Dry Skin Brushing


Dry-Skin-BrushingDry skin brushing is a big part of detoxing properly. We eliminate up to 2 pounds of metabolic wastes and toxins per day through our skin.  The advantages of dry skin brushing include;

  • elimates dead skin cells
  • improves circulation
  • helps get the lymphatic system moving
  • keeps skin looking fresh and vibrant

There are various ‘systems’ of body brushing, but it’s important to;

  • always brush towards the heart
  • use a dry (natural) brush before showering
  • use common sense (don´t brush over cuts, varicose veins and that sort of thing)
  • wash and sun dry your brush once a week.
  • brush 2 – 7 days per week

I found a great video on Green Smoothie Girl demonstrating Dr. Berwosky’s brushing system. They’ve also got a step-by-step chart.
