The skin is a noble shield, working nonstop to keep your vital organs protected from pollutants and to allow toxins to be excreted through the pores. If it does not regenerate properly, dead skin follicles— along with toxins, oils, and dirt—can build up, causing inflammation. Dry brushing comes from an ancient Ayurvedic ritual that helps the skin efficiently shed all of this. The practice helps to boost circulation, exfoliate dead skin cells, and improve the appearance and feel of your skin. It also helps to stimulate the lymphatic system and increase oxygen flow, simultaneously boosting the natural detoxification process.
Think of the lymphatic system as a fluid guard. A set of organs, tissues, and vessels that transport lymph (a fluid full of white blood cells), the lymphatic system protects against infection and disease, working non-stop to rid the body of waste, toxins, and any unwanted or foreign elements. This lymph flows through small glands called lymph nodes, where it is filtered. A healthy, flowing lymphatic system is essential for optimal health. The ancient practice of dry brushing helps to exfoliate skin of any built-up toxins and dead skin cells, and stimulate the lymphatic system by helping it to rid toxins, waste, and other internal debris. The simple act of brushing the skin with natural bristles boosts oxygen and blood flow, promoting the healthy flow and drainage of lymph. The gliding action and light pressure assists the flow - and subsequent drainage and filtration - of lymph (since the lymphatic system lives just under the skin). It is a powerful act of daily self-care that has not only esthetic benefits, but great health benefits over time!
