10. Dry brushing
It is normal to brush our hair and teeth regularly. What about your skin? Why is that an exception? Dry brushing has become very popular because of its potential benefits. They go from healthier-looking skin to healing lymphatic drainage.
Usually, it’s recommended before showering. The direction should be from the feet toward the chest. Don’t forget that you are doing a big favor to your skin. It will thank you later. Dry brushing promotes the normal lymph flow by transporting lymph through the body. It also helps with removing dead skin cells and exfoliating the skin. Therefore, the skin is softer and nourished.
By regularly brushing your skin, the first signs of improvement will show up sooner than you have expected. It will open up your pores and allow your skin to breathe. Tighter skin and an improved texture are always wanted, so don’t hesitate to try this method.
- Before you start to brush, make sure that your skin is clean. Dryness is important to watch for because of the use of moisturizer later. Start slowly and be gentle to your skin. Being too harsh can cause redness and irritation.
