Dry brushing? Yes, there are numerous benefits, but we feel that there are still many questions about this ritual. It is such an accessible and simple gesture that can help relieve feelings of fatigue and swellingafter too many hours on your feet toning the skin and even prevent the appearance of cellulite.
Adding this small gesture to your routine will make all the difference!
WHY BRUSH YOUR BODY DRY?
If you are a practical woman, you will love this technique, because you will be detoxifying your body and exfoliating your skin at the same time. We don't always have time to do a massage and treat our skin, so a tool that can do both is a jackpot!
In addition to all the benefits listed, it's also a great way to activate circulation, remove dead skin cells, detoxify your system, and keep your skin soft and firm. You'll be doing a lymphatic drainage at home and unclogging your pores to make it easier to flush out toxins. As a bonus skin becomes really soft and ready to receive hydration.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Our brushes are made of natural bristles that massage the body by activating blood flow and collagen production. These bristles, although soft, have just the right hardness to remove dead skin at the same time. By repeating the movements "brushing" the body, you will also be increasing the firmness of the skin (even in the most "problematic" areas).
HOW DO I USE IT?
Preferably brush your body first thing in the morning, before showering and ALWAYS with dry skin.
Always brush from the bottom up (from the extremities), towards the heart.
Start this ritual starting at your feet and work your way up your legs and thighs, always in upward movements
Then massage your belly in circular movements, which will stimulate the digestive system, moving on to the buttocks and back, in upward movements from the lumbar area to below the neck.
Next, brush your arms from your hands to your shoulders. Don't forget the armpit area, a super important point of the lymphatic system.
Finally, slide the brush from the neck to the shoulders on both sides, and then massage the neck of the chest.
Finish off with a shower with our gelAfterwards, rinse your body with cold water to stimulate blood circulation, before moisturizing well. Apply body oil Revitalizes body oil to deeply moisturize and firm the skin.
Do this ritual once or twice a week and let me know the differences you feel!
Why does it work so well?
A skin receives one third of the body's total blood circulation. When the liver is not functioning properly and we have excess toxins in the blood, it is the skin that is in charge of expelling this excess. It is responsible for 25% of our natural detoxification capacity. The skin is also the first organ to signal imbalances and deficiencies. Therefore, it is very important that we take care of it, beyond moisturizing the skin on our face and body when we remember.
There are lots of external benefits that you will automatically notice. Much smoother skin, prevention of cellulite and sagging, and less ingrown hairs are some of them. But the great power of dry brushing is really in the benefits for the inside of your body.
By brushing your body, stimulates the lymphatic system, system, responsible for removing toxins from the body. When congested, it accumulates toxins, leaving it more prone to developing inflammation. It also activates blood circulation, so I recommend it to all women who spend hours on their feet during the day! By regenerating skin cells and freeing up pores, your largest organ is much freer to perform its protective functions.
The kidneys are also stimulated with this practice and it is extremely important that they are, as they work in the natural detoxification process of the body. I have already told you here about how to stress, lack of sleep and poor eating habits can overload the adrenal glands and as a balanced diet can help reverse this condition - and the power of superfoods to see improvements.
