We all know how difficult it is to remove cellulite. It seems half of the beauty industry focuses on fighting this problem. Simply put, Cellulite is fat tissue below the skin’s surface. Cellulite is what gives the lumpy, dimpled appearance to the skin. It is common to both men and women, and it is not even necessary that this occurs only in overweight people. There is plenty of information around the net, but can (dry) brushing help in removing cellulite?
The answer is Yes! Using cellulite brushes can definitely help!
Dry brushing is using a soft-bristled cellulite brush (preferably natural) and massaging your body with it, performing small circular motions as you cover the entire area, but particularly the spots where cellulite is present.
This can be done 2-3 times per week, but more useful is when you make this a part of your daily bath routine. We have seen a significant reduction of Cellulite in our tests, and also noticed allied effects of a Smoother & Softer skin.
This process removes dead skin, clears clogged pores and improves Blood Circulation.
Dr. Gohara, a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology, says that Dry Brushing motion stimulates the lymphatic system. This, thereby, flushes out toxins and waste from our body.
The other effect is Exfoliation that clears pores by removing dead and dry skin – this is a trademark of younger looking healthy skin.
It a no-brainer, that if cellulite is your problem, dry brushing can definitely help. However, care should be taken in choosing the correct brush. Hard, synthetic bristles will cause irritation or even (microscopic) cuts on your skin.
Also, you should take care that you are not overdoing the brushing part. For the initial days, start slow and gradually increase the frequency. You will notice the changes soon.
