There are so many ways to take care of your health, it can be overwhelming. I get that. When reading different magazines, blogs and books I realize how many things I could be doing! Unfortunately, there are not enough hours in the day and not all the “healthy” things that are suggested seem appealing. So I say, pick and choose. Find things that you can relate to or you are drawn to.
One habit I was interested in forming was skin brushing. Skin brushing is a quick routine that is done before showering. All it involves is getting a dry brush and quickly brushing your skin. Start at your feet and brush your way to your heart, then start at your hands and brush your way back to your heart again, don’t forget your armpits which is a big lymph area. Do a circular motion around your belly and if you are female you can very gently brush around your breasts.Throughout this entire brushing don’t press too hard, it shouldn’t hurt!
Skin brushing gets your lymph nodes flowing which boosts your immune system and purifies your body. Brushing scuffs away dead skin, aids in releasing toxins, firms the skin and gives you overall healthy skin!
I’ve been skin brushing for a few months now and have been enjoying it. It wakes me up and invigorates my skin! In terms of other benefits, most of them are internal so I haven’t noticed much, but I will be on the lookout!
I bought the Yerba Prima Tampico Skin Brush, which I really like, it’s easy to reach all areas of my back. The only downfall is the brush top falls off when I store it in a hanging position.Photo Source (with more information on skin brushing).
