Dry Brushing...Accidental Brilliance Superfood + Supplement Series...


A few months back I wrote about the amazing power of dry brushing your skin before you take a a shower. With summer ending and the last leftovers of a tan still hanging around, brushing off that dead skin is a great way to get the Fall started. Although, by now everyone should be brushing on the daily. And assuming you are taking your vitamins and suppplements, eating a balanced diet, doing your best to not use creams and cosmetics with chemicals and unhealthy additives and surrounding yourself with positive inspiring people, what else can you do to take the best care of yourself ? You guessed it Dry Brushing. We all know that our skin is the largest organ of the body but, did you also know that the skin is the most eliminative organ in the body and is responsible for one quarter of the body's detoxification each day. The skin eliminates over one pound of waste acids each day and dry brushing is one of the best ways to aid in this process. What are the benefits you ask...dry brushing removes dead skin layers, strengthens the immune system, removes cellulite, cleanses the lymphatic system, tightens the skin, helps digestion and stimulates circulation to name just a few. And best of all it doesn't take much effort...once you get yourself a brush before your shower each morning simply begin brushing at the feet and continue brushing the entire body using upward strokes, finish your shower with a blast of hot, hot water and then cold, cold water to really get your circulation going, simple as that. For sure one of the best ways to begin your day on an invigorated foot.
