How to brush your skin for lymph drainage

I recently shared with you why it’s so important to help our body’s lymphatic drainage. It supports healthy immune function, detoxification and cancer prevention; not to mention that it’s an incredible practice for boosting skin suppleness and glow.

This is my last blog post of 2013 and I want you to start 2014 on a healthy note. If you’re ready for a powerful start to the new year, check out the Winter Detox starting on January 10th. Everyone in the program will get a skin brush and oils to boost their detox right off the bat.

Happy new year!  And happy skin brushing!

    Great video – I’ll be trying this tonight! I’m not quite ready for a full-on detox…yet. I suspect it would include getting rid of my Diet Coke!

    Thanks for the video, Morella! Can’t wait to try this. Happy New Year!

    Why oil before rather than after showering?

    • Great question! Because the heat of the shower will help the skin absorb the oil and moisturize it better. It will also help you prevent over-stripping your skin with soap and water, because soap and water are very drying. The oil helps the protective qualities of your skin (especially if you use coconut oil because it’s naturally anti-fungal and somewhat anti-viral/bacterial) and when you wash the excess off, you don’t need to soap up to get an effective cleanse.

    Okay – a question. How often do you recommend doing this? daily? Weekly?

    • Great question! I meant to mention it in the video and forgot. I do this weekly. You can do it more often, especially if you’re coming down with a cold or need to boost your immune system. Or anyone who has fluid retention issues can also consider doing all sorts of lymph treatments (massage, skin brushing, bouncing, etc.) on a more regular basis.
