Saying hello to Spring means saying hello to all those bits we’ve had hidden over the past few months. So now we’ve seen a bit of sun, we’re all trying to swiftly achieve smooth legs and sleek upper arms after months of being undercover. Nothing gets silky, bump-free skin like dry body brushing does. Pair Champneys soft-bristled version with their Mineral Detox Shower Gel and you’ll be on the fast track to soft glowing limbs.
Dry brushing is a great way to stimulate circulation. I’ve been using Champneys’ Luxury Body Brush (£10) all over just before stepping into my morning shower. Start at the ankles and brush lightly and briskly towards the heart. It puts a real zing in your step and livens up the skin, as well as getting rid of dry cells.
Follow up with the Mineral Detox Shower Gel (£6). It is enriched with seaweed extract and helps to detoxify skin. It foams up and feels like it is giving a really deep clean. If you can face it, turn the shower to cold just before you finish to really get the circulation going.
