There is one compliment I get that really freaks me out sometimes. Actually, all the time. You see, sometimes when someone touches my skin, whether it be from shaking my hand, bumping up against me or just mid-makeout session, I am told I have really soft skin. This isn’t a new thing …. this is something that has been said to me for at least the last 15 years. Strange right?
At first I just thought that people were insane, like had they not felt skin before? Then I thought they were just being creepy or coming on to me. And finally I just thought that the people they were touching hadn’t heard of moisturiser ….. but then just a few days ago, it finally hit me why my skin is probably as soft as it is. So today I am going to spill the secrets and let you know how I keep my skin soooooo soft.

It can also improve lymphatic drainage, sluggish immune systems and poor digestion. The process works best when carried out daily, but even occasional dry body brushing is enough have some good results.
Something I have always been fond of, but often am too lazy to do, is Dry Body Brushing. Miranda Kerr is a huge fan of it. Luxury day spas have it on the menu. It is becoming far more mainstream than ever before. So, do you do it?
My answer: It is meant to be a daily thing, so if I am being completely honest, no. I try. I really do try. But often I forget or when I do remember it is at in-oppurtune times.
Recently I have tried to combat this forgetfulness by hanging my body brush on my towel hook so that when I go to grab my towel to take to the shower, I can take the brush and quickly do a once over before stepping into the shower. So far, it is working.
Now it is your turn …
