Skin brushing is exactly what it sounds like, you "dry" brush your skin, starting from the soles of your feet, working your way up, brushing towards your heart.

I think that, for me, skin brushing is more invigorating than exercising in the morning. Skin brushing is a good way to help your body detox, it helps to get rid of unwanted toxins from your skin. All I know is that I just love how good it makes me feel!

I have been skin brushing for the past week in preparation of the Global Juice Feast on March 1, 2008, where they recommend that you skin brush daily. I had the chance to go out of town this weekend, and of course, I left my skin brush at home. I was surprized at how much I missed this addition to my morning routine. I will make sure that my Natural Bristle Brush (a must for skin brushing) is packed in my suitcase for any trip that I go on in the future.

Speaking of the Global Juice Feast, I have ordered my juicer... can't wait for it to come in... should be this week. I saw this juicer when I read Shannonmarie's article on We Like it Raw about using the "pulp" from the juicer to make snack crackers. Figured if it works for Shannon, it was good for me... (and the price was right!)

So, in anticipation for March 1st, which is just around the corner, I have my skin brushing routine in place, and my juicer on order... now, just to figure out where I am going to store all those fruits and veggies... good thing I have an "all fridge"!

And just a note regarding yesterday's basement activities: I forgot how comfortable yoga clothes can be! I'll have to make a trip to Lululemon soon! They have a free yoga class every Sunday Morning at the store closest to me! Think this is going to become a "weekly event" - can't wait to tell the girls. (lets see if they read my post today!)

I have an entire post dedicated to your question. Check it out when you get a chance. Also, I love your dry skin brush. Very nice. I have a brush fetish now. Where did you get that brush? I love dry skin brushing!. It's addicting and I want to collect brushes now. I wish you luck on the Global Juice Feast. I look forward to reading your blog.

Thanks so much for answering my question. I got my brush at my local Health Food Store. It is called "Goodness Me", not sure if you have those in your area or not, but it is such a nice one!!! I will try to find the manufacturers name, and let you know.
