Anyone else dry body brush at home besides me?


What is body brushing?
Body brushing is using a natural bristle brush, not one that uses synthetic materials and at least one that has a long handle to get all areas of the back side too.  It increases circulation throughout the skin and most importantly our lymph nodes.


Increased circulation: which helps to reduce the appearance of cellulite
encourages cell renewal
Lymphatic drainage: lymph nodes collect our toxins in our body and the quicker we can rid our body of it the better our immune system will be and the better we feel.
Helps muscle tone
Unclogs pores

How to:

  • Best time to do it: morning! I don’t want dry skin all over my bathroom so I actually take the brush into the shower, dry brush inside the shower before turning on the water.
  • Brush in gentle circular motions going upward and toward the center of your body.
  • Begin at your feet and ankles
  • Move up the legs and thighs (don’t forget the back of the thighs) to the stomach brush the stomach
  • Brush from the hands up the arm towards the center of your body
  • The back is the only section of your body that you will brush down from the neck towards your bum

Then shower!!! Alternating cold and hot water to increase the circulation and increased circulation is just better!
Start on a weekend when you have a little more time so that you can get used to but incorporate it into your daily routine!  You will love it.

Wish lists and want lists....a girl can dream!

Well hello there friend!  It has been a long long time....out of sight but not out of mind.  With this wonderful change in the weather, makes me dream of updating my closet.  I haven't updated my closet in years...I feel guilty buying new things when I really don't need it.  So I have found me some guilt free eco-friendly and animal cruelty free items that make me rather happy to support such a wonderful industry....and support my need to shop.

I saw these pictures on pinterest and fell in love with the style.  I set out to find the items in an eco-friendly version.

Enjoy....I would love nothing more than to find these in my mailbox or under the Christmas tree this year, I have been very very good!  I hope you will find non-ecofriendly items on pinterest and attempt to buy some ecofriendly versions instead.  I would love to hear from you regarding some of your favorite ecofriendly clothing.
