Ready or not, it’s bikini weather! The good news is you don’t have to be mistaken for a crocodile when you slip out of your clothes on the beach, nor spend lots of money on treatments removing your winter scales. All you need is a sink, hot water and a wash cloth.
The act of hot towel scrubbing not only exfoliates the skin, it also opens pores to help remove toxins, activates the lymphatic system, promotes circulation and calms the mind. Spend as long hot towel scrubbing as your daily schedule will allow. Two minutes or 20 minutes is all great! Want to give it a try? Here’s how to do it!
- Fill the sink with hot water. Not boiling, you still need to be able to touch it.
- Dunk the washer in. Wring out the excess water and scrub the skin while the cloth is hot and steamy.
- There is no right or wrong direction to scrub. Just concentrate on one area of the body at a time, re-dunking the washer to keep it warm. Don’t forget the underarms and groin, where your lymph glands are located.
- This practice has greater self-love and confidence boosting benefits when done at the sink as opposed to in the shower.
