Brush your way to great skin with The Organic Pharmacy!

Looking for an easy and natural way to exfoliate dry winter skin without robbing it of moisture the way a hot shower can? Give dry brushing a try, not only does it eliminate flaky skin and unclog pores, it also helps detoxify by increasing blood circulation and promoting lymphphatic flow/drainage and stimulate the nervous system, which can make you feel invigorated afterward!

It's important to pick a brush with firm bristles but if you have sensitive skin (as I do) go with something a little softer - I like:

The Organic Pharmacy Ultimate Natural Skin Brush - $23 - with natural bristles that gently exfoliate to shed dead skin and boost circulation keeping the lymphatic system in great condition. As an added bonus, it has a long handle making it easy to reach your back!

Available at Murale stores across Canada and online at beauty.shoppersdrugmart.ca.

It's easy to use and I like to do it before I shower so I can wash away any loosened dead skin cells - just start from the ankles and work your way up in long upward strokes and circular motions - feel free to adjust the pressure on any sensitive areas - if it hurts you are doing it too hard and can even cause bleeding so ease up. And of course don't brush over skin that is already broken or damaged: cuts, scrapes, sores, burned skin - including sunburns or areas of infection, redness or inflammation.

Some people swear by these brushes for their face too but I'll give that a pass - and if you find that even the softest brush is too much for your body's sensitive skin you can get the same kind of effect in a much more gentle way with a dry washcloth!
