THE ART OF DRY BRUSHING & THE BENEFITS
I have been hearing about the dry brushing phenomenon for quite some time. I am not one to have a lot of steps to my beauty routine, but I’ve decided to mix up my routine and give it a try. My focus is to strive for softer smoother skin, and making sure it stays that was for the colder months ahead.
The art of dry brushing comes with practice. Also through reading the directions below. The benefits are like no other- reduces cellulite & builds elasticity, improves circulation and acts as a lymphatic massage. It’s also the best exfoliator, and helps absorb any moisturizer 10x better. Dry brushing literally adds a few extra minutes to your routine, so it’s a no brainer to just do it.

- Buy a nice long dry brush [here]
