Natural Coconut Fibre Bristles

The skin is the largest elimination organ, it is known to be responsible for 10 to 15% of total body elimination, and is sometimes referred to as the third kidney. Dry skin brushing is a swift and powerful way to enhance the detoxification process. Not only does it improve the appearance of your skin by eliminating dead cells and helping new skin to regenerate, it also stimulates blood circulation, the lymphatic system, and greatly enhances toxin elimination. Stimulating the lymphatic system through skin brushing will encourage blood circulation and cell regeneration. Both actions promote detoxification, weight loss and cellulite reduction, as well as improve body tone and skin radiance.
All you need is a NATURAL bristle brush with a long handle or a loofah and 5 minutes of your day - lucky for you we sell a basket load of different loofah mitts, bath brushes and dry brushes to suit even the most sensitive souls!
I start with brushing my feet, including the soles, moving upwards to the hips and thighs, torso, arms, neck and shoulders/armpits in small circular motions. If in doubt, brush gently in small circular motions in the direction of the heart.
As a general guide, it is more beneficial to brush from the extremities towards the core of the body. Always brush gently, and especially over the sensitive areas. In time, and with practice, your skin will become more resilient and endure more vigorous brushing. It is important to avoid brushing over bruises, cuts or irritated areas.
Dry Skin Brushing benefits are numerous and include:
- Accelerating toxin elimination (great if you are giving up smoking or caffeine)
- Stimulating blood flow and circulation
- Improving the appearance of cellulite
- Enhancing lymphatic flow
- Exfoliation and removal of dead skin cells
- Anti-ageing through cell regeneration
- Stimulating both the sweat and sebaceous glands, thus contributing to the restoration of moist, supple skin.
Brushing your whole body will take around 3 to 5 minutes. Always brush the skin when it is dry, and follow with a hot shower to wash off the dead cells. It's a great wake up routine, try it for a calendar month and see if you see any improvement in your skin, energy levels and overall well-being!
