The skin is the largest and most important organ of the human. It is a complex system consisting of nerves, glands and cell layers.

- the outer layer (epidermis) and the inner layer (dermis), which produces antibacterial substances, protects the body from damage, infection, chemicals, from penetration of microorganisms, as well as taking sunbaths, allows the body to produce an important hormone - vitamin D.
One of the most important roles of skin is detoxification. When skin accumulate toxins and dead cells, it prevents the excretion of metabolic waste (marsh) from the body. For the detoxification of the body, dry rubbing with a brush is a great solution, which mechanically exfoliates dead skin cells, helps disperse the lymph through the system and prevent its stagnation, thereby activating the excretion of metabolic wastes.

The advantages of dry grinding:
✔️Stimulation of the lymphatic system
The lymphatic system is responsible for the elimination of cellular waste and toxins. They are collected from the lymphatic system from tissues and transferred into the blood for elimination - this process is called “lymphatic drainage”. Stimulating the lymphatic system helps to remove toxins. Dry rubbing with a brush causes the lymph to “speed up” and allow lymph to do it job to cleanse the body of toxins, swamp and excess fluid and removing puffiness. It is a powerful detoxification aid.
✔️Exfoliates the skin, evens out its texture and improves colour
Exfoliation process: Dry rubbing with a brush removes dead skin cells from the skin but living cells are not damaged. It improves circulation, increases blood flow to the skin, which helps to eliminate metabolic waste accumulation. Starts the process of regeneration - cell renewal. Cleans clogged pores and allows the skin to "breathe." As a result, the skin becomes smooth and elastic.
✔️ Cellulite
Do not think that dry brushing will get rid of cellulite. It is a temporary effect of brushing because skin swells slightly and gives an impression of cellulites has gone. Fighting cellulites requires life style change.
✔️ Improves digestion and kidney function
✔️ improves the digestive system, stimulates and improves metabolic processes.
✔️ Relieves stress
✔️ Invigorates and energizes. ⠀

You will notice first changes on your skin after a couple of weeks.

Technique:
Dry rubbing is carried out ONLY with a dry brush on dry skin. All movements should be in the direction of the lymph which is from bottom to the top until you reach to the chest. Rubbing the skin, press on the brush quite noticeably, but it should not hurt. Feel the strength of the touch (do not rub the skin strongly). You can do it as much as you want, but 5-10 minutes is enough.

Start with the legs — from the feet, ankles, and lower legs and raise higher on the legs. Motion should be slow from bottom to up.
Buttocks - better to massage in a circular motion.
Arms. Start with your palms, then brush your hands, moving from your fingers to your shoulders.
Back. The direction of movement is from the waist to the neck.
Stomach. Massage the skin with a brush in a circular motion clockwise - improves digestion.
Finish by rubbing the neck and chest. Downwards movement on the neck. In this area, the skin is very thin and sensitive so be careful, you do not need to push hard on the brush.
Continue rubbing until skin turns slightly pink. This is a signal of increased blood circulation.
Dry rubbing should be done daily.
I advise you to finalize the process with a contrast shower!

Restrictions: Do not rub the face. Do not rub damaged skin (cuts, scratches, rashes). If there is irritation on the skin, sores or minor injuries - wait until everything heals! Avoid the area of warts and hanging moles.
Brush selection:
You will need a high quality dry brush. With natural bristles and from natural materials. The villi of such brushes are as thin as possible at the tips, due to which they do not scratch or irritate the skin. To the touch it should be tough, but not too much. The perfect brush is with a long handle so you can reach the whole back and other hard-to-reach places.
