Dry brushing is a fantastic health practice to exfoliate dry skin, increase circulation and improve the drainage of toxins via the lymphatic system. For best results brush your skin when it is dry, because plant bristles exfoliate dry skin best when they are dry. If plant bristles are wet, they become soft and clump together and you don’t get the same results. If you are a morning person, I would dry brush quickly before you hop into a shower. Alternatively, if you prefer to spend the time at night, this will be a good way to unwind, brush one hour before heading to bed, so you will enjoy a good nights sleep.
"The vitality of internal organs, working properly, transcends your skin and brings radiance to your face." Dry brushing your face with soft plant bristle can rejuvenate tired, dull skin.
Exfoliation is one of the most important parts of a beauty regimen. It rejuvenates and energizes your skin and improves circulation. All of these combined result in a better, healthier looking complexion.
Dry body brushing is a traditional natural health practice, which involves brushing over the skin dry, followed by a shower or bath.
A lot of benefits of dry body brushing are not necessarily something you can only see… but also what you feel. My clients tell me they feel energised after brushing and the reason for that is body brushing stimulates our circulatory system. Dry body brushing stimulates the connective tissue attached to the capillaries sitting under the skin, to improve circulation travelling to the heart. It also assists the lymphatic flow around the body. The lymph relies on muscle movement to pass through the body so if you are not an active person, dry body brushing is a wonderful tool to stimulate the lymph flow so that you are ridding the body of waste and toxins daily. Some key benefits of dry body brushing are:
I like to carry a small Rose Quartz crystal with me in my handbag. Rose Quartz is a pink coloured crystal believed to have heart-healing properties. It encourages healthy self-love, and can bestow compassion, forgiveness and acceptance. Rose Quartz is also soothing, calming and reduces stress and tension.
Did you know that we have added the unique vibrations of Rose Quartz to all our KORA Organics products. The filtered water in the KORA Organics products is infused with the energy of the Rose Quartz crystal, so that vibration of love and intent flows through the crystals, into the products and onto you!
If you require a heartier skin routine as the seasons change, trade in your foaming cleanser for a creamy formulation. The KORA Organics Cream Cleanser gently cleanses away impurities, make up and congestion without leaving a filmy residue.
Dr. Ian Mussman gives us the skinny on Good Fats Vs. Bad Fats
All fats are not created equal.
I recommend that everyone educate themselves so that they include the good fats in their diet and avoid the bad ones.
In my experience, most people don’t get enough good fats in their diet. This can lead to a variety of issues, some of them serious.
For instance, fi you are deficient in good fats, your skin, connective tissues, and joints dry up. Importantly, your brain and nervous system also require a lot of good fats to function optimally.
Did you know that you should feed your skin the way you feed your body?
Something I learned from KORA Organics: if you are going to give your skin real, certified organic “food,” then you should probably feed your skin more than once a day.
Three times a day would be better.
Why? Because certified organic skin care such as KORA, which is primarily composed of plant-derived certified organic ingredients, is healthy for your skin because its organic makeup allows it to be taken in by the skin cells, circulated, and excreted… just the way our body cells do with food.
