What is Dry Skin Brushing & Its Role in Acne?

 

Many natural-health experts are true believers in dry skin brushing.  Results have been shown to improve circulation in the body, and even improve the appearance of cellulite.

 

But just how does dry skin brushing help improve acne?

The idea is that increased circulation means increased blood and oxygen to your cells.  This, in turn, helps the body detoxify itself more effectively.  If you rid the body of excess toxins, you may notice healthier skin.

Due to a modern diet which is often lacking in fiber and nutrients, many are constipated on a regular basis.  If the body does not rid itself of waste through its regular channels, you get a buildup of toxins in the colon.

These toxins then enter the bloodstream, and go to the liver for detoxification.  If your liver is overworked, then your skin and overall health will be affected.

 

This is where dry skin brushing comes into play!

Dry skin brushing can help, because it removes the top layer of the skin.  It also improves the circulation in the body.  As a result, toxins are removed from the body and organs, including the skin.  

 

Here is how to dry brush the skin effectively:

  1. Remove all clothing.Using a natural, bristle brush, gently start brushing from the feet upwards.
  2. First do both legs, moving in gentle long strokes.
  3. Then move on to the arms.
  4. Then do the back.
  5. Finally, brush the abdomen and chest area.

Tips:

  • Use circular strokes and always brush upwards towards the chest area.
  • It’s important to be gentle to avoid breaking the natural skin collagen.
  • For best results, aim to dry skin brush at least once a day.
  • Another option for increasing circulation to the face is to wet a muslin cloth in warm water, and then gently rub it over the face in a circular motion. This will help regenerate the skin cells, and help circulate the blood flow.

 

To summarise, dry skin brushing is recommended by many natural healthcare providers as a way of improving health.  It has been shown to provide many benefits for both the body and skin.  Many users report increased energy, healthier skin, and even weight loss.  It is certainly worth a try to see what results you get, and if it improves your acne.
