Dry Skin Brushing

dry skin brushing

We all know our skin is the largest organ of the body, and it plays a vital role in eliminating toxins and built up waste. I have recently read that healthy skin eliminates about a half a kilogram of waste products every day! What! Poor circulation can cause clogged pores (clogged with dead skin cells and other debris), in which can remain in the body. 

This is where dry skin brushing can assist! It helps exfoliate and invigorate the skin, increases blood flow to the area, bringing with it nourishment and oxygen. It prevents and reduces cellulite as it aids in the removal of accumulated toxins under the skin, which can cause that dimpled appearance. Not only does it help increase circulation and the elimination of toxins, but it will also help your skin look and feel healthier!

    To increase the detoxification effects, you can add a few drops of grapefruit essential oil with some coconut oil. Grapefruit has such an invigorating aroma and is renowned for cleansing and purifying. Its also great for your skin and metabolism.
