This edition of twirl is all about my love love love for my dry brush. Every morning before I shower (but after my jumping jacks and stretching) I run a dry brush over most of my body. It sloughs off the dead skin, improves circulation, and some say even helps the immune system. Scandinavians have been dry brushing for hundreds of years, and they claim some of the other positive affects include:
- Removal of cellulite
- Cleansing of the lymphatic system
- Skin tightening
- Tones muscle
- Aids digestion
I’ve only been dry brushing for a couple of weeks, so I can’t really attest to any of the benefits aside from exfoliation. But it feels great and adds a nice ritual to my morning.
