DRY SKIN BRUSHING: WHAT IT IS AND HOW IT WORKS TO BOOST YOUR LYMPHATIC SYSTEM



Some valuable tips from the video:

Start from the extremities and work toward the heart.
Start low and work the brush in an upward motion.
Brush at a pressure that feels comfortable. (Do not brush to the point that the skin is raw.)
Go at a pace that feels comfortable.
Pay particular attention to the armpits. They are key to removing toxins.


Many people do not know about the lymphatic system and the important role it plays in total body health. A good way to take care of your lymphatic system is to perform dry skin brushing.

The skin is the body’s largest organ, and it is essential to removing toxins from the body. It sheds dead cells continuously, and the sweat glands flush out any excess toxins or minerals that have built up over time (Health). Thus, keeping the skin as healthy as possible is important to overall health.
