CLEO (Malaysia) - - TRAVEL SPECIAL -

Hands up if you’re bat­tling a bloated tummy, puffy an­kles, in­grown hairs, un­even skin­tone and/or all of the above? Squeeze in five min­utes of dry body-brush­ing each day be­fore your morn­ing shower to kick th­ese com­mon con­cerns. “The main ben­e­fit is the stim­u­la­tion of the lym­phatic sys­tem — the body’s detox sys­tem,” says skin and nu­tri­tion ex­pert, Fiona Tuck. “It’s great for fluid re­ten­tion and also aids di­ges­tion. Start at your feet; us­ing short strokes, work to­wards the heart. If you’d pre­fer to detox hor­i­zon­tally, try an Ep­som salt bath. Packed with mag­ne­sium and sul­phates, it helps ward off anx­i­ety and in­flam­ma­tion, and im­proves mus­cle func­tion and skin tis­sue. Plus, it’s se­ri­ously re­lax­ing.
