From Spring-Summer 2006
Skin brushing exfoliates the skin, boosts circulation, and leaves you looking radiant. Using a natural-bristle brush on dry skin, start at the soles of your feet and move upward, brushing toward the heart. Not only will your skin glow, but the practice is also said to stimulate the lymph system, which aids in the natural detoxification of the body.
