In the summertime, it is not uncommon for the skin to become dry and a bit greyish, due to too much sun and salty swims. For a beautiful tan that will last well into fall, try brushing your skin with a dry brush or a loofah. Here are 3 reasons why brushing your skin is a good idea.
Detox. Your skin is the largest organ in your body, and it helps the liver and kidneys to rid the body of toxins. Everyday, large amounts of waste products and toxins leave the body through the skin. Brushing the skin cleans out and opens the pores, thereby facilitating the detoxification.
Glow. Brushing, not unlike peeling, helps your skin to get rid of that outer layer of dead skin cells that can give you a dull complexion. Brushing will bare a new fresh layer of skin, giving you a healthier look and glow. It will not take away your tan, it will just make it more beautiful.
Circulation. Brushing gets your circulation going, which helps the body get rid of waste. It can also contribute to a more even skin tone with less cellulites.
