Perhaps you got yourself one of these brushes and now you want to know how to best use it and what can it do for your health?
The benefits of skin brushing are wonderful. Of course to feel and see results a steady and consistent protocol is vital.
How the Skin Brush Helps Rid the Body Of Waste
The skin is the largest organ of the body. It is said that 1 lb of waste per day is eliminated by the skin.
So if we are consistent in skin brushing to assist the lymph to get rid unwanted materials in the body we will then see great health benefits.
The skin really gives us warning signs of what is going on in the body. If there is a rash, bump, boil, pimple etc…we can be sure that there is some internal issue like an infection or overgrowth of bad bacteria.
Dead skin cells and outdoor pollution as well as waste from inside the body can sometimes have a challenge getting out through clogged pores.
The brush will help to move things along & allow the skin to breathe.
It is a great way to open up your pores and exfoliate.
How to Use the Brush
I suggest starting at your heart area and brush outwards gently down the body and along your back side. Then you can brush outwards down your arms.
For the stomach area you can go in a circular motion clock wise. With a gentler brush you can do this motion along the breasts.
Then brush down your chest upwards towards your chin.
Right after you have done some thorough skin-brushing take a hot/cold shower to really get the lymph moving.
It is so invigorating and beneficial to your body. The reason for this is it helps to move the waste out more efficiently. With hot/cold showers you strengthen the nervous system & maintain optimum adrenal function.
Get Rid of Cellulite
If you are looking to get rid of cellulite or fat you can be sure that adding 5-15 minutes of vigorous skin brushing per day over 30 days time you will see results.
Think of it as a massage for your connective tissue. What is happening is stored matter is then released. This also causes stored emotions to come to the surface for release.
If you do decide to start skin brushing today pick one that is made from all natural fibers & another great addition to skin brushing is to take a drop of therapeutic essential oil and rub onto the brush.
This is my favorite body skin brush currently.
How to brush the face?
The face is much more sensitive and you should have a specific brush for the face. It needs to be much softer like this one. This will help your face look much healthier.
It will get the dead skin cells off and really get blood flow to your face. It can also help drain lymph and toxins when done correctly.
Brush gently from your chin to your hair line in an upwards motion. It feels so lovely like a massage for your face.
Happy Skin Brushing Everyone!!
