Dry skin brushing is a great, easy and cheap way of getting a fabulous and smooth skin. This is something I do before every shower and it has improved the feeling and softness of my skin as well as the look of it.
How do dry skin brushing?
Get a small skin brush from the supermarket or any shop that stocks body care products, my skin brush is from the Body Shop and is round with a small knob to hold. There are various designs so look around and choose the one you like the most.
Before you are about to have a shower gently brush your skin in circular movements from your feet up to the belly. I pay extra attention around the thigh area to prevent and treat cellulites. Work your way around the torso in clock wise movements, and then out the arms, when you get to the neck your work is finished and you can jump in the shower. Finish a hot shower with really cold water to wake up your blood circulation and yourself even more.
Benefits of dry skin brushing
Dry skin brushing increases the blood circulation in your skin thus cleanses the lymphatic system, strengthens the immune system and stimulates the hormone and oil producing glands.
With the circulating movement on your belly it can help digestion, go clock wise as this is the direction the digestion works in.
It removes cellulites and dead skin, and tightens the skin to prevent premature ageing.
The benefetis are numerous and I also find the time I spend doing the dry skin brushing therapeutic as it is one of very few moments during the day that I spend solely on my own, with my own body.
