BRUSH UP
Dry brushing will lift off dead surface skin and stimulate lymph glands to help flush out toxins and improve circulation and texture. Do this before you shower, starting at the soles of your feet and working up.

SCRUB OFF
Exfoliation sloughs away old surface skin and boosts cell renewal, a process that slows down as your body ages. Use a body exfoliating cream or salt scrub and rub in gently with a mitt or loofah.

SMOOTH OVER
The best time to apply a body cream is straight after a shower or bath, when pores are open. For maximum toning and smoothness, use a lotion that contains alpha-hydroxy and beta-hydroxy acids.
