Dry Skin Brushing to Detox Lymphatic System and Cellulite – Here’s How to Do it Properly

Lymphatic Drainage loading...

Ages ago, when I first stumbled upon the notion of dry skin brushing as a form of preventative healing therapy, I must admit I was heavily burdened with a profound sense of skepticism.

I really began to doubt how the simple act of dry brushing our skin could actually help undo most of the damage caused by our modern lifestyles. More importantly, it almost seemed too good to be true.

I could not be farther from the truth.

However, as I continued developing the key foundations of a healthy holistic lifestyle, it kept popping up in my research.

I began recommending it as a simple (and very affordable) method of detox and immune system booster.

Later, I discovered that it was not only a trendy way to help your body’s functions naturally; it is also a key therapy in the millennial tradition of Ayurveda. It has effectively helped millions of people improve their health and their lives without the dangers of artificial medications or foods.

It looks like all we’re doing is stubbornly brushing a piece of skin hoping for some miraculous result. That point of view is only skin deep.

The reality is that by properly dry brushing, we’re stimulating and healing multiple systems and organs in our bodies.

4 Benefits Dry Skin Brushing

1. It Can Help Boost Your Lymphatic System

Unlike your circulatory and cardiovascular system, your lymphatic system does not have a heart to naturally and constantly provide movement to the system’s fluids and toxic build-ups.

By properly brushing, you can help your lymphatic system efficiently transport white blood cells and remove any toxic residues in your lymph nodes.

A wonderful side effect is that your immune system gets a sweet little boost.

2. It Can Help Your Kidneys and Digestion

Although they almost seem completely unrelated to each, your skin actually has a profound connection with your kidney’s and digestive system’s functions and health.

By massaging the right lymph nodes, you’re actively getting rid of the toxins and excess water that cause feelings of being bloated. More importantly, dry skin brushing can preemptively make your kidney’s work a lot easier.

3. Stress Management

Besides feeling amazing for your skin, the daily ritual of carefully skin brushing can be relaxingly addictive because it’s the perfect way to manage your stress.

Think about it, it’s almost like a full body massage. Maybe slightly less messy. And at the end of it, your muscles are relaxed and your mind is free of worries.

4. It’s Your Skin’s Best Friend

Not only does dry skin brushing naturally remove the dead skin cells littering your skin it can also help prevent and remove cellulitis.

By brushing regularly, you can help remove the fatty toxic buildup that is characteristic of cellulitis. These are then filtered out naturally through your body.

A Quick Guide to Dry Brushing

Look for a completely natural stiff bristled brush. Ideally, you want a detachable handle to help you reach every part of your body.

Try brushing every day, preferably in the morning right before your shower.

When brushing, always try long sweeping motions. Avoid being too rough; you only want to cause stimulation, not irritation.

Start from your feet and work your way to your heart. When you’re on your stomach, I recommend soft circular brush strokes.
