BENEFITS OF DRY BRUSHING

Dry brushing is such a lovely way to nurture yourself and your body. All you have to do is brush your body, and it gets your lymphatic system moving and your blood circulation going, which stimulates your cells are gives new glow and energy to your skin 💕✨

I love to dry brush my body before a shower, and then after a shower give myself a little oil massage – that just makes my skin feel so soft and nourished, and I really feel like I do something good for myself and my body!

I have been dry brushing for years, and it’s actually an old Ayurvedic practice that is recommended because of its health benefits – and its skin benefits.

HOW TO GET GLOWING SKIN WITH FACIAL MASSAGES

Do you want to get glowing skin? Then facial massages is for sure something to look into! This can help your skin to look more young, plump and glowing! 💕✨

If you want to get more glowing skin, then your skin needs a good blood circulation. You can get that through several different ways – such as giving yourself a face massage with your bare hands, or you can also use tools such as fx a Gua Sha or a Glow Roller (like the one on the picture).

By massaging your skin it increases blood circulation, and it is through our blood that the skin gets the nutrients it needs. This also stimulates the collagen production, which is what helps your skin to looking young and plump. Using a gua sha or glow roller also helps to stimulate the lymphatic system, and by giving gentle strokes up around your neck you’ll give yourself a lymphatic drainage massage.

Your lymphatic system gets rid of toxins, so this is also really good to help remove toxins from your skin.

Regular face massages can help your skin to looking young, plump, prevent fine lines and wrinkles and give you that healthy looking glow! It’s a natural way to enhance your own beauty – and I absolutely love it + it’s such a relaxing and calming practice.

I have started using my Glow Roller every morning. First I do a little morning meditation, often with focus on positive affirmations, then I write down my gratitude list in my Fiveminutejournal and then I spend 2-5 minutes ‘rolling’ my skin with the Glow Roller (I use mix of jojoba and rosehip oil on my skin when doing it) – and of course I have my daily cup of Green Tea along with this little morning practice 💕✨

But of course, since we’re all about Holistic Health in here, I have to mention that just giving yourself face massages isn’t going to magical transform your skin – you also need to look at the things you put into your body (food, water), your stress levels, if you’re moving your body and speaking kindly and lovingly to yourself.

Do you give yourself regular face massages? Or have you tried using a Gua Sha or a Glow Roller?

If you want tutorials as how to use either Gua Sha or a Glow Roller, then I’ll recommend checking out Calmishcph or Tina Lykkegaard’s Instagram .
