Dry skin brushing is an excellent way in removing the
old top layer of skin and let a new clean layer of skin come to the surface.
This will help the pores of the skin from clogging and holding in toxic waste.
Your whole body should be brushed three to five minutes, on dry skin before you
shower or bathe.
Recommended by many alternative health care providers,
including Dr Bernard Jensen, dry skin brushing is an excellent way to ramp up
the detoxification through your skin, can be used year round or along with a
body cleansing program.
Other benefits of dry skin brushing:
As well as increasing blood circulation, stimulating
the lymphatic system, stimulating hormones and oil producing glands as well as
nerve endings, dry brushing improves general health and helps prevent premature
aging of the skin.
‘’I believe skin brushing is one of the finest of all
baths. No soap can wash the skin as clean as the new skin you have under the
old. Skin brushing removes the skin’s top layer. This helps eliminate... waste
acids in the body. Keep the skin active. No one can be well wearing clothes
unless they brush their skin.’’ Bernard Jensen DC, from Tissue Cleansing through Bowel Management, 1981.
BODY BRUSH:Your body skin
brush should be a detachable long-handled natural vegetable bristle brush. The
long handle is attached for those hard-to-get-at places.
COMPLEXION BRUSH: Your face should be brushed with a special soft-bristle complexion brush.
When using a new brush, be very gentle in your
brushing because of the new stiff bristles.
