Dry Body Brushing – a natural way to detox

Regularly dry brushing the skin using a natural bristle brush is proven to do more to ease dimples and tone the body than any potion or cream. It doesn’t just stop at cellulite — dry brushing is great for overall health and well-being, promotes lymphatic drainage, helps the body metabolise and flush toxins more efficiently, discourages fluid retention and soften and tones the skin. Its benefits are immediate and long lasting.

DRY BODY BRUSHING FOR EXFOLIATION

Dry body brushing is fantastic at exfoliating those dead skin cells. Other exfoliants such as walnut shells or apricot kernels are often too abrasive for the skin and actually create micro-perforations. The coarse bristles of a Dry Brush are just strong enough to reveal new radiant skin, without damaging the outmost layer of skin.

DRY BODY BRUSHING FOR SMOOTH SKIN

Dry body brushing invigorates and encourages cell turnover so skin both looks and feels supple. Its also great for keeping ingrown hairs and clogged pores at bay.

DRY BODY BRUSHING FOR CELLULITE

Whilst dry body brushing isn’t a complete cure for cellulite, it does help to mobilise and contribute to the even distribution of fat deposits under the skin, giving your skin a smoother and firmer look and feel. It also helps to bring nutrient rich freshly oxygenated blood to the skin’s surface, which gives it better tone and elasticity.

DRY BODY BRUSHING FOR YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM

Bacteria, toxins and waste from our blood filter through the lymph nodes where these substances are destroyed. Dry body brushing thoroughly stimulates the lymphatic system, and by doing this you are directly assisting in removing pathogens. This strengthens the immune system and lessens its susceptibility to illness.

Many of our clients like to add Dry Brushing to their massage treatments, for a divine massage that also works to give your body a little detox.

DRY BODY BRUSHING FOR ENERGY

As blood flow and circulation is stimulated by the gentle brushing action, it lends the body, skin and mind a much needed boost.
