Another important role your skin – support optimal detoxification.
But if your skin is overrun with toxins or dead skin cells, it can not effectively excrete products of metabolism from the body.In this case, the invaluable role of dry-brushing
that not only exfoliates dead skin cells, but also activates the excretion of metabolic products via lymph nodes. In addition, dry rubbing has many advantages, including:
- Stimulates the lymphatic system
The lymphatic system in the body responsible for excretion of cellular waste products. On hundreds of kilometers of lymphatic tubules they are collected from tissues and are transported in the blood for excretion, a process called "lymph drainage".
If the lymphatic system is not working as it should, the body can accumulate waste and toxins, causing you to feel bad. Lymphatic congestion is one of the main factors leading to inflammation and disease. Stimulating the lymphatic system and helping it release toxins, dry brush is a powerful auxiliary means of detoxification.
Dry brush removes dead dry skin, improving complexion, cleanses clogged pores and allows the skin to "breathe".

Dry brush can help to soften hard fat deposits under the skin so they are more evenly distributed. This can help to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

- Improves digestion and kidney function
Dry rubbing has a more profound effect, helping to support digestion and organ function. According to one expert on skin care and overall improvement:
"... many doctors-naturopaths prescribe dry rubbing with the bloating, as massage of the lymph nodes helps the body get rid of excess water and toxins. One of the immediate results of dry brushing is smoother skin, but it also helps to improve digestion, kidney function and much more."
Many people are "hooked" on dry rubbing of the skin (in a good way), simply because it is very nice. Along with a glowing and more elastic skin, fans of this method have reported a feeling of vivacity arising after short grinding.
