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.
