Exfoliating your skin is imperative to achieve a clear, glowing and healthy complexion. A technique called “dry skin brushing” should be introduced into your skin care routine.

Dry skin brushing is a great way to maintain healthy skin, but also helps you maintain a healthy body. Start your morning off with some rejuvenation to jump-start your day. Here are five more great benefits to dry brushing your skin:

-Dry skin brushing helps to shed dead skin cells, which can help improve skin texture and cell renewal.

– It helps to tighten the skin because it increases the flow of blood. Increasing the circulation to the skin can also help lessen the appearance of cellulite.

– Dry skin brushing helps with muscle tone and more even distribution of fat deposits.

– Dry skin brushing stimulates the lymph canals to drain toxic mucoid matter into the colon, thereby purifying the entire system. This enables the lymph to perform its house-cleaning duties by keeping the blood and other vital tissues detoxified.

– Dry skin brushing also rejuvenates the nervous system by stimulating nerve endings in the skin.

All you need to get started is a natural, not synthetic, bristle brush with a long handle so you are able to reach all areas of your body. Here’s how to do it:

1. Skin brushing should be performed prior to your bath or shower and your body should be completely dry with no clothing.

2. Brush your skin in long, sweeping strokes, brushing toward the heart (bottom of your feet upwards, hands to shoulders, torso upward, etc.) in a circular motion. Use a firm yet gentle pressure, it should feel good, not painful.

3. After you are finished brushing, rinse off in the shower, alternating temperatures of the water from warm to cool to further invigorate the skin and stimulate blood circulation.

4. Dry your body off and massage any pure plant oil into your skin such as almond, jojoba or coconut.

5. Clean the brush using soap and water once a week and let it dry thoroughly.
