Dry Brushing

Dry brushing is an invigorating way to support the skin and the body as a whole. It is said that 1/3 of the bodies toxins are excreted through the pores; dry brushing exfoliates the skin and helps to unclog the pores. As it encourages circulation, it also exercises and supports the lymphatic system through gentle stimulation of the glands as you glide the brush over your body. And a healthy lymphatic system is the foundation of a healthy immune system!
How to Dry Brush:
With a dry, natural bristle brush, apply your preferred pressure, and gently brush your skin. Starting at your extremities, brush toward the center of your body. Avoid the groin, breasts, and face. It's best to brush before bathing.

And, to really help detox the body, at the end of your shower take a 10-30 second cold plunge! This helps the blood return to your vital organs to replenish your body systems, as well as stimulate your nervous system.
