As we age our bodies become inactive. With aging our bodies become less efficient in performing the basic tasks such as shedding the outer layer of dead skin.

Dry skin brushing helps keeps the pores clear and let`s your skin breathe naturally. It leaves the skin to absorb the oils which are applied on it after bathing.
Why you should dry-brush each day?

By dry brushing you will be increasing the blood circulation and reduce the cellulite present on your body. It even helps in losing weight and makes your skin glowing and pure again.
When we dry-brush our skin, we are basically aiming at removing the dead skin cells which are accumulated on our skin. We remove these dead cells by brushing them away and give way to new skin which is brighter and smoother. It even helps tackle ingrown hairs while improving the skin tone.
