This treatment helps with stimulating your lymphatic system, increasing circulation, reducing cellulite, improving digestion, stress relief, and exfoliating.
1. Stimulate your lymphatic system - In your body, your lymphatic system is the system responsible for eliminating cellular waste products. Hundreds of miles of lymphatic tubules allow waste to be collected from your tissues and transported to your blood for elimination. A process referred to as lymphatic drainage. When your lymphatic system is not working properly, waste and toxins can build up and make you sick. Lymphatic congestion is a major factor leading to inflammation and disease. By stimulating your lymphatic system and helping it release toxins, dry skin brushing is a powerful detoxification aid.
2. Exfoliation - Dry skin brushing removes dead dry skin, improving appearances, clearing your clogged pores, and allowing your skin to "breathe".
3. Increase circulation - When you dry brush your skin, it increases circulation to your skin, which encourages the elimination of metabolic waste.
4. Reduce cellulite - Dry skin brushing may help to soften hard fat deposits below the skin while distributing fat deposits more evenly. This may help to diminish the appearance of cellulite. Dry brushing is also said to help reduce cellulite by removing toxins that may break down connective tissue, although some believe the effect is temporary (and mostly a result of skin becoming plumper and swollen after brushing) The Huffington post reported: "When we'd heard dry skin brushing was an effective method for reducing cellulite, we knew we had to include it in our anti-cellulite road test. Sure enough, it was indeed one of the more successful ways to smooth away less-than-perfect spots on your legs."
5. Stress relief - The act of dry brushing has been described as meditative (especially if you do it in a quiet space) and may reduce muscle tension, calm your mind, and relieve stress. Many compare it to a light whole-body massage.
6. Improve digestion and kidney function - Dry skin brushing may go even deeper, helping to support your digestion and organ function. According to one skincare and spa expert.
"Many naturopathic doctors use dry brushing to help with bloating because massaging the lymph nodes helps the body shed excess water and toxins. One of the immediate effects of dry brushing is smoother skin, but it can also help improve digestion, kidney function, and more."
7. It's invigorating - Many people become "addicted" to dry skin brushing (in a good way) because it simply feels so good. Along with glowing and tighter skin, regular dry skin brushes report feeling invigorated after a quick session. Dry skin brushing also boosts your circulation, exfoliates your skin, may reduce cellulite, and offers both stress relief and invigoration.
