Body Brushing

Body brushing is the ultimate simple way to detox and awaken your skin. Dry brushing has many benefits and has been used for hundreds of years to help boost blood circulation and promote lymph flow and drainage. The concept of dry-brushing is really simple, it should be done each morning before you shower, using a hard dry brush using up strokes starting at the toes working up.

What are the Benefits

There are many health benefits associated with body brushing. Your skin is your largest organ and plays an important role in helping to remove toxins from the body. For this reason, it is important that the upper layer of the skin (the epidermis) is regularly cleared of dead skin cells which block pores and cause the skin to become congested. Other benefits include - 

  • Removing dead skin cells, this will helps unclog blocked pores which will help prevent ingrown hairs

  • It can help you tone up your skin without breaking a sweat 

  • An increase in circulation will help to banish the Orange Peel look

  • It stimulates your lymphatic system which can boost your immune system

  • It helps deliver oxygen to cells witch will help increases energy

How to guide 

The best time to body brush is before as shower (so you can wash away the dead skin after)

It's always best to start from your feet and work up, to help with circulation you should always brush in the direction of your heart apart from the stomach which should be massage in a clockwise motion to aid with digestion.

You can always use a cellulite massage on areas of specific concern.
