Dry skin brushing works on the lymphatic system. This is the system that connects all of your lymph nodes together (trust me, you have tons of them!) to help your immune system, eliminate toxins, and get rid of fat! You have lymph nodes in your neck, along your collar bone, in your arm pits, in your belly, down in the inguinal area (where the leg and abdomen meet), and more.
What exactly is menopause? It is that time in a woman's life when her menstrual cycles completely end for at least 12 months and some moves completely out of her reproductive years into the next phase.

In fact, 20% of those obese adults live in Australia, Canada, Ireland, the UK, New Zealand, and of course, the United States. Ugh.
