MY Beauty Secret
- How to get smooth and radiant skin without spending a fortune on lotions -
For years I spend a fortune on body lotions which promised to give me the smoothest skin of my life. The outcome was mediocre. Sure my skin was softer and more hydrated right after the application, but in the long run, I just wasn't happy with my skin, until I started Dry Brushing it.
Since then, my skin is in the best condition ever. So, for all of you who want smoother and healthier looking skin, I highly recommend Dry Brushing.
What is Dry Brushing
All you have to do is take a firm body brush with natural bristles and brush your whole body with it, excluding the face.
Dry Brush your body before you take a shower not afterwards. Start brushing at your ankles in gentle circular, upward motions. Always brush towards your heart because the lymphatic fluid flows through the body towards the heart, so it is important to brush in the same direction. The exception to the rule is your back. Here you begin brushing the neck and move downwards to your lower back.
I always start with one leg, then switch to the other side. Afterwards, I brush the front part of my upper body, then my rear side and last but not least I finish with my arms.
The whole procedure sounds very time-consuming, but I promise you once you develop a routine it last no longer than ten minutes.
Benefits of Dry Brushing
1. It Exfoliates Your Skin
By brushing your skin you remove all the dead skin cells. Even after the first brushing session, you will feel an immediate difference in your skin condition. Overtime, after regularly Dry Brushing your skin, you'll get the smoothest skin you'll ever had.
2. It Unclogs The Pores and Congests The Skin
Dry skin cells clog your pores leaving your skin dull, uneven and with impurities. By removing those dry cells your skin becomes more radiant and pure.
3. It Refines Your Figure
Dry Brushing helps to refine your silhouette because it distributes your body's fat deposits more evenly throughout your body.
4. It Helps To Reduce The Appearance Of Cellulite
Cellulite is a result of toxic materials that have accumulated in the body’s fat cells and are unable to be eliminated from the body. Dry brushing increases the circulation thereby it helps to break down those trapped toxins and eliminates them through the body's usual elimination channels. Therefore, the appearance of cellulite will be visibly reduced.
5. It Stimulates Your Lymphatic System
Dry Brushing also stimulates your lymphatic system. Your lymphatic system helps you to remove toxins from your body. Without those toxins, your body is able to run more efficiently. As a result, you feel fitter and more awake.
