What is Dry Brushing

What is Dry Brushing

The lymphatic system is one of the most important parts of your immune system that you’ve probably never heard of. This system is a network of tissues and organs that filter toxins. The primary function of the lymphatic system is to transport a fluid called lymph that contains infection fighting white blood cells through the body. 

Dry brushing is one way you can help keep your lymphatic system running effectively. Dry brushing is exactly what it sounds like; it is where you take a dry brush with natural bristles and rub it across your skin to stimulate blood flow, break up lymphatic build up and also exfoliate the skin.   

It is recommended that you dry brush daily before you shower.  Doing this every day will help you prevent lymphatic build up and can even promote elasticity and a youthful look for your skin!  

For added skincare benefits, applying a body butter such as shea or cocoa butter after you dry brush can help you promote better health!
