When was the last time you thoroughly scrubbed your body? No, seriously, I mean when was the last time the brush bristles or exfoliating glove reached your back? When did your scrub between the toes? You see, all those places matter and matter profoundly not just for the beautiful, glowing you, but for the healthy you!
Why do you need a body scrub?
You probably know by now that the skin is the largest organ in the human body, but did you know it is the largest detoxifying surface in your body stretching over 22 square feet or 2 square meters and weighing around 8 pounds or 3.6 kilograms? What does that mean? You need to take care of it by helping it stay smooth and fresh, without any dead skin build-up so it can optimally assist you in toxin elimination process.
When you put on chemical skin care, including comedogenic (skin clogging) mineral oil based products or even the healthy ones like wheat germ, coconut oil or even cocoa butter which also have high clogging ratings, when you consume processed or unhealthy foods, inhale environmental pollutants, don’t drink enough water and fiber rich vegetables and legumes, when you regularly light-up those romantic candles and spray your house with air fresheners you often unintentionally contribute to an inner backlog. When there is too high of an accumulation of toxins the skin will be the very first organ to try to immediately eliminate the invaders threatening our survival.
Brushes, loofas, gloves, sugar or coffee scrubs
They all serve one purpose: to remove dead skin build-up and allow your skin to breathe and expel toxins. After-all your skin is the largest elimination organ in your body; its function is to not only protect your internal organs but to get rid of anything it doesn’t serve you. You might be upset when you get pimples and rashes, but it is your skin’s way of telling you that something is OUT of BALANCE and you need to take action or it will get worse, congesting the liver, lymph, and all the internal organs. It is not about using a concealer or covering up it is about healing!
Scrubbing the entire body, including that hard to reach back, will help the skin eliminate some of the toxins easier and faster by stimulating the lymphatic system responsible for waste removal.
When your lymphatic system is not working properly, waste and toxins can build up and make you sick. Lymphatic congestion is a major factor leading to inflammation and disease.

Scrubbing and gentle daily dry brushing also increase circulation to your skin encouraging the elimination of metabolic waste, substances left over from metabolic processes like cellular respiration and include nitrogen compounds, water, CO2, phosphates, sulfates, etc.

Skin acts as a waterproof, insulating shield, guarding the body against extremes of temperature, damaging sunlight, and harmful chemicals. It also exudes antibacterial substances that prevent infection and manufactures vitamin D for converting calcium into healthy bones. Skin additionally is a huge sensor packed with nerves for keeping the brain in touch with the outside world. At the same time, skin allows us free movement, proving itself an amazingly versatile organ.
