Healthy Obsession: This Skin Brush Can Help Shrink CelluliteNovember 10th, 2015
Suffering from cellulite? You’re not alone—some 85 to 98 percent of women over the age of 20 know how it goes, and how difficult it is to eliminate.
While there’s no definitive “cure” for cellulite, there’s certainly no question that prayer alone won’t get rid of it. Add a little skin brushing to the equation, however, and now we’re talking.
We like to think of Yerba Prima’s Tampico Skin Brush as a magic wand, but it’s more science than magic. Used for centuries the world over (yes, long before Bridget Jones), skin brushing gently removes the top layer of dead skin and helps cleanse the skin without removing the protective mantle of acids and oils. As a result, it exfoliates the skin and stimulates the release of waste material built up in the cells near the skin’s surface, helping to cleanse the lymphatic system and eventually rid your body of toxins via the colon.
What you’re left with is smoother, softer, supple skin sans dimples. Besides, even if those pesky ripples don’t disappear completely, you’ll feel better as a result of improved circulation.
We’re devotees of Yerba Prima’s brush because it’s made with all-natural vegetable fibers, meaning none of the irritation commonly associated with synthetic bristles. Plus, it boasts a super-long handle for hard-to-reach areas like the backs of legs.
We recommend brushing while your skin is dry, preferably right before you bathe or shower.
