Dry brushing is a natural skin care technique that involves brushing your body , or even your face, dry with a natural bristle brush .

We tend to forget it, but the skin is the largest organ in the human body and, like the liver, kidneys or even the lungs, it allows in particular to eliminate the toxins present inside our body.

Indeed, we easily notice that when the liver or the kidneys are overwhelmed, it is our skin which takes over by becoming oily with imperfections or dry with eczema, by producing body odor ... It is therefore important to activate its lymphatic system which acts as a daily purification station for the skin .

Just below the skin is the lymphatic network . We are often told about the blood system but little about the lymphatic system because it is impossible to collect or analyze like blood.

Unlike the blood system, the lymphatic network works without the heart and therefore without a pump to diffuse lymph. This is distributed according to the movements of our body, the contractions of muscles and lymphatic vessels and can be stimulated in particular by dry brushing.

This lymphatic drainage technique aims to stimulate the circulation of lymph therefore boosts the immune system.
