#1. Dry brushing

This remedy helps to stimulate blood flow and lymph drainage. Try to do it twice a day on dry skin, preferably in the shower before you actually shower. Brush towards your heart in long strokes from your feet upwards, from your arms towards your chest and in counterclockwise motions on your stomach. Make sure you don’t press to hard while brushing, the idea is just to stimulate your skin.
