Give your body an extra boost it needs by body brushing daily!
After eating and drinking too much over the festive season our bodies can feel tired and sluggish and could do with an extra helping hand!
Body brushing for just 5 minutes a day can help stimulate circulation, break down fatty deposits and will help aid lymphatic drainage and detoxification.
The gentle massaging motion of the bristles also has a beneficial effect on areas of cellulite and is an effective way to eliminate toxins from the body.
My top 5 reasons to body brush daily:
· Removes dry, dead skin cells
· Skin appears smoother and more nourished
· Helps combat cellulite and fatty deposits
· Increases energy and stimulates the body
· Feels Great!
To get the most of body brushing it’s important to make sure you are doing it correctly. Use firm, sweeping strokes and always body brush in an upward motion towards the heart as this will encourage the return of blood and encourage lymphatic flow.
The whole process should take 3-5 minutes and for best results I would recommend doing it first thing in the morning as the increased blood flow will help wake you up and energise you for the day.
Body brushing is a cheap and effective way to make you feel great and keep your skin looking radiant.
Once you make it a habit, you will wonder what took you so long to start in the first place!
