We have all noticed changes in our skin quality as we have aged, yet you may be wondering what we can do to keep it looking vital and healthy as long as possible. Eating healthy, organic foods and exercising are both obvious ways of doing this, however I’d like to share two things you may not know of.
The first is Dry Skin Brushing. This daily routine will stimulate and detoxify your skin by sloughing off dead skin cells, while also increasing blood flow. Dry Skin Brushing can also smooth, tone/tighten your skin, even out fat deposits, reducing cellulite, revitalize your lymph and nervous systems and help your skin absorb nutrients.
To include this practice in your daily life, simply purchase a natural sisal brush at your local health food store. When skin brushing always start at your extremities and move toward your heart with straight or circular strokes, carefully avoiding rashes or other irritations/wounds. When completed take a shower to wash away your skin debris.
Another affective way of detoxifying your skin is to use a Lymphatic Oil. Often times, especially in women we can see an “orange peel” skin on thighs, buttocks, and the upper arms and breast area that denotes a sluggish lymph system, an unpleasant appearance, and in time, a deficient immune system.
By targeting these affected areas with a Lymphatic Oil, your lymph will be quickly stimulated, allowing proper flow and detoxification. You can purchase Lymphatic Oil on my website under First Aid Aromatherapy Products for only $17 an oz.
