The Detoxification Benefits of Dry Brushing

You brush your hair, but do you brush your body? Probably not, and unless you have been to a progressive spa, you most likely have not heard of this amazing routine that can literally brush the crap right out of your body, benefiting your much-cherished lymphatic system.

Let’s chat about your lymphatic system for a minute…the main function of the lymphatic system is to transport lymph; a clear, colorless fluid containing white blood cells that helps rid the body of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials. This is a super simplistic explanation, but the basic gist is that you can clean yourself out by exciting your lymphatic system with dry brushing…

Dry brushing is a daily detoxifying habit that, if performed correctly for 10 minutes before taking your morning shower, you will see the following benefits:

  • Exfoliates the skin
  • Increases circulation, which helps with elimination
  • Reduces cellulite
  • Improves digestion
  • Provides stress relief
