4 Ways Skin Brushing Can Aid Health and Beauty, Manchester, Connecticut

When it comes to caring for our skin, bathing and moisturizing are common forms of health and beauty maintenance. Constance Jones -- Colon Hydrotherapy would like to show you another method that is often overlooked and has benefits that extend beyond our skin to our entire body. It’s called “dry skin brushing”.

Dry skin brushing is a simple process. Purchase a long handled brush with natural bristles, so you can easily reach every part of your body. Starting with your feet, brush your skin upward, toward your heart. Use long, overlapping strokes applying medium pressure. For sensitive skin areas use a gentler pressure. After you've finished, jump in the shower to rinse off the exfoliated skin cells. Apply a moisturizer or coconut oil when you finish. Dry skin brushing can be done daily before your usual shower. Some health practitioners recommend twice daily dry skin brushing for optimal results.

Add it to your health and beauty regimen and you’ll help your body in these four other amazing ways:

  • Improve Circulation: Brushing your skin increases the amount of blood circulating to your skin. This also promotes the elimination of metabolic waste.
  • Relieve Stress: Dry brushing your skin has effects similar to receiving a massage. It can help calm your mind, reduces tension, and ease your stress. 
  • Aid Lymphatic System: Dry brushing will fuel your lymph nodes and help the body rid itself of toxins and extra water. This will lessen the likelihood of lymphatic inflammation
  • Help Digestion: Brushing opens up your skin’s pores; this helps the skin absorb nutrients. Healthy skin with open pores can improve your overall health.

These are some excellent reasons why you should consider adding dry skin brushing to your daily routine. If you have any questions about dry skin brushing, feel free to contact Constance Jones - Colon Hydrotherapy. Colonics also improve the health and beauty of the skin by cleansing the large intestine.
