Okay I know I love coming up with catchy titles (I should work for a tabloid shouldn’t I?). After reading this blog post on stripes & sequins it became necessary for me to locate a brush. Dry brushing is meant to stimulate your cell growth and release toxins. You are supposed to ‘dry brush’ before the shower. Since it stimulates cellular growth it is also supposed to help with cellulite, not to get rid of it but to improve the appearance. I found a dry brush for 5£ at boots and Im not sure if its working but it does feel really nice. I imagine the benefits of dry brushing work the same as when you stimulate your hair growth by brushing the scalp. I like the idea of this because it is something that is quite cheap and relaxing that improves your skin by exfoliation!
Here is what you need to do in order to get the benefits:
- Pick a ‘dry brush’ or ‘detox brush’ with natural bristles.
- Brush your skin before showering working your way up from the feet in upward strokes going towards the heart like this diagram below.
What do you think? will you try it?
