Dry winter days are a ideal time to add dry skin brushing to your healthy routine, and it's a great immune boosting or skin brightening practice any time of year.
It takes only a few extra minutes, and gets your skin glowing and your energy bright and buzzing in the morning. I use a soft brush, and follow up in the shower with a hand made soap with no chemicals in it, and coconut oil - not lotion! - afterwards. 7 strokes of the brush over every part of your skin from the feet up and the head down - always moving toward the heart. Lift your hand up overhead to stroke down each arm for a really delicious tingle all the way to your heart.
Your skin is your largest elimination organ - about 10 - 15% of our "stuff" gets processed there, and it's under assault most of the time with our pollen and pollutant abundant air, and the thick layers of chemicals in most skin lotions. Ditch the lotions forever and save money while you boost your wellbeing and disease fighting power. Coconut oil, almond oil, grapeseed oil - all found at the grocery store for a fraction of the price of expensive lotions - are so much better for you! If your skin is regularly brushed and maintained, your immune system can get busy working on more serious bugs and challenges. You feel better and look better. Try it for 21 days and see for yourself. It's worth it.
