LIVING IN WISCONSIN IS HARD.
our skin takes the biggest hit in the winter.
dry body brushing helps shed dead skin cells and encourages new cell renewal, which results in smoother and brighter skin! it can also help with any pesky ingrown hairs.
want the best results?
1. before you jump into the shower, dry body brush your entire body- but especially the areas that are extremely dry. (these brushes can be purchased at the Studio!)
HOW TO BODY BRUSH:
your brush will seem stiff when you open the package. but! it's supposed to be that way! *use the brush only on dry skin* use light circular motions. the process from start to finish on your whole body should be about 1-2 minutes. if it's taking longer, you might be doing it too much or for too long.
2. in the shower- you can always use a mild exfoliator if you wish for a little extra exfoliation.
3. when you get out of the shower, put coconut oil all over your body! since you brushed off all of the dry skin, the coconut oil has the ability to completely re-moisturize you.
a few extra reasons why dry brushing should be included in your every day routine:
the lymphatic system is a major part of the body’s immune system. it is made up of organs and lymph nodes, ducts and vessels that transport lymph throughout the body. many of these lymph vessels run just below the skin and proponents of dry brushing claim that brushing the skin regularly helps stimulate the normal lymph flow within the body and help the body detoxify itself naturally.
the added benefit of exfoliating the skin, is clearing oil, dirt and residue from the pores.
increasing the circulation to the skin could possibly reduce the appearance of cellulite. cellulite is toxic material accumulated in your body’s fat cells.
