Winter is coming. While winter in Texas is relatively mild, your skin still feels the effects of the change in climate. In fact, many of us may start to notice our skin becoming tighter, itchier, and rougher — the tale-tale signs of winter skin. That’s where Baudelaire body brushes come in handy.
Named after French poet Charles Baudelaire and crafted with boar bristles to sloth away dry, dead skin cells, these brushes pave the way for brighter, smoother skin. skin brighter and smoother. While you can use ’em in the shower, you’ll see best results from dry brushing.
What is dry brushing?

This technique helps reduce the appearance of cellulite by increasing blood circulation to break down the build up of fat cell, stimulates your body’s lymphatic system, and unclogs clogged pores.
How do you do it?
Before showering, grab your Baudelaire brush and begin brushing at your feet, moving toward your heart. After dry brushing your entire body a couple of times, jump into the shower and cleanse your body with milk + honey’s Gentle Body Wash No. 14. Apply your normal night moisturizers and you’re done.
