Skin brushing, part one – the basics and the benefits

I can’t urge you enough to give skin brushing (also known as dry skin brushing or dry skin brush massage) a try. I would be most surprised if someone who has tried it, doesn’t keep it up. The rewards occur at many levels, but include an immediate sense of well-being that is hard to beat for such a simple task that only takes a few minutes. It is also a truly spotless method of skin care, cleansing, and boosting your health, being completely free and without using any products at all. The only thing you will need to practice skin brushing daily, or as often as you like, forever, is a long-handled, soft and natural bristled brush.

Very basically, skin brushing involves [1]literally brushing the entire surface of your skin, using long, quite firm strokes, starting from your hands and feet and moving mostly in the direction of your heart. (You can even use this technique on your face, but for this delicate area you would need a special, softer brush.) I’ll provide more detailed instructions on how to do it later [2], but first, let me tell you about some of the truly powerful benefits of skin brushing. Skin brushing stimulates, heals, tones and detoxifies the skin and body in a range of useful ways. (I’ll expand on some of these in later posts.) The list of benefits from skin brushing is so extensive it hardly seems credible.

All of this may sound too good to be true. Please don’t just take my word for it. Give this ancient technique a try and see for yourself. Before I expand on the many wonderful benefits, next time I’ll give some details of how to do it [2].
