4 DRY BRUSHING
Using a brush to scrub your skin comes with a nominal start-up cost and is “the most natural way to get rid of dead skin cells and improve blood circulation,” says Ilona Ulaszewska, an aesthetician at Haven Spa in New York City. Brushes don’t contain any chemicals, so they’re hypoallergenic and safe for all skin types. To elevate your everyday shower to an exfoliating ritual – and wake yourself up on those mornings when you just can’t get yourself going – start brushing dry skin at the outer extremities. Work the brush gently inward towards your heart. Then shower as usual.
