Dry Body Brush Set – $17

Dry body brushing is a century-old purification technique still popular in many cultures today. In Korea, the symbolism of a snake shedding it’s skin is one of the motivations for the country’s thriving spa culture. Men and women routinely visit spas to “shed their outer layer” and detoxify the system.

This kit includes a set of two, 100% Boar’s Bristle Brushes. (5″ x 3″) Why did I include two? Because it’s easier with two brushes: one brush on each hand, to cover the entire body with sweeping swirling strokes. When a healthy practice can be more time efficient and have a kinetic flow – we are more likely to stick with it as a daily routine.

Benefits of a dry body brushing practice:
Reduce inflammation
Remove dead skin cells
Soften skin
Increases skin cell renewal
Stirs away cellulite*
Stimulate circulation
Promotes good health and immunity by aiding in lymphatic drainage

* Body brushing has been suggested by many publications as a remedy for reducing cellulite.
(One of my favorites is Howard Murad M.D. 2005, The Cellulite Solution) Be open to researching complimentary habits and aware of predispositions. Use with discretion and of course, consult your doctor before use.

This kit includes directions for use, and a cute mini bag.
