The daily gentle-detox practices are a perfect option to refresh the entire system, support the health, and ease the removal of waste and toxins from the body.
Practices like taking a detox bath, drinking fresh lemon juice or apple cider vinegar in warm water, doing yoga, eating healthy fruits and veggies, drinking freshly squeezed juices, boost energy, help digestion, reduce stress, and clear your mind.
The functions of the colon, skin, liver, kidneys, and lungs, are essential for our overall health. The skin is the largest body organ, so it needs to be detoxified regularly.
To cleanse the skin and make it glowing, healthy, and radiant, you should try the method of dry brushing.
The dry brush you need for this treatment is made up of stiff/dense, strong bristles, and natural fibers. The bristles should not be too soft, but they should not scratch the skin as well.
The practice of dry brushing offers numerous health benefits, and the following 8 are the most important ones:
Eliminates Dead Skin Cells
Every single day, we lose a million skin cells, so this technique will remove them from the surface, and thus will improve the appearance of the skin, and clear the clogged pores.
It increases the blood flow, so you help healing and the transport of nutrients throughout the body.
The elimination of dead cells will rejuvenate the skin and remove toxins from the body.
Energizing and Invigorating
It will energize the body and reduce stress, just like you had an intense workout.
The elimination of the dead skin cells will provide a healthy glow of the skin.
Stimulates the function of the lymphatic system
This method stimulates the lymphatic system or the network of vessels that transport metabolic waste and important molecules which are then cleansed by the organs of the lymphatic system: liver, spleen, thymus gland, lymph nodes, and tonsils.
When this system is sluggish, the entire body suffers, the immune system weakens, and this is a perfect environment for infections and attacks of foreign invaders. Therefore, the movement is crucial for the function of the lymphatic system.
Reduce and Prevent Cellulite
Dry brushing eliminates toxins from the body, and toxins are stored in fat. Therefore, dry brushing will reduce the appearance of cellulite and tighten the skin.
Super Soft Skin
As soon as the pores get unclogged from dirt and oil, the skin becomes silky. Moreover, dry brushing stimulates the hormone and oil producing glands, and the skin becomes incredibly soft.
This is how to make dry brushing a routine:
The best time to dry brush is after your morning shower, but make sure your skin is dry. This will provide plenty of energy, and prepare you for the upcoming day.
Then, while naked, start with the top of one foot, and go upwards all the way to the arm and chest, making gentle circular motions in the direction of your heart.
Repeat on the other side. Avoid any harsh movements, to prevent irritations and scratches. Don’t forget the back, and make sure you have dry brushed the entire body from the feet to the neck.
Unless you have a special facial brush, do not dry brush your face.
As soon as you are done dry brushing, have another shower to wash away the dead skin cells. For boosted blood circulation, the water should be anywhere from warm to hot.
You should repeat this treatment before every shower, or 3-4 times a week. Start now and enjoy its marvelous effects!
