During the winter months, it’s crucial to stress the importance of skin care. Your skin needs extra attention when the temperatures drop, which is why, (if you haven’t already been practicing this ritual) you should consider dry body brushing.

Dry brushing your kin is one of the healthiest self-help methods you can perform. Dry body brushing essentially stimulates your skin to speed up natural healing pathways within your body, by encouraging the nerve beds within your skin’s structure.

Dry skin brushing helps to shed dead skin cells, which improves skin texture and cell renewal and it increases circulation to your skin, which encourages your body’s discharge of metabolic wastes. When your body rids itself of toxins, it helps not only your skin, but it allows your body to run more efficiently in all areas.

Dry skin brushing helps to tighten your skin, helps with your muscle tone and allows you to evenly distribute your fat deposits, it rejuvenates your nervous system by stimulating nerve endings in the skin and it helps your skin to absorb nutrients by eliminating clogged pores.

So how do you go about dry skin brushing? First, purchase a natural (not synthetic) bristle brush with a long handle, so that you’re able to reach all areas of your body. Simply brush your body all over in long sweeping stroked starting from the bottom of your feet upward, overlapping areas as you go.

Skin brushing should be performed once a day, preferably prior to your bath or shower.

If Google Was A Guy, He’d Probably Go Insane (Video)

People, collectively speaking, can be pretty dumb sometimes. Occasionally we come up with some pretty good ideas like “the wheel” or “cheese in a can,” but these sadly revolutionary advances aren’t enough to cancel out the overwhelming stupidity that permeates society. Anyone who has ever read the comments on YouTube knows what I’m talking about […]
