It’s something the owners of any reputable Philadelphia spa will tell you: there’s a lot to be gained from undergoing dry skin brushing on your spa day.
This practice, also known simply as “dry brushing,” is what is sounds like: scrubbing your dry skin with a brush. Here are a few reasons you should consider dry brushing on your spa day.
Dry brushing stimulates your lymphatic system
Your lymphatic system has important job: eliminating cellular waste products. When it’s not working, waste and toxins collect in your body and make you sick. Dry brushing stimulates this system and helps release toxins.
Dry brushing increases circulation
Dry brushing your skin increase circulation, encouraging the elimination of metabolic waste.
Dry brushing helps exfoliation
When the dry brush moves over your skin, it removes dead skin cells. This not only makes your skin look better, it also unclogs your pores and allow your skin to breathe.
Dry brushing relieves stress
We’ve seen dry brushing compared to a light whole-body massage. It can reduce muscle tension, relax your mind and help relieve stress.
Dry brushing decreases cellulite
Dry brushing can help reduce cellulite by softening hard fat deposits below the skin and distribute fat more evenly, reducing the appearance of cellulite.
Dry brushing helps your kidneys
Dry brushing’s benefits go beyond the skin. It can help you shed excess water and toxins, which can improve digestion and kidney function.
Dry brushing just feels good
The last benefit of dry brushing may be the best one: Many users report feeling invigorated after their session, and can’t wait for the next one.
