How to Practice Daily Dry Skin Brushing To Detox Lymph
Dry skin brushing means to brush the skin when it’s dry. Brushing the skin in the shower is wet skin brushing. Using a loofa in the shower will not give the same effect because once the skin cells are wet, you’re essentially pushing all the dead skin cells around over the surface of your skin.
Dry skin brushing adds just the right amount of pressure to move the lymph while at the same time flaking any dead skin cells off of the skin. Many people will say that the skin actually becomes more clean from dry skin brushing than from taking a shower!
Less than 5 minutes a day, before you shower in the morning and you can to skin brushing. Brushing the lymph will stimulate circulation and this can also make you feel more awake and alert for the day.
Some people like to dry skin brush, then shower and apply organic cold pressed sesame oil before bed to calm the nervous system and make falling asleep easier.
Always use a natural bristle brush. Nylon brushes will scratch the skin. A natural bristle brush can be found in any health food store, or ordered online. Most will also come with a handle for brushing the skin on the back.
Brush the skin with a reasonable amount of pressure, but not too strong. Start at the feet using short to medium strokes and always brush towards the heart. You can brush your arms, torso, back and chest but avoid sensitive areas like the breasts and face.
