I was reading on one of my favorite blogs the other day about the benefits of dry brushing. From my extensive research, again on google, I learned the benefits of dry brushing are skin regeneration, detoxification, improved circulation, and cellulite reduction.
Honestly, I really don't care about the detox and circulation but they had me at cellulite reduction.
So I went online and ordered a dry brush, got some instructions, and last night, brushed my whole body.
Here's what it looks like.
The brush. Not my body.
Whew! That was close.
This morning, my husband looked at a little rash on my arm and said, "Melissa, where did you get poison ivy?"
"Oh, that's not poison ivy, it showed up the other day after we went to the park...Oh. But (scratching) it didn't look this bad or itch this much...Oh. Crap."
Then Tee came in with the same itchy rash all over.
Did I really scrub my whole body with that dry brush last night; most likely spreading the already present poison ivy all over?
That's just perfect.
So, this afternoon, I made myself another little purchase. This time from my doctor. Looky what I got.
I'll let you know how this little fairy tale works out.
