Tired of going to the spa to get expensive treatments? Want an inexpensive, easy way to reduce cellulite and make your skin glow beautifully? Try a new trend called skin brushing. All you need is a good quality body brush with natural bristles that costs around $6-$10.
So what is skin brushing and how does it work?
Start with your brush or loofah at your feet and move upwards towards the thighs in small circular motions. Don’t brush too hard or your skin might become red and irritated. Next, brush your arms downward and brush your torso towards the heart. Avoid your face where your skin is more sensitive. Hips and thighs are great places to brush because cellulite tends to form there. Be sure to brush gentle and avoid bruises, cuts, or irritated areas.
What are the benefits?
Skin brushing helps the largest organ you have: your skin. It accelerates toxin elimination, stimulates blood flow and circulation, reduces cellulite, helps exfoliate and remove dead skin cells, anti-aging through cell regeneration, and helps you get your moist, supple skin back. Skin brushing also actives your lymphatic system (a part of your immune system) by stimulating the lymphatic channels to release toxic materials in the colon and cleanse the entire body. The waste that it brings to the surface gets out of your skin in the form of sweat and dead skin cells and makes your skin look better and helps unclog your pores. The best part of all this is that skin brushing not only makes your skin LOOK better, it has proven medical benefits. It stimulates your nerve endings that help your nervous system, it gives you a healthy body by helping your skin breathe better with unclogged pores, it helps increase your circulation and blood flow, and it rids your skin of toxins that can destroy your health.
Where can I find an inexpensive brush to try skin brushing?
Amazon.com is the best place to find brushes that cost around $6-$10. Simply search on Amazon or Google Shopping for “skin brushing brushes” or “dry brushes” and you’ll be able to compare prices with brands such as Bernard Jensen, Yerba Prima Botanicals, and Elemis. Other places to check out are vitamin stores like The Vitamin Shoppe and beauty supply stores. Make sure you get one with natural bristles!
If you knew you could get beautiful skin from 5-10 minutes a day with an inexpensive brush, you would have tried this a long time ago!
