Our lymphatic system is our body�s Immune System. The lymphatic fluid can become sluggish over time and dry skin brushing can be a lymphatic stimulant. Skin brushing helps exfoliate and invigorate our skin too. It increases our blood supply to the area bringing with it nourishment and oxygen.
Our circulatory system has its own pump (our heart) to move our blood through our bodies but our lymphatic system does not. It relies primarily on our movement to assist it. Typically, the more active we are the better condition our lymphatics are in. Skin brushing helps move our lymph fluid and gives us a jump-start on our health.
- Natural bristle brush (do not use synthetic)
Always use a dry brush. Using a light touch make long strokes towards the heart, except on your abdomen where your strokes should be towards your groin. Start with your arms and work your entire body ending with your toes. Shower and enjoy the day!
If you use a loofah pad instead of the natural bristle brush, place it in the washer and dryer prior to use the first time. This will loosen the fibers and make it more effective.
Do not brush to the point of making your skin raw or sore. If irritation occurs you may be using too much pressure.
