What are the benefits of dry skin brushing?
As we age, our bodies become less efficient at shedding outer layers of dead skin cells which can make our skin look dry and dull. Exfoliating dead skin stimulates the sweat and oil glands. This provides moisture to the skin surface, leaving it fresh, vibrant and free of breakouts.

Absorption of nutrients and oxygen
Removing debris from your skin surface increases the absorption of oxygen and other nutrients into your body.
Increased circulation boosts white blood cell production and antibodies to strengthen your immune system.
Brushing problem areas can help to minimise and eliminate annoying fatty deposits, so give those areas an extra brush!
Dry brushing stimulates skin cell renewal, helping to prevent premature ageing.
Boosting blood circulation increases the oxygen in your muscles.
By removing dead skin cells and stimulating natural oil production, your skin will look and feel soft and smooth.
Collagen production decreases as we age, but dry brushing can encourage your body to produce more.
Our lymphatic system plays a vital role in removing toxins from our bodies. Dry skin brushing stimulates your lymphatic system by aiding the flow of lymph fluid throughout the body. While there are lymph nodes located throughout our bodies, the inner thighs and armpits have the most, so pay extra attention to these areas when brushing. The lymph system flows towards the heart, so it's important to sweep in the same flow. Always brush towards your heart.
