Skin brushing is a simple way to invigorate and detoxify the body every day.
Brushing upward on the limbs and toward the heart stimulates the lymphatic system, removes dead skin and increases blood flow to give you more energy. This 10-inch boar-bristle brush from New England Natural Bodycare has an angled handle for an easy grip, super-stiff bristles for maximum exfoliation, and it can be used in or out of the shower. About $8 at many department stores and natural markets. More information at www.nesponge.com.
