, and glands throughout your body. This is important since you are supporting your circulatory system by bringing vital oxygen and nutrients to every cell in your body.
Detoxifies and Aids Cellulite Reduction
It’s also a great treatment to do to aid “spring cleaning” or detoxing. Dry skin brushing stimulates the lymphatic system (essentially our body’s “waste disposal” system) and improves the flow of lymph, which helps clear the toxins out of our body, according to this American Holistic Health Association article. Because toxins are imbedded in our cellulite tissue, it thereby helps with cellulite reduction!
Improves Skin Appearance
Dry skin brushing improves the appearance of the skin by making it toner, firmer, and moister by increasing the production of collagen and elastin fibers, tonifying the muscles, and stimulating the sweat and oil glands (good for sweating those toxins out!).
Supports the Immune System
By activating and increasing white blood cells, dry skin brushing supports your immune system. So if you’ve had a long winter of battling colds and the flu or just feeling plain sluggish, dry skin brushing can be the perfect boost to your system along with a holistic approach, such as going for walks in nature, meditating, distilling some immune-boosting essential oils, and eating foods that help you fight off disease, such as blueberries and grapes.
