How’s your skin doing this winter? Many people take care of the skin on their face, regularly exfoliating, cleansing, and moisturizing. But when's the last time you tended to the skin on the rest of your body? My favorite body skin treatment is dry brushing. Celebrities such as Cindy Crawford, Miranda Kerr and Molly Sims are big fans of this treatment. The benefits of dry skin brushing go beyond skin deep, offering a natural treatment to your health. Dry skin brushing offers multiple benefits including:
When you dry brush your skin, it increases circulation to your skin, which encourages the elimination of metabolic waste.
Dead skin cells really build up during the winter months. Dry skin brushing removes dead dry skin, improving appearance, and allowing your skin to breathe.
The act of dry brushing has been described as meditative and may reduce muscle tension, calm your mind, and relieve stress.
Along with glowing and tighter skin, regular dry skin brushers report feeling invigorated after a quick session.
How to Dry Brush
Just take a body brush with firm soft needles ( we have them at SkinTrust) and brush every part of your body upwards towards your heart — do not use this on your face or neck.
Next, jump into the shower. Once out of the shower, apply a rich oil all over. The oil I love most is Jojoba oil. This oil adds nutrients to your skin, absorbs with no tacky residue, puts back restorative esters into your skin, does not promote free radicals (many oils can because of their chemical makeup) and contains high levels of nature Vitamin E.
I love Jojoba oil and SkinTrust sells a high quality organic one.
