Quick Tip Monday!!!
In a previous blog I wrote about the benefits of dry brushing and I thought I would share again the reason why dry brushing could be beneficial for your overall health.
I recently injured my back, and I started experiencing some numbness in my legs. At first I thought that maybe my potassium levels were low, but then it came to me that my blood wasn’t circulating as well as should be. I instantly went in search of my dry brush. I picked it up and begin to massage my legs in an upward motion towards my heart and instantly the numbness went away and I was able to get some rest.
You may be asking…..
What is Dry Brushing?
It’s when you use a dry, specially designed brush (not to be confused with a basic shower brush) to massage your skin while it’s dry. To complete, brush the skin in vertical long strokes towards the heart. Start at your feet and work your way up.
FYI: Brushing towards the heart and not away from it helps to stimulate the lymphatic system; this is very important to note when starting this process.

How often do I need to Dry Brush?
Daily or even twice a day (especially when trying to eliminate cellulite).
How long does it take?
Normal time 5 to 10 minutes.
What type of brush should I purchase?
The bristles should be somewhat stiff, natural, and preferably vegetable-derived. Do not purchase a synthetic brush.

Online or in a natural health store.

I believe this brush will be a great addition to your self-care regimen! And oh so economical. Instead of going to the Spa and paying someone to treat your skin, you can just relax at home and begin to love the skin you’re in.
Here’s To Your Health!!!
