Garshana-Dry Skin Brushing

Our skin as you may know is the largest organ we have, our epidermis, and it takes in the elements around us just as much as our other senses. Often the skin gets stagnant and needs help sloughing off or renewing the outer most layer of skin cells. An important piece of ayurvedic health care is to apply oil to the body (oil self-massage or abhyanga), preferably warm oil and before showering although anytime can be a good time. But it is beneficial to stimulate the skin and lymphatic system first. Those who get bumps or feel their skin is clogged could especially benefit from this and anyone with an epidermis, so that's probably you and everyone you know.
To stimulate the skin and lymphatic system and to help allow the skin to properly absorb oil and moisture, use a dry bath brush and brush the skin. So you'll use the brush dry, and before showering. You can also purchase garshana gloves (raw silk garshana gloves are available at lifespa.com or amazon or ebay).
The strokes are done toward the heart:
  • from wrists, up arms toward the heart
  • from ankles, up legs toward the heart
  • up the back
  • brush inwards from the underarms toward the heart
  • then brush from the center of the chest out to one side and then the other
  • to finish off you can gently brush the belly in a clock wise motion as if the clock was facing outward

Doing this not only prepares the skin to more efficiently absorb the oil, but also invigorates the lymphatic system, an important piece of our over health.

Our lymphatic system is our drainage system and not only helps move toxins out of the body but functions to alert the body and carries lymph, fluid filled infection fighting white blood cells, throughout the body. The lymphatic system has lymph nodes, vessels and helpful organs like the spleen, tonsils, adenoids, and thymus but also there's the lymphatic connection to ama, waste matter, and to the nadis, the 72,000 channels throughout our body. Keeping movement of the fluids flowing with circulatory skin brushing helps to clear and balance these systems and allows for less clogging of skin and better processing of oils applied topically.

Give dry skin brushing a try, daily before you apply oil, then hop in the shower, or just try routinely upon waking in the morning.

Using lemon is best for those who has oily skin issue like me as I have experimented it last week. My face is so beautiful after a week's use of lemon drops so my opinion for all is use lemon drops thrice a day.

Lemon is astringent and great for kapha type skin which would be more oily in nature. That’s great news that you’ve found lemon oils’s healing properties through your own experimentation. Blessings, M

I have been using these gloves for three weeks. Even my teenage daughter noticed a difference in my skin! Naturally, now I have to order a pair for her. Glove design is also very comfortable-- it gives you more precision than a mitten

To enhance the release of toxins, end with a few cycles of hot then cold water. First turn the water to as hot as you can take it for several seconds, then to as cold as you can tolerate, then back to hot, and so on. This will stimulate the blood circulation and further invigorate the skin.

After all, having a strong and long-proven identity in the business has its advantages. And when things open up further, NetEnt can expect online casinos to come running for their products.
