Bestow Dry Brushing & Bath Time Ritual
A relaxing and detoxifying skincare and self-care ritual
Did you know that your skin is one of the body’s key elimination organs? Dry brushing is a simple ritual that enhances the detoxification process. Many water-soluble wastes from our bodies can be eliminated through perspiration. Dry-brushing improves the efficiency of this process on the surface of the skin as well as removing excess dead skin cells. It also encourages elimination on a cellular level by stimulating the blood and lymphatic system just beneath the surface of the skin. This enhances the cleansing process and indirectly aids the immune function, improving lymphatic drainage throughout the body.
Dry brushing also increases the blood flow that delivers oxygen and other nutrients to the skin. If you dry-brush daily, your skin will be noticeably smoother with improved colour, texture and clarity.
Invest in a bottle of Lavender Essential Oil (available from health shops) and add a few drops to your bath while it is running. Essential oil fragrances are proven to have a positive effect on the psyche and lavender offers a calming and balancing fragrance which helps to soothe anxiety and reduce stress. If you have very sensitive skin,we recommend only using 1 drop to start.
In addition, add a handful of Epsom Salts (magnesium sulphate crystals) to your bath which will enhance your body’s detoxification process. Magnesium also supports muscle and nerve function so is very helpful for improving sleep and easing aches and pains. Epsom Salts are available from most pharmacies and supermarkets.
