How To Skin Brush For Detoxification

by Safe Cleansing Team on May 15, 2010

Would you believe that up to 1 pound of waste can be eliminated through your skin each day? The skin is our largest detox organ and the primary way it gets rid of toxins is through sweating. Cardiovascular exercise and steam baths are great ways to break a sweat, but sweating is not the only way to support the skin to detox. Dry skin brushing is also very helpful. The body makes a new layer of skin roughly every 24 hours. When you brush the top dead layer of skin away, you allow this new layer to come to the surface. Skin brushing also support healthy blood flow and gives your lymph system a boost.

Skin brushing technique: Before you can brush your skin, you’ll need to stop into a health food store and pick up an all natural bristle skin brush. Do not use a synthetic bristle brush as the plastic is too harsh for the skin. Make sure to get a brush with a long handle so you can reach your back. You should brush your skin right before you shower, when it is still dry. Start with your feet and brush up the legs. Then move to your arms. Finally brush your torso. Try to always brush toward your heart and over your heart make circles with the brush. This is said to stimulate blood flow. One pass should take 2-4 minutes and is plenty in the beginning. Make sure to avoid any areas with open skin or sensitive skin. If you want to brush your face, you should buy a soft brush designed for the purpose.

Once you’ve come out of the shower and dried off, your skin should feel especially clean. When you skin brush regularly you are likely to notice that your skin takes on a healthier glow. Other benefits include the reduction of cellulite and varicose veins. One other way you can help your skin is to nourish it with coconut oil after your shower – this is especially helpful in dry climates. Make sure the coconut oil is 100% pure and raw.

Especially for people who live in humid climates: I live in a tropical area and have found that dry skin brushing feels too harsh. I think that’s because my skin is always a little bit damp from the humidity. Instead of using a skin brush in the tropics, I now use special exfoliating gloves that can be used in the shower. The process is the same as above except that it’s done what the shower water is running.

Skin brushing is a great addition to any cleansing and detox program because it supports the body to eliminate toxins faster.
