Have you dry brushed? It's been a practice of mine for many years. I love the benefits and how I feel afterwards.
As with anything, consistency is key.
Dry brushing is more known as an Ayurvedic practice. Regardless I believe it is a beautiful, simple health and beauty regime. Benefits of dry brushing include stimulation of lymphatic and circulatory systems, release of toxins, exfoliation of superficial skin cells, rejuvenate and stimulate the body, and relax and soothe skin.
What you need:
A natural fiber dry brush with or without handle. You can find them at many beauty supply stores or beauty departments and are fairly inexpensive at under $10.

What I recommend:
Incorporate 1-3 times a week before shower or bath. Morning or night. Consistency is key!
Start at your feet and work your way up towards the heart. Always flow your dry brush toward the heart for detoxification.
I like to start at my right foot and work all the way up my leg in three's on each section of my leg, then from the waist up to armpit, work across toward heart, then hold an arm up and start at hand working down to arm pit again in three's, and repeat on other side. If your brush has a handle, do your back side or have a loved one do this for you. Again working in three strokes upward toward the head. Always use a very gentle mild pressure, not rubbing.

Next, shower or bath. Afterwards, apply your favorite nourishing body oils. If you have a sluggish lymphatic or circulatory system, I love and recommend CelLite Magic massage oils. Genesis Body Lotion or my DIY Glow Skin Serum which contains the finest oils of CBD, rose, helichrysum, carrot seed, lavender, Frankincense, Valor, Copaiba and more are perfect nourishing products.
