beauty + an ode to the dry brush


If you believe in the statement "Beauty is pain," then you'll really believe in the power of the dry brush. 

If you like brushing away dead skin and cellulite while simultaneously helping drain out your lymphatic system, then you'll like dry brushing.

My favorite blog The Skinny Confidential frequently discusses the amazing benefits of dry brushing, and I completely agree. Whenever I feel a gross, a nice dry brush session works wonders.

What:
Basically, your skin is the largest organ of the body, whether you notice it or not. It needs to be detoxed from time to time, and dry brushing is a great way to do that. I've been dry brushing since last summer, and it's honestly really relaxing when you get into a routine of doing it. 

Why:
Exfoliation, reducing appearance of cellulite, removes toxins, increases energy, increases circulation, smoothes skin 

How:
Start from your ankles and work your way up to your arms and chest, always up towards your heart. Use long strokes upward. I'll try to dry brush a couple of times a week, but it's recommended to do it every day. It won't be as uncomfortable if you do it consistently.

Do it y'all.

Just do it.
