Dry skin brushing may be the single most important therapy you add to your live juice cleanse.
Your skin is your third-largest elimination organ (behind the kidneys and the lungs) and eliminates a quarter of the toxins from your body! It’s respnsible for removing dead cells and sweat, which contain waste products.
That’s why your skin is the first and most obvious organ to show symptoms of imbalance or toxicity. How often have you had a friend exclaim, “You look so tired!” after a long night of partying or a period of poor eating?
Dead skin cells, excreted wastes and external pollution (including dirt and skin care products) can build up and clog your pores, inhibiting your skin from effectively releasing toxins. As a result, you may experience rashes, acne, hives, itchiness, body odor, or even eczema and psoriasis.
Furthermore, toxins that are unable to escape through the skin are either stored in fat cells – contributing to cellulite and other fatty deposits – or are re-circulated back into the blood stream, overworking the kidneys, liver and other detox organs.
A seemingly simple and easy therapy like dry skin brushing can have a huge overall impact on your whole body health – you will literally look and feel more radiant in your own skin!
