Dry Skin Brushing

You have heard me mention many times how the skin is the largest organ of the human body. But did you also know that approximately 1/3 of our daily impurities are excreted through it?

Getting your lymphatic system moving in a morning is essential for your body to flush out excess toxins which have built up whilst we sleep. A great way to accelerate this toxin elimination process is by dry skin brushing.


Dry skin brushing gets your lymphatic system moving, gets your blood circulating and has also been suggested as a method for reducing the appearance of cellulite. Dry skin brushing assists with removing dead skin cells, regenerate new skin cells and allows the skin to breathe.


Always use the brush to stroke up towards your heart, creating a movement within the lymphatic system and blood. Start at your feet and work you way up towards your neck.


Once you have body brushed, take a shower to assist with the blood circulation and to wake your body up even more; a cold shower is my personal preference!
