You’ve Heard of Brushing Your Hair, but Swedish Brides Brush Their Bodies

In some corners of the world, it’s believed that brushing the hair 100 strokes a day will result in Rapunzel-like tresses. In Sweden, it’s believed that brushing the body once a day will result in smooth, clear, cellulite-free skin. Before showering, Nordic beauties grab a natural-bristle body brush (or a dry, vegetable-fiber loofah) and brush their skin in long strokes towards the heart, starting with their extremities and working inward. The two-minute regimen achieves two-fold results: “It increases skin circulation to improve glow and toxin removal and exfoliates dead skin cells to allow fresh new cells to come to the surface faster,” says Jessica Krant, MD, MPH, founder of Art of Dermatology.

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
