Dry skin brushing is the single most important therapy you can add to your detox program or your daily routine. Your skin being your largest organ of elimination releases a pound of waste each day. It is the first organ to show symptoms of imbalance and toxicity. If your skin cannot efficiently release the toxins, you may experience rashes, acne, hives, itchiness, body odor, or even eczema and psoriasis. Dead skin cells, excreted wastes and external pollution which is including dirt and residue from skin care products, can build up and clog your pores. Clogged pores inhibit your skin from effectively releasing toxins. Therefore Dry Brushing used daily can help to eliminate toxins that are either clogged or released to the skin surface.
Benefits of Dry Skin Brushing – More than a Beauty Treatment!
Everyone knows that exfoliation the skin creates radiant and vibrant looking skin. But it is also an essential tool for good circulation, strengthening the immune system, stimulating the nervous system, toning the muscles and improving digestion.
Here is a list of the many inspiring benefits of dry skin brushing:
- Stimulates blood and lymph flow. The lymph flows outside of the circulatory system to bathe, cleanse and restore all of our cells. If we don’t move the lymph we end up with swollen tissues, particularly in the ankles. Exercise, massage and skin brushing help to speed the process and clear the lymphatic system.
- Removes dead skin cells. Dry skin is a sign of detoxification. It is important to remove the dead cells to keep from clogging the system. This will also improve skin texture and renew the skin cells.
- Reduces cellulite. It requires daily brushing for several months to start to see results. When you massage and stimulate the skin it begins to break up the toxic deposits of stored fatty tissues that pucker the overlying skin into cellulite. Connective tissue massage and releasing stored emotions are also good treatments for cellulite. At the Spa at Four Seasons we have a Resculpting Treatment that includes Dry Brushing and of course our wonderful products from The Organic Pharmacy.
Maybe one of the most important benefits of this practice is purely the pleasure of nurturing your body. Learning to love your body is essential for weight loss and the healing of any bodily “dis-ease.” Spend this time, 5-15 minutes per day, giving your body the attention it craves and deserves. It works hard to support you. Giving it superior support will reward you many times over.- Kimmy Spa Concierge.
