Dry Skin Brushing

According to Peter Bennnett, N.D., author of the 7-Day Detox Miracle, dry skin brushing is an easy way to stimulate the lymph system, which in turn, enhances the body's natural detoxification processes.

Dry skin brushing is remarkable. It is simple to do, inexpensive, wonderfully self-nurturing, and benefits about a dozen different body systems. When you practice dry skin brushing, you are helping your lymph system cleanse itself of the toxins that collect in the lymph glands. You also improve the surface circulation of the skin and open the pores of the skin, encouraging your body's discharge of metabolic wastes and other toxins. Read on for more on the other health and beauty benefits of dry skin brushing as well as tips for how to get the most out of dry skin brushing.

The skin is one of the most important organs of elimination and cleansing. It is the largest organ in the body and is responsible for one-fourth of the body's detoxification each day. The condition of our skin not only affects how we look, but many facets of how our body functions internally, especially with the body's natural process of keeping itself cleansed and healthy.
