Many toxic substances are eliminated through the skin. Lightly brushing the skin with a dry brush stimulates blood and lymphatic circulation, removes dead cells and promotes elimination.
Use a soft bristle brush. Start brushing at your feet and brush towards the heart, since it is important to follow the flow of lymphatic fluid.
Brush from the fingertips up to the shoulders and toward the heart. Use long strokes and gentle pressure. Avoid the facial area and areas of skin irritation. Skin brushing can easily be incorporated into a daily routine when performed before showering or bathing.
