The Times Tip Number 3: I love a bit of dry body brushing

You can get lymphatic draining (aka body brushing) at every spa but it’s super-easy to do at home and has noticeable effects quickly. All you need is a £6.50 Boots Botanics Detox Brush and a minute of so before your shower to brush it on dry skin in an upwards direction towards your heart, like you’re grooming a horse! It’s good for detoxification, skin exfoliation, increased lymphatic flow and increased energy, stimulating nerve endings close to the skin to leave you feeling tinglingly alive. Plus smoothes the skin and helps shed that Winter coat for once and for all!
