I heard about dry skin skin brushing from Amanda Griffin when she shared her beauty secrets in Patty Laurel’s blog. I was keen on try it too. When I came across a body brush in Body Shop, I decided to purchase one. I got the long handle body brush. Unfortunately, I haven’t able to do the dry skin brushing religiously and manage to do it only during evenings.
But a few days ago, renowned Filipina makeup artist, Xeng Zulueta tweeted a picture of Joyce Ma, HongKong’s legendary icon and successful retailer of Joyce Boutique who swears by doing 100 strokes of dry skin brushing.
Would you believe this glowing lady is already 72? I would love to look like that when I turn 70! I need to dust off my body brush now.
Intending to be more serious with dry skin brushing, I asked Xeng more about dry skin brushing. She has graciously sent me a diagram how to do the proper brush strokes. And I was also informed that dry skin brushing must be done before bathing in the morning.
Benefits of Dry Skin Brushing:
1. It will activate your lymphatic system and detoxify yourself from impurities.
2. It will exfoliate your skin and get rid of excess dead skin, giving you a healthy glow.
3. It will reduce cellulites and tone skin (Yea!)
So brush away, peeps! I know I will too!
