Dry brushing – it’s the new must do for smooth skin. A regular dry scrub is said to reduce the visibility of cellulite and tone those soft squidgy bits. But we’re not only interested in these benefits as we’re big fans of wobbly bits and far more interested in what dry brushing can do for your overall health and well-being.
The secret to vibrant skin is your commitment to caring for it and dry brushing is the perfect place to start.
So why should you dry brush?
Improves energy. An increase in blood flow increases the amount of oxygen pumped around the body which gives the body and mind a big energy boost. It’s probably best to include brushing into your morning routine rather than when you’re on your way to bed.
Improves circulation. When you use a dry body brush, you are increasing blood flow, which speeds up the transportation of oxygen and nutrients to cells and tissues. This improves circulation and also increases collagen production for smooth appearance which results in less visibility of cellulite.
Boosts immune system. Dry brushing stimulates the lymphatic system which is responsible for removing bacteria, toxins and waste from our blood. By stimulating the lymphatic system we are strengthening the immune system, resulting in a stronger, healthier body.
A great exfoliant.. Regularly exfoliating removes dead skin cells meaning that your skin will absorb ingredients from skincare products such as serums and creams more effectively.
