Self-care for 400, please... What is
We're all looking for
healthier, smooth, shining skin, especially now that warm weather is
on its way.
Winter clothes can be stifling
to our skin, trapping sweat, bacteria and dead cells on the surface.
It's hard to take the time to care properly for our skin in the
winter when it's chilly and no one's seeing much of it (including
yourself)... Mostly I just hate being cold so I cover myself up as
quick as I can!
Dry brushing is one of my
favorite ways to exfoliate my skin – it's quick to do right before
a shower, I notice a difference right away, and it feels like
scratching every little itch you could ever imagine – so
satisfying! In a nutshell, it increases sensation and circulation, is
detoxing and boosts your immune system, reduces cellulite and stress,
and revives your skin to be smooth and supple.
So what is dry brushing? It's a
technique (also called skin brushing or body brushing) for
exfoliating the skin and increasing circulation using a dry, natural
bristle brush to gently brush the skin.
What will dry brushing do for me?
smoother skin by removing dead skin cells on the surface
stimulates and increases
new skin cell production, giving you a healthy glow
increases blood flow and
circulation, enhancing detoxification through your skin and boosting
your overall immune system
calms and invigorates like
a mini massage with both gentle pressure and brushing sensations
reduces cellulite through
an increase in blood circulation and removal of stored toxins in
your legs and hips
relieves stress through
the stimulation of nerve endings in your skin, which in turn helps
to rejuvenate your entire nervous system
Dry brushing is an invigorating
way to start the day – you won't believe how smooth, soft and
healthy your skin will feel and look.
