Want Irresistibly Soft Skin?
Battling Dry Skin with Body Brushing
The chilly wintry winds have a way of making your skin very dry. No matter how much you moisturize, dry skin stands in between the moisturizer and hydrated skin. The associated symptoms manifest at the most inopportune moments. You are at an important meeting, and you have this insane urge to scratch your leg. However, you are well aware that giving into that urge will not offer much relief. Ugghh!
We, at Modern Skin Labs, consider giving you critical information to maintain beautiful skin our mission. We love inventing new techniques. We also love those trusty older ones that have been kept hidden for way too long.
We looked high, and we looked low. We researched ancient remedies and brought it back with a twist. We have found something that will not only keep your skin feeling soft, smooth and supple, but offers additional health benefits too. You may have heard of it. It’s Dry Skin Body Brushing.
It dates back to ancient Greek times. The Romans did it too. Even the Cherokee Indians body brushed with dried corn husks. We would like to replace the corn husks with a body brush that features natural boar bristles, but gives you results that are still as stunning.
How does body brushing make my skin so beautiful?
Body brushing sloughs off dead skin cells that build up and clog pores. Once you are rid of the dead skin cells, your skin can breathe and detox, revealing a glow that you thought could only come after a visit to a spa.
It reduces cellulite too.
The health benefits of body brushing can be linked to the movement of two kinds of deposits that accumulate under your skin – lymph fluids that are essentially toxic waste and cellulite that are just fat deposits. While getting rid of lymph fluids promotes overall good health by reducing toxic waste in the body, it also ensures delivery of fresh nutrients and oxygen to your skin that in turn controls cellulite build-up.
Here are some benefits that have made Dry Skin Body Brushing the beauty secret to watch out for:
- Firms your skin
- Gives you a glow
- Reduces cellulite
- Detoxifies your skin
- Increases circulation
- Encourages lymphatic drainage
When and how should I body brush?
Body brush right before you shower, with upward strokes. Make sure you are completely nude, and that your brush is clean. Just 5 minutes a day will get you amazing results. Some doctors recommend spending up to 15 minutes to brush your body for better results. Be careful not to overdo it though!
What is the best brush for me?
We thought you’d never ask…
As mentioned above, a brush with natural boar bristles is great for even the most sensitive skin. You also want to make sure that the handle is long enough for easy maneuverability when you are trying to reach that difficult spot on your back.
And, because our mission is to give you the best tools for skin that is visibly soft and supple, we present to you the Modern Skin Labs Body Brush. It’s long enough for hard-to-reach areas and easy to use.
