How Do You Dry Brush?
Well first you have to get naked – sorry never-nudes – and you have to get a brush.What Does the Science Say?
The research on dry brushing is… mostly non-existent. There’s lots of anecdotal reports from both doctors and practitioners of it being helpful but no real hard science. The good news is that there really aren’t any bad reports about it either. (But what could go wrong with this? You accidentally sit on the stick end? Dry brush your eyeball? It’s pretty innocuous as health treatments go.)
So I’ve been dry brushing for three whole days now and you know what? It feels really really good. Maybe I am a pony. I haven’t seen any difference in skin tightening or cellulite – they say it takes a minimum of 30 days to start seeing results and up to 6 months to really notice a difference – but I think I’ll keep it up just for the feel-good factor alone! It’s kind of like a little mini-massage (no stranger butt-touching required! – reminder: Get in on the Under Armour drawing while you can!) and it’s really invigorating. I like it. And other than the few minutes a day it takes, I don’t see any harm in trying it. And hey, if it really does tighten up my loose tummy skin I promise to show you pics! In… 6 months!
Do any of you dry brush? How do you feel about health treatments that are a little bit “out there”? Do you do anything kinda kooky?
*Okay, so I may be exaggerating a wee bit. (Me? Exaggerate? Never!) But seriously don’t cook with plastic in your microwave! Not the dishes, not the plastic wrap, not take-out containers and especially not melamine! Stop it! This PSA brought to you by the council of I Love You Too Much.
