Simple and quick technique, dry brushing is the beauty routine to adopt every morning. Across the Atlantic, it is all the rage! Simple and effective, it provides many virtues for little effort. Discover the technique, its benefits and our selection of natural brushes.
As its name suggests, dry brushing consists of brushing the body dry with a brush made of natural bristles. This technique stimulates blood circulation and above all, the lymphatic system to drain and evacuate toxins. As a reminder, the lymph is an organic liquid which surrounds the cells and which is transported by a network of vessels called the lymphatic system. Its role is to clean the body of infectious agents and to trigger the reaction of the immune system if necessary. However, the lymphatic circulation is much slower than that of the blood since it depends on our muscular movements and breathing. The more dynamic the lymphatic circulation, the more effective its cleansing action, and the better our health! Daily brushing therefore stimulates the circulation of the lymph. Also, the skin regenerates every 24 hours and dry brushing the skin in the morning helps to remove the dead skin cells eliminated at night.
If possible, do it in the morning and before the shower, proceed with small energetic circular massages, always going in the direction of the heart. Start with the feet and go up along the legs and calves then from the thighs to the buttocks. Then, massage from the hands to the shoulders, from the lower abdomen to the chest and finally from the neck to the heart. The bravest can massage the face more delicately or with a small softer brush and those who have a brush with a long handle can massage the back.
For little effort, daily brushing offers many benefits. Its exfoliating action provides the same benefits as exfoliation and peeling:
Softens the skin
Eliminates dead skin
Stimulates blood and lymphatic circulation
Fight against cellulite
Reduces orange peel
Boosts the immune system
Small brushes are easier to handle while brushes with long handles make back brushing ore simple.
