SKINCARE: All About Body Brushing

Body brushing? Like brushing your body? With a brush? Yep, that's exactly what I mean.

I know you're probably thinking "do you not know how much I have to do before I walk out the door in the morning??" but it's so amazing for your skin, your mind and your health.

Let me tell you why you should build this two minute habit into your daily routine. According to mindbodygreen.com it helps with this long list...

"The benefits of dry skin brushing include:

  • Increasing the circulation to the skin could possibly reduce the appearance of cellulite. Cellulite is toxic material accumulated in your body’s fat cells. So, rather than take drastic measures like liposuction, how about utilising the dry skin brushing techniques to help break down unwanted toxins?

  • Dry body brushing helps shed dead skin cells (and encourages new cell renewal), which results in smoother and brighter skin. It can also help with any pesky ingrown hairs.

  • It assists in improving vascular blood circulation and lymphatic drainage. By releasing toxins, it encourages the body’s discharge of metabolic wastes so the body is able to run more effectively.

  • Dry skin brushing rejuvenates the nervous system by stimulating nerve endings in the skin (and it feels pretty great, too!).
