Instant Luminous Skin & Stripping Down the Dry Brushing Technique

On Luminous Skin Health

In today’s fast-paced society, most of us savor our “no poo” (no shampoo) days to not only save time, but to save the health of our hair.

In reality, we also lack the time or resources to eat only organic, make use of a fitness membership, or to research the best natural beauty alternatives.

 

What if I said that adding a new healthy habit (ritual) that could fit into every budget and schedule - all in three minutes per day - and would improve how you look and feel, both internally and externally.


Beauty Blueprint

Let's Strip Down - Dry Brushing.  

 

Next to our fresh, pure and small batch organic skin care and immune-supporting supplements on the shelves of BE, you’ll find a long wooden brush thats invaluable in helping with so many issues, but especially detoxing.  

As your body’s largest organ, your skin health reflects your overall health. It protects you and aids in detoxification, and by adding dry brushing to your other healthy habits, you can help improve your skin’s health.

Indeed, the practice of brushing the skin  with a soft but firm brush is essential during a detox, but the benefits of simply making it a permanent habit are even more important.

Stripping Down the Benefits of Brushing

  • sweep away dead cells for awakened, healthy skin tone
  • increase skin barrier health + hydration
  • stimulate the lymph nodes to flush toxins
  • improve digestion health to decrease bloating
  • improve the appearance of cellulite
  • increase healthy blood flow

Let's go DEEP.  The Cellular Level.    

 

 Improves Circulation

Dry brushing your skin promotes blood flow, which helps speed up your skin cell turnover and renewal rate. By improving blood circulation, you improve your skin tone and texture, since poor circulation is linked to dark spots and slower healing.

Improved circulation also helps one of the biggest skin struggles - cellulite. You might feel frustrated when your dedication to exercise and healthy eating doesn’t do anything to improve stubborn spots of dimply skin. Dry brushing, however, can help reduce the appearance when other methods aren’t working. It’s not a permanent solution, so brushing regularly is vital to maintaining smooth skin.

Internally, your improved circulation promotes the flow of oxygen-rich blood through your whole body. Remember to dry brush towards your heart rather than away to further enhance circulation.

 

It’s a great form of self-care

You might get into dry brushing to improve your skin, but you’ll likely keep doing it because of how good it feels, and how good it makes you feel.

Dry brushing first thing in the morning is a great way to get your blood flowing, and it helps you wake up feeling refreshed. Plus, the skin improvements you’ll see will make you feel invigorated.

Taking the time to dry brush can be therapeutic, and it’s a healthy way to soothe muscle tension and relieve stress. Set aside a specific time every day to enjoy the benefits of dry brushing in a quiet and peaceful environment to enjoy the meditative benefits.

Dry Brushing Exfoliates

Dry brushing is an excellent form of exfoliation, and it helps get rid of dead skin cells, priming your skin for moisturizer. By removing dead, dull skin cells, your skin will look radiant, even, and smooth.

Exfoliating helps your skin’s renewal process, and prevents breakouts by keeping pores clear. Regular exfoliation can even help prevent wrinkles and fine lines from forming, leaving you with youthful skin.

It Aids in Detoxification

Your body detoxifies multiple ways, including through your skin, and with a couple of different systems. By unclogging pores, your skin can more efficiently eliminate toxins. Healthy skin also protects you, and by keeping bad bacteria out, your skin helps your digestive system work better.

Your lymphatic system is also plays a big part in detoxing your body. It collects waste from your tissues and organs and delivers the waste to your blood to be drained. If your lymphatic system isn’t working properly, toxins can build up, leading to multiple health and beauty issues.

Dry brushing stimulates your lymphatic system and promotes lymphatic drainage, which gets rid of toxins, improves the immune system, and reduces inflammation.

Kidneys also play a big role in detoxification. Keeping your pores unclogged helps waste excrete with your sweat. When your skin can effectively get rid of toxins, it places less burden on your kidneys, so they don’t have to work as hard and can do their job better.

Improves muscle tone

An active nervous system stimulates muscle fibers, which helps improve muscle tone. Dry brushing activates the nervous system, and your improved circulation also helps your muscles get the oxygen-rich blood they need to recover and tone.

By toning muscles, you’ll notice tighter skin, which can help with cellulite and sagging.

Choosing Your Brush

You can get an excellent brush for under $20 that benefits your entire body. I prefer one with natural bristles and a long handle, so it’s easy to get to your hard-to-reach spots. Stop by Beauty Ecology to grab your brush!

 

Ready?

Here’s how to get the most benefits out of dry brushing your skin.

1. Choose an easy-to-clean surface to stand on and get undressed.

2. Brush towards your heart in sweeping motions, starting at your feet and working your way up. Go over each area a number of times.

3. Be gentle in the more sensitive areas, and dry brush for 5 to 10 minutes.

4. Take a shower after your session, and alternate between hot and cold water to get your blood flowing even more.

5. Moisturize immediately after your shower.

6. Keep your brush clean by washing it once a week with gentle soap and water, and allow it to air dry.

Enjoying Healthier, Luminous Skin

When you first get started, you might find that your skin is too sensitive to dry brush more than five minutes a couple of times a week. However, as you continue, your skin will become less sensitive, and you can increase to longer sessions and up to twice per day.

By taking a few minutes to yourself each day for a dry brush session, you’ll see and feel the results.


 

GET THE DRY BODY BRUSH
 

This genius, long-handled natural-bristle brush allows you to thoroughly dry-brush every part of your body—especially your back, which feels particularly amazing (and is uniquely hard-to-reach). It’s also the perfect balance of soft and firm, designed to gently exfoliate, improve circulation, condition skin, and boost the lymphatic system. Brilliant for detoxing, and equally brilliant for everyday skin-smoothing and energy-generating immune support.

Directions: Brush very gently on dry skin in clockwise circular movements. Move from the feet all the way up the body towards the heart.
