Daily body brushing: 1 min to skin heaven
I have heard about dry brushing or body brushing for ages, and never did it. I didn’t think I had the know-how, or it would take forever, or whatever – I just didn’t do it. But now I do it everyday without fail, and I can report that my skin now feels like silk. Partner noticed right away – “oooh, very soft!”, I got told about a week into my new regime. Result!
It’s something that’s so easy to do, seems to have a lot of excellent additional health benefits beyond soft and beautiful skin – but those in reality were enough for me to begin.
5 steps to Dry Brushing: All that you need to begin tomorrow
- Buy a brush today on your lunch break – I got mine at the Body Shop – but you can get them at any drugstore for a song. I like the ones with the natural bristles, and not the loofah ones. Your choice though – just get anything with soft bristles, and begin this daily 1 min practice.
- You will do it before your AM shower – I run the water, and let it get warm while I brush for my minute
- Start by stroking upwards from your feet, and work in long strokes up your legs towards your heart
- Stroke your arms, and start at your hands (I hold my arms up in the air, one at a time), and then stroke down each arm towards my heart
- At the end, do some extra circles, on bits that get cellulite – bums, thighs etc. as well as lightly circle around your belly button on your tummy to finish off
- Seriously, that’s it – it’s so easy, just do it, and don’t worry about doing it correctly – just be gentle, work towards your heart at all times, and throw in some circles at the end for extra benefit.
Why body brushing is great for you
- Loosens dead skins cells, uncovering new radiant skin underneath – seriously, you will knock years off your skin and feel great seeing your new glow
- Increased skin moisture
- Boosted immune system
- Moves your lymph and helps to remove toxins in body
- Lessens the appearance of cellulite
- Makes skin super soft like silk
I can’t recommend this quick beauty and health secret enough. I love stuff that’s easy and has enormous payouts. You will too – promise.
