We've all heard that brushing is beneficial to the hair, but what about brushing your skin?
Dry brushing, also known as body brushing or skin brushing, is a technique that offers many health benefits. The skin is the largest organ in the body, and many toxins and impurities are released through the skin. Dry brushing benefits the skin by exfoliating and removing dead, dry skin cells, helping to keep the pores open, eliminating toxins and giving the skin a fresher and younger appearance.Dry brushing stimulates circulation of both the blood and the lymph. The lymphatic system plays an important role in the body by assisting the immune system to remove disease-causing pathogens and clearing out waste and toxins. By promoting the flow of lymph through the body, the immune system is strengthened. Dry brushing also increases blood flow and invigorates the nervous system, helping to relieve stress.Because it improves circulation and removes toxins, as well as helping to distribute fat more evenly, dry brushing may help to reduce the appearance of cellulite, which is believed to be caused by a buildup of toxins in the fatty tissue beneath the skin.
The brush is a total length of 18 inches.
