All natural Tampico Skin Brush, exfoliates, enhances toxin removal and may help remove cellulite and stretch marks

Yerba Prima’s Tampico Skin Brush, made from all-natural agave vegetable fiber, is a powerful tool to revitalize the skin as well as promote healthy blood circulation and lymphatic cleansing.

As part of a daily home regimen of dry brushing, the skin brush removes dry, dead skin cells to expose fresh new skin cells, while deep cleaning and bringing nutrients to the surface for more beautiful, youthful skin. Exfoliation with the brush stimulates the growth of young healthy skin cells, and may help reduce cellulite and other skin blemishes.

The brush’s long handle, along with its detachable brush head, make it easier to reach every part of the body for more effective results. Dry skin brushing, often used by spas and beauty salons, is one of the best ways to cleanse the skin without removing the protective layer of acid and oils.

“Dry skin brushing is one of the most effective exfoliating treatments for skin with cellulite and stretch marks,” says Howard Murad, M.D. in his book The Cellulite Solution: A Doctor’s Program for Losing Lumps, Bumps, Dimples, and Stretch Marks. “Not only does regular use of this technique remove old dead and dying cells around your body, it also increases the blood flow to the affected areas and stimulates the lymphatic system’s ability to remove built-up toxins.”

As the largest eliminative organ, the skin plays a vital role in ridding the body of toxins and impurities that are potential sources of illness. Use of the skin brush stimulates both blood vessels and the lymphatic system, which unlike the circulatory system has no central pump. The body’s lymph nodes help to remove toxins and waste, but need help as we age and circulation slows.

Dry skin brushing is one of the most powerful ways to cleanse the lymphatic system. Waste material is carried away from the cells by the blood and the lymph. Skin brushing stimulates the release of this material from the cells near the surface of the body. Eventually, most of the toxins along with their carrier cells find their way to the colon for elimination.

Such skin brushing also helps to remove toxins from the body by enhancing blood circulation and elimination through the liver and kidneys, as well as through sweat by unclogging the pores.

Dry skin brushing has been used in cultures worldwide for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. Skin brushing with birch twigs, rough towels and even corn cobs has traditionally been practiced in the baths of Japan and Turkey, the saunas of Finland and Russia, and the sweat lodges of the Native Americans. Yerba Prima’s Tampico Skin Brush has simplified and updated the practice.
