Are you DRY SKIN BRUSHING? I have been doing this for years to naturally exfoliate my skin, stimulate my lymphatic system, circulatory system, increase blood circulation to the skin, and to stimulate skin cell regenerataion. Always brush TOWARDS the heart, and use a NATURAL BRUSH with PLANT-BASED BRISTLES like Cactus. I cannot recommend this more highly. Even if you only do it once or twice a week. AMAZING for lymphatic and skin health.
