We are all aware of just how important exfoliating the skin on our face is, but many of us often forget that our body needs a good scrub too.

 

These five benefits will have you finally investing in a long handled body brush or a mitt in no time though.

 

It increases circulation

Gently scrub towards your heart to increase blood flow and boost your circulation.

 

Removes toxins

Scrubbing in a certain direction can help direct unwanted toxins to your lymph nodes which will then remove them from your body. This can also help reduce the appearance of cellulite.

 

Gives you brighter skin

Body brushing helps to remove dead skin cells and prevent them building up and clogging your pores. This will instantly give you brighter, healthier looking skin.

 

Helps your body absorb products

Your skin will struggle to absorb any products, like moisturiser, if there is a layer of dead cells clogging pores.

 

Helps prevent dry skin

Body brushing helps to stimulate sebum secretion which keeps your skin soft and shiny.
