Have you ever tried dry body brushing before?

My new inspiration comes from the famous Aussie SuperModel, Miranda Kerr.

During the downtime that I’ve had, my Soul was craving for everything healthy — organic food, juice cleanse, herbal teas, essential oils, yoga, and dry body brushing.

Dry body brushing? What exactly is that?!

 According to Jodie Smith,

Dry body brushing is a traditional natural health practice, which involves brushing over the skin dry, followed by a shower or bath.

A lot of benefits of dry body brushing are not necessarily something you can only see… but also what you feel. My clients tell me they feel energised after brushing and the reason for that is body brushing stimulates our circulatory system. Dry body brushing stimulates the connective tissue attached to the capillaries sitting under the skin, to improve circulation travelling to the heart. It also assists the lymphatic flow around the body. The lymph relies on muscle movement to pass through the body so if you are not an active person, dry body brushing is a wonderful tool to stimulate the lymph flow so that you are ridding the body of waste and toxins daily.

Although many websites recommend dry brushing twice daily, I dry brush only once daily in the morning before I shower.  The reason why I dry brush only once was because I didn't want to contaminate the brush in the evening when I get back from classes.  I just simply love the feel of a clean brush on my skin the next day (OCD alert lol!) and I only have the time to clean the brush every once in two months.  So you can probably imagine how that goes if I were to use it twice daily on my skin (Eeek!).  

It has been a couple of months since I began dry brushing and I can honestly say that my skin does glow.  I do literally feel like my aura has brightened up too.  It's almost like you've had an energetic cleanse, but it goes deeper than that for me -- it's both sacred and empowering.  What’s best was the gradually fading stretch marks on my thighs and knees!  I’m literally in awe with that!

So if you feel inspired to do dry brushing after some research on Pinterest, I'd say 'Go for it, y'all!'.  I feel that it's the best investment and decision ever for your skin.  After all, your skin is the biggest organ!

But before you start dry brushing, please do take note that NOT ALL brushes are suitable for dry brushing.  The brush that is highly recommended by many experts is the one which is made up of plant bristles.  Personally, I’ve gotten myself a Tampico Skin Brush from Yerba Prima.  You can try that too if you like! 

Till this day, I’m still reaping those benefits - my skin is happy! 😉

Let me know if you’ve tried dry brushing before and how it went! I’d love to hear from you! 

Cheerios to dry brushing guys! :')
