Ah, toxins — that modern-day bugaboo the spa crowd has been attacking with increasing ferocity; first internally, with high colonics and BluePrint juice cleanses, and now externally, with dry brushing, an ancient ritual once done in Japan and Greece. They seem so miraculous, in fact, that it’s a wonder more people do not incorporate dry brushing into their regular regimen. The truth, however, is that many people are simply unaware of what dry brushing actually is. Learning about the rewards the skin reaps as a result of dry brushing is the first step in incorporating it into a beauty routine. Dry brushing offers numerous benefits:
Exfoliation – Our skin is our largest organ and is also our largest waste removal system. Removing dead cells allows healthy and new cells to receive nutrients from the sun and from oils you may put on your body, which in turn will give your skin a natural glow.
Cellulite Reduction – Cellulite can be a common problem for many people. Caused by trapped toxins in fat cells, cellulite can be reduced by regular dry brushing practice. The motions of brushing help stimulate fat cells, which aids in releasing the toxins.

Soft Skin – Through dead skin removal, dry brushing also unclogs your pores, aiding in nutrient absorption and directly allowing your skin to become soft and supple.
Immune System Support
Wouldn’t it be great if that pesky cold’s duration could be diminished even just a little bit? Dry brushing provides an excellent source of support to the immune system by stimulating the body’s lymphatic system. In return, toxins are drained and thus the body is detoxified. This is essentially an interval workout for the body – dry brushing reaches out to those areas that cannot be touched by the human hand.
