The body is overwhelmed with toxins which are everywhere in the air, water, and food. It has its own system that eliminates the present toxins and waste out of the body, but these systems sometimes get overburdened which can lead to numerous health issues.
Therefore, we need to help our body in this process by using gentle-detox practices which can refresh the entire system, ease the waste and toxin elimination out of the body. Those are: consumption of fresh lemon juice or apple cider vinegar in warm water, taking a detox bath, eating healthy fruits and veggies, doing yoga, drinking freshly squeezed juices, enhancing body’s energy, lowering stress, helping digestion, and clearing the mind.
The organs that are involved in the cleansing process are kidneys, lungs, liver, colon and the largest body organ that needs regular detoxification is the skin. Your skin will become healthy, glowing, and radiant, if you use the dry brushing method.
In this treatment the dry brushing is done with stiff strong bristles, and natural fibers. However, the bristles are not supposed to be too soft, yet the skin should not be harmed with scratches.

When you are still naked, begin with the top of one foot, and then go upwards all the way to the arm and chest, performing gentle circular movements towards the heart.
Do the same procedure to the other side of the body; however do not use any harsh movements so that you can prevent irritations and scratches. Apply the same procedure and on your back, and ensure to dry brush the whole body from the feet to the neck. We advise you not to dry brush your face except if you have a special facial brush.
After you have finished dry brushing, have another shower to rinse off the dead skin cells. Enhance your blood circulation by using water with a temperature from warm to hot.
Do this treatment prior having a shower, or 3 to 4 times a week. Begin with this treatment and enjoy its incredible results.
