Dry skin brushing is a therapy that has been around for thousands of years and was used by most ancient cultures such as the Greeks, Chinese, Japanese, American Indians and many others. Dry skin brushing provides much more benefits than just beautiful skin. It’s is also a great detoxifying tool to keep the entire body healthy, especially the lymphatic system.

The skin is the largest organ of the body and like the colon and urinary tract it’s a very important waste disposal channel!
Here are some of its main functions:
- Helps remove toxins through perspiration
• Shields the body’s internal organs
• Assist the immune system by creating a barrier to outside pollution and toxins
• Acts as a thermostat by helping regulate body temperature
Dry Skin Brushing is a technique that quickly removes the top layer of dead skin and allows your whole body to “breathe” and rid toxins. It brings more nutrients and oxygen to the surface leaving the skin softer, smoother and more youthful looking. It can even give you more energy by stimulating your immune system.
Dry Skin Brushing Quickly Makes Your Skin Look Younger And Feel Softer. Here Are Some Additional Benefits:
- Removes dead skin
• Helps clear up acne by unclogging pores and allowing toxins to dissipate.
• Increases circulation to the skin
• Detoxifies and stimulates proper function of lymph nodes
• Helps boost the immune system.
• Plus much more!
Dry Skin Brushing Helps Rid Cellulite
Dry Skin Brushing can even help break up and eliminate cellulite! Focus brushing on any area where you have cellulite. Many report amazing results since dry skin brushing breaks up trapped toxins that are stored below the skin given them a way out of the body.
How to Dry Skin Brush
Begin with the soles of your feet and move up your legs to the buttocks, back and stomach. Always brush toward your heart. Do the same with the hands moving up the arms and then to the chest. Continue brushing toward your heart or against the direction of the hair on your body. After brushing, your skin will feel softer, look more youthful and will glow like never before!
Note: It is recommended that women avoid the breast area.
At first it may fell a bit uncomfortable to dry skin brush over sensitive areas of the body such as under the arms, or on the midsection of the body. In time you will adapt and may actually begin to like the tingling sensation. A new dry skin brush may seem a bit more coarse and scratchy. Don’t worry; this scratchy feeling is not damaging to your skin! You will find that your brush will soften with each use and after about 10 sessions it won’t seem as course. I recommend replacing your dry skin brush every 4-5 months.
When To Dry Skin Brush?
You can dry skin brush any time of the day. Personally I like to do it first thing in the morning. Many like to do it before taking a shower or before working out since it opens the pores and allows the body to excrete more toxins during the shower or through perspiration during working out. It’s especially good right before a hot sauna. I recommend dry brushing at minimum once per day and preferably twice per day, morning and night and 3 times per day during times that you are doing a fast or body cleanse.
Where To Find A Dry Skin Brush?
We are working on designing our own dry skin brush to include better quality bristles and a longer handle but for now you can find decent a brush at most bath and body shops as well as many health food stores. The best dry skin brushes are made of a special type of palm and looks like a rounded toilet bowel brush. You can see an example of the brush on Amazon.com by typing in… Purest Palm Body Brush.
