Dry skin brushing: caring for all of your skin

Related Categories: Victory Residents

Many people carefully tend to the skin on their face by regularly exfoliating, cleansing and moisturizing. But when was the last time you tended to the skin on the rest of your body?

Your skin is your largest organ, after all, and there is one simple step you can add to your morning routine that can greatly improve its health as well as aid in the detoxification of the body: dry skin brushing.

Dry skin brushing does not just help your skin’s aesthetic appearance, although many would agree this is important too. Its benefits go beyond skin deep, offering whole-body benefits to your health.

As part of a regular regimen, dry skin brushing will:

  • Stimulate your lymphatic system
  • Exfoliate your entire body
  • Increase circulation
  • Tighten skin
  • Relieve stress
  • Improve digestion and kidney function
  • Invigorate the body and mind
