Am I the very last person on God's green earth to hear about dry brushing? I sure hope not. I read about it someplace and I started it about three weeks ago. It totally works. Let me tell you all about it… Before you get in the shower (I actually do it while the water's getting hot) you take a dry brush (it's literally a dry brush and you can get them any place-- here and here are a few) and you start brushing your skin. Start at your feet and make all of your brushstrokes go in the direction of your heart and you start at the tops your feet and then move to your legs, onto your arms, on your abs (skip the chest part – – ouch!), on your bum and as much of your back as you can reach. It is supposed to slough off the dead skin cells, remove toxins, improve skin tone and quality and just overall wake everything up. This last thing it does for sure. I step into the shower invigorated and ready to go. Too bad all I'm doing is standing around putting soap on myself. But still. The weird thing is that it's supposed to help your skin tone improve over time but already I can feel a change in my skin texture (a little). And also, it feels like my body lotion just sinks in (soaks in?) easier. I don't know if that makes sense but I will literally do or try anything someone suggests regarding beauty. I'm pretty sure the article I read about dry brushing talked about preventing cellulite so admittedly that was my motivation but you should try it. It feels pretty amazing. And summer is a'coming- I need all the help I can get to get ready! Thanks for stopping by sweet friends! Xoxo -Jen and Michelle
PS- here is a link to Shape magazines write up on dry brushing.
PSS- That Mason Pearson brush in the picture is the 💣. It's crazy how (1) expensive yet (2) worth it these brushes are. I love mine. It's gentle and the bristles sort of massage your scalp when you are brushing it. Love love love!
