Have you ever tried dry brushing? No, not brushing your hair. I'm talking about brushing your skin. It's a simple self-care technique used throughout history to detoxify, exfoliate and soften your skin while improving circulation and sebum (natural oils produced by your body) production. Dry brushing has also been said to break down fat cells that cause cellulite leaving your with smooth firm skin.
All you need to start is a dry brush of your choice. They come in a variety of styles including long handle, short handle, and no handle gloves options. Most brushes range from $5 - $20 and can be found in the beauty section of your local store.
Dry brushing in the morning stimulates blood flow, wakes your body up and jumpstarts your day. Begin at the soles of your feet and move up your body making long circular strokes brushing towards your heart. You should always use gentle strokes, be delicate with sensitive areas, and focus on areas where you have cellulite. Follow up this body buffing technique with a shower to remove dead skin and before drying off apply a soothing oil to seal moisture into your skin. Repeat the process 3 - 5 times per week for 3 - 5 minutes each session and watch your body transform into smooth sexy glowing skin.
Bonus Tip - Start dry brushing now to reduce dry itchy skin in the winter months. If your brush feels too rough wash it with warm water and mild soap and let it dry before using. Also, wash your brush in the shower to remove dead skin buildup and NEVER share your brush with anyone, it's just for you.
