Your body detoxifies constantly by way of organs, glands and transportation systems, including your lymphatic system! But unlike your circulatory system, your lymphatic system does not have a pump, increasing the need for Dry Skin Brushing to help stimulate circulation. By doing so, you can better eliminate toxins through your skin, boost immunity and get your glow on!
So we know that dry skin brushing stimulates the lymphatic system, but what does that even mean? Here’s what it means for you!
- Improved circulation: supplies the brain with oxygen, promotes cell growth and organ function
- Clear, glowing skin: gently exfoliates skin while allowing toxins to be excreted through the skin
- Reduced appearance of cellulite: toxins are stored in fat and when we dry skin brush, it helps to eliminate toxins that might otherwise lead to cellulite
- Boosted immunity: if the lymph system is not flowing properly, the immune system can’t effectively kill invading foreign particles and microorganisms; another reason to stimulate the lymphatic system!
- Increased energy: increased blood flow gives us a joyous boost of energy!
HOW TO DRY SKIN BRUSH
Starting at your feet and with a circular motion, move your way up toward your heart. Spend more time where you have lymph nodes like the insides of your knees, elbows, tummy and armpits. When you get to your chest, do not dry brush your nipples, nor any sensitive areas. For more dry skin brushing tips.
HOW THEY’RE MADE

Sisal fibers are extracted from the Agava sisalana plant which are strong and durable, do not absorb moisture easily and are resistant to damage by salt water.
