Do you ever find that when you first learn about something intriguing, you tend to hear about it over and over and over again?
This is what happened with me and the dry brush.
About a year ago, some of my spin friends and I walked into our favorite juice bar after class. The owner introduced us to the dry brush – claiming it helped rid your body of toxins.
I figured he was just trying to sell us on the product, but for some reason the concept resonated with me.
Now this thing is everywhere. All my favorite health bloggers are raving about it. So, naturally I had to give it a try.
I’ve been dry brushing about a month now and I am obsessed. It’s now part of my daily morning routine. Ummm… anything that will improve my skin/health/pores/cellulite??? I’m down x 1000.
+ stimulates the lymphatic system & removes toxins
+ improves circulation, also aiding in detoxification
+ improves the immune system
+ reduces and prevents cellulite by stimulating fat deposits
+ stimulates nerve endings, improving the nervous system
+ removes dead skin & eliminates clogged pores
How to Dry Brush:
**It’s best to dry brush first thing in the morning, before getting into the shower. That way you can wash away all the dead skin cells.
+ Start at your feet and gently brush your skin in a circular motion, working your way upward toward your heart
+ Focus on areas where you have concentrated lymph nodes (back of knees, bikini line, inner arm, arm pit)
+ When you get to your chest, move away from your heart towards your underarms to flush the toxins outward
+ Do not dry brush your face or neck
I bought my dry brush on amazon here for about 10 bucks.
