BODY BRUSHING FOR BEAUTIFUL SKIN AND CIRCULATION
Body Brushing is a traditional technique to help remove dead skin build-up and stimulate the lymphatic system, to help eliminate waste. Experts claim that it can even dissolve cellulite and prevent premature ageing while obtaining brighter, smoother, softer looking skin.
Our skin is the largest waste elimination organ in the body. Body brushing exfoliates the skin and removes dead skin cells that may be clogging up pores and interfering with toxin elimination. This process also assists with the prevention of dry skin, as it stimulates sebum secretion from the sebaceous glands, leading to softer, lustrous skin.
How do you do it? As a general rule, stroke the brush in one upward movement towards the major lymph nodes in the body, such as the groin, armpits and base of neck.
A couple of exceptions to this rule is that you can brush back and forth between the fingers and toes and use small circular strokes in a clockwise direction on the stomach, following the movement of the gut.
Work from left to right, which is the natural direction when massaging the body. Aim for three to five minutes a day.
It's the perfect time to start body brushing, while you are detoxing and transitioning from winter to spring.
