    Dry body brushing is exactly that:) You can buy a special dry body brush from the Body Shop or Boots. Before you get into the shower/bath you literally brush your body starting from your feet upwards towards your heart, it a bit sore to start off with BUT is really excellent for cellulite and skin tone, takes about 5 mins max, then you have a shower:)if you can, invest in some bio oil or Palmers cocoa butter after shower oil and massage that into your skin afterwards. After a few sessions you will actually enjoy the brushing.

    It gets rid of dead skin cells too and your skin literally start to glow, YOU must moisturise afterwards. If you are really FLUSH with dosh treat yourself to L'Oreal slimming lotion products, can't remember the exact name but they're available in Boots and Superdrug.

    Well worth it - even just getting the brush and cocoa butter oil.

    Hope this helps.

    Goodnight

    Dry body brushing is great! You can buy a body brush from The Body Shop or Boots, you literally brush in your body in short strokes starting from your feet going upwards towards your heart, you do this before you get into the shower. After you shower it is worth moisturising with bio-oil or Palmers Cocoa Butter or any body-firming lotion (L'oreal perfect slim is great) depending on your budget.

    Body brushing is great for cellulite and it gives your skin a real glow because it gets rid of toxins and dead skin cells so moisturiser gets to really soak in.

    It feels a bit strange when you start off with it but as you get used to it it is great:) well worth it.

    Hope this helps

    Our LLC arranged a therapist to come to our group and demostrate the body brushing. Most of us bought a brush there & then, and also ordered a bottle of the skin firming aromatherapy oil that the lady had made just ofr us LL ladies.

    It is a great thing to do and really makes you wake up & tingle in the mornings!! Feels & smells great too!!
