The technique is a simple one. You will need a brush with a long handle. Skin brushing is done on dry skin. Start at bottom of your feet and work upwards, brushing the legs, then buttocks, then on to the chest and stomach. Brush more gently where the skin is thinnest and always brush towards the heart. For the arms, start at the fingers with raised arms. Brush down your arm, into your arm pits. Brushing your whole body in this way will take you between three and five minutes, depending on how many strokes you give to each area. Try to keep a rhythm going and brush for up to five minutes every day and preferably immediately before you have a bath or shower so that the dead cells are washed away. The acceleration of blood flow has quite an invigorating effect. You should be able to see the difference in your skin after just a few sessions - it will become very soft and develop an attractive rosy glow.
Good reasons for skin brushing:
Stimulates blood and lymph flow
Helps eliminate toxins from the body
Removes dead skin cells
Encourages cells to regenerate
Stimulates production of sebum
Helps combat cellulite
Results in smooth glowing skin
The body's largest organ is the skin. We now know that if the skin is not carrying out normal elimination, your lungs, kidneys and bowels will function poorly. Conversely, anything you can do to improve skin function will improve the function of the other elimination organs.
