Whenever we talk about a DETOX program we are normally referring to an alkalizing diet and/or drink program that consist of leafy green vegetables and green drinks. But, in order to thoroughly reap the benefits of a detox program there are a few key steps that we can do at home that shouldn’t be overlooked. In the upcoming weeks I will share and break down each step that you can do at home to complete your program. Let’s get started…
The first thing that you can do that may be the missing piece to a complete detox program from the inside out is Skin Brushing. The skin is the largest elimination organ, it is often referred to as the third kidney because it is responsible for 10 to 15% of total body elimination. Dry skin brushing is an efficient and powerful way to enhance the detoxification process and it gives you amazing results to your detox program. Including this method will improve the appearance of your skin by eliminating dead cells and helping new skin to regenerate, it also stimulates blood circulation, the lymphatic system, and significantly improves toxin elimination.
Cellulite reduction is one of the most sought after results of skin brushing due to the massaging of the skin that stimulates the fatty deposits underneath the skin. Brushing the skin stimulates the lymphatic system which is considered to be one of the best natural internal cleansers. The lymphatic system is composed of lymph vessels, lymph nodes, and organs which makes up part of the body’s defense system that removes microorganisms and other foreign substances. Ultimately acting as a filtration system that keeps bacteria from entering the bloodstream.
So, skin brushing is a great way to promote blood circulation, cell regeneration, detoxification, weight loss and cellulite reduction as well as improve tone and skin radiance – why wouldn’t you want to make this practice a part of your daily routine.
