You can refresh your entire system and support your health with gentle-detox practices.
Practices like drinking fresh lemon juice, apple cider vinegar in warm water, taking a detox bath, eating healthy vegetables and fruits and drinking freshly squeezed juices can boost your energy, reduce stress, clear your mind and help your digestion.
The proper functioning of our liver, kidneys, lungs, colon and skin are very important for our overall health. Plus, the skin is the largest organ of the human body and it needs to be detoxified regularly.
In order to make your skin radiant and healthy, you should definitely try the method of dry brushing. The most important thing of the whole treatment is the brush, and it needs to be made of dense/stiff bristles and natural fibers. Be careful when choosing the brush because the bristles should not scratch your skin but they should not be too soft.
The most important benefits of dry brushing are:
Eliminates dead skin cells
Each individual loses a million skin cells every day, and this technique will remove those skin cells from the surface of the skin, improving the appearance and it will also clear the clogged pores.
Dry brushing will increase your blood flow and it will help you transport the nutrients throughout the body.
Because it eliminates the dead skin cells, it will remove the toxins from the body and it will rejuvenate your skin.
Invigorating and energizing
This method will energize your body and it will reduce stress. It works in a similar way as an intense workout.
Stimulates the function of the lymphatic system
This technique will stimulate your lymphatic system that can transport the important molecules and the metabolic waste which are cleansed by the organs like spleen, lymph nodes, liver, thymus gland and tonsils.
The entire body suffers when your system is sluggish and it will weaken your immune system. This makes your body a perfect environment for attacks from the outside and infections.
Prevents and reduces cellulite
Dry brushing will eliminate the toxins that are stored in the fat, from your body. This means that it will tighten your skin and it will reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Super soft skin
Your skin will become silky when the pores get unclogged from the oil and dirt. What is more, this technique will stimulate the glands that produce oil and hormones, which will make your skin very soft.
The dry brushing routine:
The best time to apply this technique is in the mornings, after your shower. You need to make sure that your skin is dry. This process will prepare you for your day and your upcoming tasks, by giving you tons of energy.
While naked, start brushing the top of one foot and then go up all the way to your chest and arm. Brush in circular motions in the direction of the heart.
Then, repeat the same process on the other side. You need to avoid making harsh movements, in order to prevent scratches and irritations. Never forget to brush your back, but also never brush your face.
When you are done with the process of dry brushing, go and take another shower to wash away the skin cells. If you want to further boost your blood circulation, make the water from warm to hot.
Repeat this treatment before showering, or up to four times a week.
