Brush Your Way to Better Skin

When it comes to skincare, sometimes the most unexpected rituals are the most effective. The last unsung beauty hero was our good friend the face mask (click here for a refresher), but today it's all about the body brush! You may recall this celebrity beauty piece, in which you were introduced to Kim Cattrall's brushing habits. According to Kim, the technique revealed healthier, refreshed skin.

Benefits of Body Brushing 

Regular dry brushing of the skin is said to detoxify the body, exfoliate the skin, and reduce cellulite.  While these long-term effects do require commitment to the regimen, more imminent effects include seemingly glowy and rejuvenated skin. Think of it as a non-invasive facial, but for your body! The simple task achieves this by not only exfoliating, but also improving circulation. A healthy glow can only be achieved when blood flow is healthy and stimulated! 

How to Reduce Cellulite 

If you're anything like the rest of us, you have a long-standing feud with cellulite. Innovative (and super expensive spa treatments) have been featured on day time talk shows (and Keeping up with the Kardashians for that matter), but in reality, most of us can't afford to go that route. Urban Spa makes a fantastic Cellulite Brush designed to diminish the appearance of cellulite. The brush is designed to be used everyday, before or during your shower, to massage affected areas, which breaks up the fat deposits and increase circulation. Followed by vigorous brushing to exfoliate and smooth the skin, over time the appearance of cellulite is dramatically decreased. 

Get Beach Ready 

This last tip might seem totally wild, but it's worth it! There's nothing worse than a perfectly primped bikini line plagued by bumps or ingrown hairs, right? Right. It's beach season, so in the spirit of days in the sand, this discussion needs to be had. Urban Spa's sisal and bamboo bikini brush works to gently exfoliate dry layers of skin, which prevents in-grown hairs caused by waxing and shaving. It's to be used daily to maintain the perfect bikini line!

Who knew body brushing held so many benefits? Aesthetic benefits aside, brushing is integral way to help with anti-aging and preserve the health of your skin, so there's really no better time to embark on a new skincare regimen! Especially one that can be easily incorporated into your regular shower routine.
