This weather cracks me up!

In the winter, my skin suffers. I can use all the lotion in the world, and I still feel dry. The key to moisturized skin is exfoliating!! We all know this, so why don't we do it more? The best type of exfoliation in my opinion, is dry brushing. Use the brush dry on dry right before you shower. So the brush is dry, and your skin in dry. Start at your feet and work your way up your body. Always brush up towards the heart. Dry brushing will wake your skin up, get the blood flowing, and helps reduce cellulite! Make sure you get a brush with natural bristles, other brushes can be too sharp and scratch the skin. After you are done showering, pat yourself dry, and apply a body oil right away. When your skin is slightly damp the oil will absorb deeper into the skin. If your skin is extra dry, apply a lotion on top of the oil. Your skin should feel amazing after your mini body treatment. Take an extra 10 minutes out of your daily routine to dry brush and apply oil after your shower. Your body will thank you later.
