We thought we’d look for a few eczema treatment products to potentially add to our store. Our searching of the Web led us to dry skin brushing which helps shed dead skin cells, improve skin texture and cell renewal.
It’s an interesting idea, so we thought we’d share it with you:
Dry skin brushing increases circulation which encourages your body to release its toxins. Blood flow increases, tightening the skin, giving your skin a more youthful appearance.
There are many other things dry skin brushing can do for the body from stimulating lymph glands and nerve endings to reducing cellulite, but we feel one of its most important benefits is it helps un-clog pores, allowing your skin to better absorb vital nutrients.
How to do it:
- Buy a long handled (for those hard to reach places), natural brush
- It should be performed once or twice a day, preferably before showering / bathing
- Brush in long sweeping strokes, overlapping as you go, and moving from your extremities inwards.
- Avoid broken skin
- Don’t forget to clean your brush, using soap and water, each week.
If anyone is already dry skin brushing, please get in touch to tell us how you’ve found it. Unfortunately, we don’t sell brushes but if enough people think they are worthwhile we will try to find a stockist.
