What else can I do to bring out my best? Have you tried dry-brushing? Dry brushing has many potential benefits from smoother skin to helping with lymphatic drainage. Dry brushing is precisely what it sounds like, brushing the skin in a particular pattern with a dry brush, usually before showering. The skin is typically brushed toward the heart, starting at the feet and hands and brushed toward the chest. Supporters of dry brushing claim that it can stimulate the lymph system, help the body rid itself of toxins, and increase energy circulation. Even dermatologists agree that gently brushing the skin does have exfoliating benefits and may stimulate the body in a way similar to massage, which certainly does have well-documented benefits. One would use a firm, natural bristle brush with a handle and replace it every 6-1 2 months as the bristles eventually wear out. It’s also recommended to wash the brush every few weeks to remove dead skin cells.

Did you know?

Up to 60% of the adult body is water! Recommendations are to drink 8-1 0 glasses of water per day. Water keeps your skin fresh, young, and glowing, and it removes toxic material from your body. A well-hydrated body works more efficiently to keep you healthy and to keep illnesses and ailments away.
