I just came back from a fantastic cruise in the Caribbean. As I do most of the time, I observe others’ skin. It was very evident to me that the skin of most senior’s was dry, very loose and wrinkled. I am also very aware that we loose elasticity the older we get.
Yet, I saw another mature woman in the yoga class on board with wonderful, smooth, hydrated skin. I found out later that she had 5 children. She wore a tennis style skirt one excursion, and I was amazed how great her whole body looked.
What was the difference?
I am consistent with applying a hydrating lotion or oil after every shower. Once every other day may not be enough. So I started to hydrate my skin both morning and evening. I also dry skin brush my skin before each shower. I highly recommend you do the same.
Follow these steps:
Use a skin brush with natural fibers.
If possible brush first thing in the morning before showering.
Start at your feet; stroke the brush towards the ankle.
Continue on your legs and hips, using upward strokes. Do circular movements behind each of your knees.
Move on to the arms. Start at hands and move toward shoulders. Do circular movements in each of your armpits.
Continue on your stomach in circular movements towards your chest.
Brush from your neck down to the lower back.
Never brush over open or irritated skin (sun burns, cuts, etc.)
Please note: The first few times you try dry brushing it may feel uncomfortable. Be gentle and brush lightly.
Here is a dry skin brush I recommend – Back Brush
- Stimulates the circulation
- Improves skin tone and texture
Plus, a great cream – Firming Body Cream
- Reduces the appearance of dimpled skin
- Leaves skin feeling firmer and more toned
AND you bet I am going to keep attending my yoga classes!
