Dry Skin Brushing is a form of Lymphatic drainage using a dry natural bristle brush to gently brush your skin all over your body.
It helps your skin to glow by removing all of the dull and dead layers of skin. It also aids in encouraging new cells to regenerate. The massaging motion of the bristles from the brush also has a beneficial effect on cellulite and can eliminate toxins from the Lymphatic system by stimulating it.
How to do a dry skin brushing massage?
First your skin must be dry as well as the brush. This may be done first thing in the morning or right before your evening bath.
You start at the neck with downward strokes towards the clavicle. This is to activate the large lymph nodes in the neck at the terminus.
Then you move to the chest wall area. DO NOT BRUSH INTO THE BREAST TISSUE! Brush the chest wall outward toward the armpit or axilla.
ARMS: Divide your arm in two. Start brushing from the elbow upward toward the armpit. Then brush the lower arm to the elbow. Finally, brush from the fingertips all the way up to the armpit. Do the next arm.
Below the chest wall or breast you want to brush down into the lower abdominal area as we have many lymph nodes in this region leading to your colon. Brush the abdominal area in a clockwise position
LEGS: The same way you divided the arms you will do with the legs. Start with your thigh to your groin. Then your ankle to your knee and finally the entire leg.
How much strokes?
Usually about 3 to 5. However, do it as long as you want just make sure that you are doing it correctly.
Your skin will glow, the appearance of cellulite will decrease, your Lymphatic System will start removing toxic build up and you will feel rejuvenated!
