How to Do Skin Brushing

Skin is your major protector from germs and bacteria, maintaining body temperature and discarding toxins and other waste materials. You can revitalize your skin by dry brushing it. Brushing your skin refreshes it by not only getting rid of dead cells but also helping skin growth. Furthermore, it instigates lymph system i.e. the system which helps you in getting rid of toxins and waste from your body and is part of your immune system. Remember that lymph fluid not only bring nutrients to your cells but also take away wastes. The waste is excreted as sweat or dead cells. Thus skin brushing not only removes these dead cells but also keep the lymph moving. As a result, your skin pores are not clogged and the waste easily wards off.
