Have you ever tried dry brushing?

Our skin is the largest organ in the human body. Dry brushing your
skin helps to unclog the pores and any toxins that may become
trapped as it’s working to detox your body

Dry brushing:
exfoliates away dead skin 
stimulates the lymph system
may help reduce cellulite
unclogs pores
helps to reduce ingrown hairs
leaves skin feeling smoother and softer

According to the Cleveland Clinic:
The mechanical action of dry brushing is wonderful for exfoliating dry winter skin. It also helps detoxify by increasing blood circulation and promoting lymph flow/drainage. Dry brushing unclogs pores in the exfoliation process. It also stimulates your nervous system, which can make you feel invigorated afterward.

Dry brushing before you get in the shower is a great way to lightly exfoliate the skin and leave it looking glowing and bright!  Lock in your glow and nourish your skin with a light natural moisturizer or body oil after showering.

How to dry brush:

Start on dry skin

Work in gentle circular, upward motions, then longer stroke upward towards lymph drain points ( videos on this can be easily found on youtube)

Always begin at ankles and wrists and brush inwards towards your heart.

Avoid inflammed, injured or sensitive skin.

Shower to wash away the dead skin cells and impurities

Alternating hot and cold in the shower will also to get lymph flow circulating and leave you energized.
