Product Focus // The Energy Brush

Dry brushing is one of my favourite skin rituals. It’s an ancient practice that has gained a lot of momentum in recent years and is basically exactly what it sounds like, brushing the skin in a particular way with a dry brush and typically before a shower.

I am absolutely in love with the Energy Brush from Living Libations and use it with their Lymph + Tonic. The energy brush is made with bronze bristles that contain real copper and zinc, two essential trace elements. Copper helps with the formation of collagen, increases the absorption of iron and plays a role in energy production. Zinc is also required in small amounts every day and plays a role in: hormone production, energy, growth and repair, zinc also improves immunity and facilitates digestion. The molecular structure of the bristles in the Energy Brush allows the copper and zinc ions to be directly absorbed through the skin, ensuring their immediate absorption by the body.

“Oxygen atoms make up over 80% of the human body, making oxygen the true elixir of life. We thrive on negatively-charged oxygen ions that are inhaled through the air, absorbed through our drinking water, and ingested in the concentrated form of hydrogen peroxide. Oxygen ions connect us with the earth. They are found in the coastline of a beautiful beach, the elegant rush of a waterfall, each droplet of rain and every sparkling snowflake. Oxygen ion levels are increased with air friction, which is created by dry-brushing the skin. Brushing also has massive benefits for the body’s circulatory and nervous systems.”

There are many benefits to dry brushing which include:

  • Lymphatic Support: the lymphatic system is part of the body’s immune system and because it runs just below the skin, dry brushing helps to stimulate normal lymph flow within the body which aids in detoxification
  • Exfoliation: Because the process involves running the firm, natural bristles over the skin, this helps to loosen and remove dead skin cells, naturally exfoliating the skin and cleaning the pores. Your skin will be smoother and brighter. Be sure to moisturize afterwards, coconut oil works great
  • Cellulite: dry brushing may reduce cellulite by increasing the circulation to the skin
  • Even Skin: helps with muscle tone and gives you a more even distribution of fat deposits
Directions for dry brushing
  • Start on dry skin before taking a shower
  • Brush in circular, upward motions
  • Always start at your feet and work upwards towards the heart – this is the the direction in which lymph flows in the body and you want to follow that
  • Start at ankles working up to lower legs, thighs, bum, stomach, back and arms
  • For the back brush from the neck down to the lower back (not upwards here)
  • Shower afterward to wash off dead skin cells
  • Moisturize, coconut oil is recommended
