Our skin is our largest organ, so it’s crucial that we not only take good care of it, but love it too! It doesn’t need to be complicated or expensive, and actually I believe that it’s best to keep beauty treatments simple and reduce the amount of potions we put on our bodies.
I know from my years of skin issues, the majority of my problems were related to my diet but sometimes you can do something on the outside of your skin that can really make an impact and this simple treatment does just that!
I’ve been doing this ancient Ayurvedic technique for years and it’s something I’ve wanted to share in a video for a long time. I use it about three times a week to rejuvenate my skin and stimulate my lymphatic system. This method also helps make skin glow and keeps it soft without needing to use very much moisturizer.
This technique has also been known to improve the appearance of cellulite (temporarily), increase circulation, and unclog your pores. It’s like a spa treatment, without the expensive spa!
In this new Food Babe TV episode, I show you exactly how it’s done and why it’s so great for the health of your skin…

Video notes & extra tidbits…
I dry brush from my toes to head, doing my stomach last on completely dry skin before bathing. After I’m done, I hop in the shower and use a mild soap (like this Pure Olive Oil Soap) to cleanse my body. After I’m done showering, I moisturize my body with organic sesame oil, olive oil or coconut oil mixed with a little bit of body lotion.
If I’m not dry brushing, I sometimes like to put on oil before I shower. If you’ve never tried this, you must, it’s magical for your skin!!! You put the oil on, and bathe and cleanse as normal but when you come out your skin will be silky smooth and you’ll barely need any moisturizer. This method protects your skin from the over exposure of harsh chemicals that could be present in your water.
Having great skin is possible when you pay attention to what you eat and take care of it with simple techniques like these.
Do you know someone who could use a little dry brushing in their life? If so, please share this video and post with them!
