Dry Brushing - Who Knew?

Another great post from our fave celeb facialist, Cecilia Wong! 

Dry brushing has numerous health and beauty benefits and if you haven't tried it, you should! 

Here are some interesting facts:

1. Exfoliates dead skin cells
This process sheds the dead skin off the body which can help improve skin texture and cell renewal. It leaves your skin baby smooth and a healthy glow.

2. Stimulates lymphatic system
The lymph vessels collect the waste materials from the skin. When you dry brush your skin it helps move lymph fluid and allows it to eliminate toxins-purifying the entire system. This enables the lymph to perform its house-cleaning duties by keeping the blood and other vital tissues detoxified.

3. Increases circulation and skin functions
Dry brushing  helps your skin to absorb nutrients by eliminating clogged pores. It improves circulation and blood flow in your body- allowing more oxygen to travel from head to toe. An excellent way to rejuvenate and revive your skin.

4. Reduces cellulite
Improving cellulite is one of the main reasons people look into dry brushing. Cellulite are a toxic materials that are accumulated in your body's fat cells as they are unable to be eliminated. Dry brushing is a non-invasive way to improve the appearance of your skin.

5. Stimulates hormones and oil glands
The skin is your body's largest organ. When improperly maintained, toxins are accumulated and trapped  in the liver and kidneys. This will help to balance hormones and oil production - reducing blemishes, whiteheads and acne.

Dry brush before you shower and while your skin is dry. To avoid damaging the skin, use a soft, natural fiber brush. You want to start with your hands or feet and brush on your bare skin in small circular motions. Continue brushing all along your body towards the heart. Focus on the your neck (under the chine) and under arm area.
