Dry brushing is a type of Ayurvedic medicine that has been around for a very long time. It’s believed to have many health benefits.
Some of the benefits may include:
- Stimulating the lymphatic system
- Exfoliating the skin
- Helping the body rid itself of toxins
- Increasing circulation and energy
- Helping to break down cellulite.
Dry brushing works by exfoliating the skin. Practitioners of dry brushing rub a brush with coarse, natural-fiber bristles over their bodies in a particular pattern. The idea is that the coarse fibers will help to remove dead skin and improve the skin’s ability to eliminate toxins through the pores.
