Has anybody heard of/done body brushing? It supposedly helps to maintain healthy skin (all over the body), helps to keep the skin firm and helps to detox the body or skin. I've also read that it can prevent or treat cellulite. Here are some articles I found online: handbag.com: Body brushing - the lazy girl's detox Skin Brushing Aromatherapy (scroll down) I was on a cruise in December, and I learned about the benefits of body brushing while doing a spa treatment on board. I was told that Elemis Spa (from London) operates all of the spas on all cruise lines, so of course they were promoting some Elemis products along with the idea of maintaining healthy skin (all over the body) by body brushing. I ended up buying an Elemis body brush along with some skincare products to detox my body/skin, and I've done an okay job keeping it up since I returned home. I have noticed that it used to really hurt when I brushed, but lately it hasn't been hurting at all and actually, I can feel my skin immediately warm up after I brush - it's a nice feeling and makes me feel more "awake". Just thought I'd see if another PF'er has had any experience with this!
