My skin has always been on the dry side. Add in the cold winter weather with constant dry air and my skin starts to feel like something between a crispy leaf and a saltine cracker.
Have you ever heard of dry brushing? In addition to reducing cellulite, boosting circulation, lymphatic drainage (ridding the body of toxins), tighter skin, cell renewal and blood flow... it helps with dry skin. I got a body brush to give it a try. The idea is you briskly brush your skin, with strokes away from the center of your body using a stiff bristled brush. Yeeowch. Winter makes my skin really itchy so it kinda felt good but it also kinda hurt. Takes some getting used to.
I've ended up using it in the shower instead and it's gentler yet still effective I think. Has anyone else tried wet or dry brushing?
