Brrr... Winter's Here!
The Prana Brush really is the best dry brush out there. It's made with extra fine, ion-charged copper bristles and is made out of extremely high quality and sustainably harvested beechwood. Seriously, each brush looks like a work of art!
Prior to receiving a Prana body brush, I'd heard a little bit about some of its benefits such as brighter skin and reduced cellulite. Since using the brush and reading articles like this one, however, I've learned about other benefits such as improving our lymphatic systems and increasing circulation.
I know a lot of my clients head out on winter getaways around this time of year, so I wanted to share a little bit more information about the benefits of dry brushing this week. Trust me, dry brushing will make your skin look and feel great!
#1: Reduce Cellulite
Generally speaking, women have thinner skin and connective tissue layers, as well as thicker fat layers. The opposite is true for men. The good news is that dry brushing can help move and distribute fat deposits on the skin, while also increasing blood flow and cell renewal to make the skin look tight and firm.
As we age, however, the necessity of exfoliation increases as our body loses its effectiveness in shedding dead skin cells. Worry not! Dry brushing is a great alternative to exfoliating cleansers. It removes dead skin cells that are no longer needed and primes your pores to take on whatever moisturizer you use. Last night, for example, I gave myself a good dry brush scrub, followed by a lather of BeautyCounter’s Countermatch Adaptive Body Moisturizer, and it left me feeling fabulous!
#3: Our Lymphatic Systems
The lymphatic system circulates white blood cells around the body that help combat infections. While the body has 600-700 lymph nodes situated in various places, some of them are close to the skin’s surface in areas like the armpits and groin. Dry brushing those areas and the rest of your body can help stimulate the lymphatic system and your body’s natural detoxification process.
Dry brushing can help improve our circulation, which in turn gives us a great boost to start the day. This is a great tactic for those of you trying to cut down on caffeine!
Dry Brushing Overall
With all of the benefits that we learned about today, I would highly recommend that you give dry brushing a try! It's an all natural technique that has truly stood the test of time.
