body brushing for beautiful bottoms

I do hope that Merionwen will become a name that brings to mind image of quality and indulgent skincare. Products that feed the skin and give a healthy glow. However, products can't do it all alone. We need to help our skin be at it's best.

I'm sure we all know how disheartening the sight of dimply orange peel skin and pale cellulite thighs come the arrival of the sunshine can be. Our poor skin can be starved of sunlight during the winter months and longs to drink in the vitamin D enhancing rays. Of course, we all wish to take good care of our skin and protect it from harmful rays, but we must not forget that we need the sunlight for the synthesis of Vitamin D. A sensible approach and moderation is key.

However, I digress. Cellulite! The bane of the lady's bottom!

Well, I have discovered (rather late in life) that one of the most effective ways of combating excess cellulite and dull grey skin is to body brush.

When you are waiting for the bath to fill or the shower to reach it's optimum temperature grab that body brush and go to work. It stimulates tired circulation and helps to flush toxins out of the skin. It assists in the break down of fatty pockets that give the appearance of cellulite. You can use a variety of things to "brush" but a purpose bought body brush is ideal. However, you can also use a loofah or even a sisal mitten.

Start at your toes and sweep upwards, be firm but gentle. Brushing your knees in small circles. Work upward to your thighs and buttocks in smooth circling motions. It's really rather a good feeling, energising! move upward towards your heart, taking special care to use gentle sweeping strokes over your stomach and breasts. After all, you don't want bruises!

Then sweep up your arms from your finger tips. Using small circling strokes upon you elbows. Don't forget your back! A long handled brush is ideal for this but you can always ask a handy partner to assist if you don't have a brush to hand. Always working towards the heart and starting at the bottom.

Then when you skin is singing with pleasure hop on into the shower or bath and slough off those dead cells.

You will see the benefit over just a small amount of time if you can take just a couple of minutes to make this part of your daily routine.

Don't forget though. There is more to skincare. One of the most important parts of healthy skin is a healthy diet and to keep well hydrated!
