Skin dry brushing is one of the most effective ways to detox and help the body rid itself of toxins and acidity.
If the pores are clogged toxins get stuck inside our body and the other organs of elimination have to work much harder.
The skin is actually the largest of these organs in charge of eliminating toxins. It eliminates up to two pounds of toxins per day, as much as the colon. Therefore skin brushing is essential for your all natural detox.
Use a natural vegetable fiber dry brush for dry brushing like the one on the right. These can be found in a health food store. The bristles are hard so you simply brush your skin very lightly.
