** What is dry brushing method? **
Accurate dry comb is an ancient nutritional method derived from Indian folk medicine. Dry brushing is done by using a soft and dry brush to rub the body in the direction of the heart (starting from the feet and hands, brushing towards the chest).
** Benefits of dry brushing **
1. Support circulation of lymphatic system
The lymphatic system is a major part of the immune system, helping the body eliminate toxins. It is made up of lymphatic organs including lymph nodes, lymph nodes / lymphatic vessels that transport lymph throughout the body. Dry brushing is thought to be able to stimulate lymphatic flow in the body, thereby stimulating natural and effective elimination of toxins.
2. Remove dead skin
This benefit is easily noticed in the first time using the dry brush method. The process of running a brush on the skin helps soften the dead skin layers and removes them naturally. The result is much less dry and soft skin after a few days to several weeks from the start.
3. Clean and shrink pores
In addition to dead cells, dry combs also help clean excess oil, dirt and debris deep in pores, making them airier and tighter over time, and the skin is smoother.

4. Reducing skin lumpiness (Cellulite)
The skin is also called "orange peel skin" formed because the subcutaneous fat tissue bulges and emerges, creating unevenness on the surface of the skin, very aesthetic. Brushing dry skin helps soften these adipose tissues, dispersing them evenly. This also makes it easier to remove them.
5. Stimulates blood circulation under the skin
Like massage movements, dry brush stimulates blood circulation under the skin, helps skin firm, and healthy.
