Three Secrets to Incredible Skin

//1// Dry Brushing

Dry brushing is an exfoliating technique that can make your skin silky and smooth. It is said to increase blood circulation making you feel more energized. Other benefits of dry brushing includes the reduction of cellulite, helps fight ingrown hairs, promotes tighter skin, and opens clogged pores.

The process is fairly simple. Stand in the shower undressed with the water off. Use a natural bristle brush with a long handle (so you can reach everything!). Start at your feet and gently whisk the brush up your entire body in long, fluid motions. Skip spots with a rash, cut, or broken skin. Use light pressure and only do a few strokes per area. Shower as usual.

Within a week you will start to notice smoother and toner skin!

//2// Self Tanner

No product, cream, or gel will get read of cellulite and stretch marks. However, you can use self tanner to reduce the look of both. 

A lotion formula works best for over the lighter scars of stretch marks. Spray tanner is best for cellulite. Start with freshly exfoliated, dry skin. Apply tanner with your hands flat and your fingers together. Using your finger tips can cause streaks!

//3// Avoid Irritation

You should not feel a burning sensation during or after shaving. This is an indicator that your razor blades are dull. It doesn't matter how many blades your razor has; it matters how sharp they are. Dull blades drag on skin causing irritation. Change the blade/razor head every 7-10 shaves. 

Use shaving cream instead of body wash. Body wash can leave residue in the blades which causes nicks when you shave. 

For you underarms, make sure they are fully dry before applying deodorant. Shaving causes micro-cuts in the skin that can become irritated by the aluminum chloride in deodorant. Bumps and itching are also a common side effect. Try a moisturizing formula deodorant.

    1. Thanks for the pin! I have not found dry brushing to be painful. Using a natural bristle brush really helps, synthetic bristles are a lot harder/tough.

  7. I brought a dry brush on accident a few years ago (I thought it was for the shower) and I keep hearing how good dry brushing is, but I never remember to do it!

  8. I've honestly never heard of dry brushing before, but now I clearly need to try it! I have very sun-tanned skin because of open water swimming, but I really need to take care of it better.
