Dry Body Brushing
Earlier this year I was faced with some pretty scary health news as far as my Lymphatic Stystem was concerned. I am a-o-k and tracking better than ever, but this scare really had me learn a great deal about this particular part/function of my body and how I can best take care of it.
Dry body brushing has so many health benefits - internal and external. It is a ritual that I now practice daily, without compromise.
Internally - Dry body brushing improves vascular blood circulation and lymphatic drainage by releasing toxins and encourages the body's discharge of metabolic wastes. It rejuvenates the nervous system by stimulating the nerve endings located in the skin.
Externally - Dry body brushing helps reduce the appearance of cellulite by breaking up the toxic material accumulated in fat cells. It also sheds dead skin cells - again, promoting renewal. I also feel like it has given me a far more even skin tone, less redness and blotchiness and it has severely reduced any traces of small (but annoying) chest and back acne.
I couldn't recommend this simple, effective & CHEAP (!!) ritual enough.
