Body brushing is our top tip for 2017! Body brushes are made of natural cactus bristle which boost and stimulate the blood flow in the body.
Body brushing over the whole body has a number of fantastic benefits;
By stimulating the blood supply, body brushing stimulates the lymphatic drainage helping to remove the build up of toxins and allowing for better circulation.
Enhances skin texture and appearance
Body brushing stimulates blood flow and rids the body of toxins. It also helps to refine the texture (minimising the appearance of cellulite) as well as providing a mild exfoliation on the outer surface.
Improves product absorption
Exfoliating using a body brush removes outer dead skin cells, this allows product to better penetrate the skin for increased absorption.
Increases lymphatic flow
Body brushing increases blood flow which aids lymphatic drainage allowing blood circulation to improve.
