The Incredible Benefits of Dry Skin Brushing and Breathing Boost Oxygen Beauty

Our skin is amazing! It removes impurities, helps regulate our body’s temperature and is fantastic at helping us look and feel great. It’s responsible for one – quarter of the body’s detoxification each day! It is so important that we give our skin a helping hand to keep it working to its full potential. Great skin also improves the way we feel about ourselves as glowing, healthy skin promoting a sense of wellbeing.

Lightly brushing the skin stimulates blood and lymphatic circulation, removes dead skin cells and encourages new cell growth. Dry skin brushing helps control cellulite by bringing nutrients and oxygen to the upper layer of skin – the epidermis. Although there are no blood vessels in the epidermis, the dermis located underneath is rich with blood vessels which supply the epidermis with nutrients and oxygen. The more nutrients and oxygen supplied by these blood vessels the healthier your skin will look and feel! A few breaths of Boost Oxygen Beauty will energise, oxygenate and kickstart the detoxification process. 

A firm, natural bristle brush with a long handle will allow you to reach the entire back and easily brush the bottoms of fee and the backs of the legs. Always brush towards the heart in firm strokes which should feel invigorating but never hurt! Start at the feet and work up the body, brushing towards the heart paying special attention to rougher skin areas such as elbows and heels as well as lymph rich areas – the inner thighs and underarms.

Skin is more delicate on the face and is more complex. However, the same amazing benefits of brushing apply to brushing the face! Make sure to use lighter strokes than body brushing as facial skin is lighter and thinner especially under and around the eyes. Brush with gentle upward motions away from the direction of the heart to encourage circulation. Always start at the centre of the décolleté and move in gentle, circular motions anti clockwise, gradually working up the neck and onto the face. One side at a time, sweep across the eye area from the inner to outer corners, before sweeping the brush in downward motions from the sides of the face to the collarbone to help encourage lymph drainage.

Face brushing should be done less often than body brushing. Dry, mature and normal skin can benefit from 2 face brushings a week and oily skin 4 brushings a week. Brushing oily skin can help keep blemishes away as toxins and bacteria are released, unclogging pores. Never dry brush on cuts, open sores or blemishes. Brush on a clean dry face and afterwards rinse with water and then apply your favourite serum or moisturiser. We then recommend taking a few breaths of Boost Oxygen Beauty and drinking a glass of water to aid the detoxification process.
