The No-Fail Way To Wake Yourself Up That Doesn't Involve Coffee

July 22, 2016 by Caroline Pirozzolo
shefinds | beauty

I’ll be the first to own up to just how amazing it feels to drink a cup of coffee in the morning. I’m basically addicted, and you definitely don’t want to deal with me before I’ve my 16 ounces of iced coffee with almond milk. However, I’ll also own up to the fact that coffee isn’t exactly the best for you – it can cause that afternoon crash (an excuse to drink more coffee!), and it’s easy to build a tolerance to it. But what if there was a way to wake up that didn’t involve a caffeine addiction? It turns out there is: dry brushing.

For the uninitiated, dry brushing is a step to add to your morning skincare routine that involves brushing your skin with a rough body brush before hopping in the shower each morning. The technique is simple: starting with your ankles and shins, brush your skin using long but light strokes, moving upward until you reach your neck and shoulders. While at first glance it sounds crazy (and also kind of painful), it’s actually insanely good for you (and feels amazing!)

Need a recommendation for a good dry brush to get you started? We like Mio Skincare’s Natural Dry Body Brush ($20).

Because it stimulates the skin and assists with blood circulation, it’s the perfect natural and healthy way to wake up, completely caffeine free. As if you needed more convincing, it also may decrease the appearance of cellulite too!

Next time you get out of bed craving a Starbucks run, give dry brushing a try instead – it might just be the only wake-up call you need.
