WELLNESS RITUALS THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR DAY; Part 2 / by Ryann Hanes

Dry Brushing

Dry Brushing

Dry Brushing is an Ayurvedic technique that I cannot live without. Your skin is the largest organ in your body and is also responsible for excreting 1/3 of all toxins. Dry brushing provides major lymphatic support by stimulating the circulation of lymph throughout your body. This stimulation helps the body to naturally detoxify, aids in digestion + circulation and helps to relieve water retention. Dry brushing makes skin smooth, helps to clear pores and helps to exfoliate dead skin, leaving a natural glow.

Before taking a bath, take a firm, natural bristled brush and brush your skin in a circular pattern or long strokes towards your heart, beginning at your feet.
