Do you dry body brush? Here's why you should

If scrubbing your body with a dry brush sounds about as appealing as flossing your teeth, then join the club. But bear with us, because we're starting to wonder if dry body brushing is a bit like drinking a green juice: weird in the first instance, but quickly addictive.

I mean, after reading that, the answer to whether to brush or not seems pretty obvious, right? And with summer fast approaching (where did the 2017 go?), we’ll soon be baring our shoulders, thighs, stomachs and other body parts which have mostly been covered for the past three months... eek!
