The 411 on Lymphatic Facial Massage
A good facial can get your skin glowing and detox your entire body. Meet the lymphatic facial massage. Here, we break down the way your lymphatic system works and how this treatment could be the pick-me-up your skin needs.
Your lymphatic system is a large network of lymph nodes and vessels that are responsible in helping the body eliminate toxins and waste. When fluids build up it can cause discomfort, puffiness and a dull complexion. It's super important to rely on physical moving and manipulation to circulate and encourage the movement of lymph fluids around the body. When you stimulate your facial lymph nodes, it gives your body's natural detox process a boost, reduces swelling and promotes overall wellbeing. Regular treatment can reduce congested, dry and dehydrated skin, clogged pores and acne breakouts.
No extra spending cash for a facial? You can perform this massage in the comfort of your own home.
Lymph follows gravity so when performing any kind of lymphatic drainage, you need to open up the lymph nodes along the collarbones before the lymph in the face can be properly drained. Always massage on clean skin and remember you are massaging the skin and encouraging the lymph to move, not massaging the muscles. You can start your lymphatic facial massage during any step of your skincare routine. We like to do a massage in each step for maximum results. Check out our lymph lineup below.
To begin: Wash face with our Vitamin C Face Wash and rinse. Then apply our Exfoliating Mask and gently massage into skin for 5 minutes. After rinsing the mask off, pump 1-2 drops of our Rescue Serum and gently press into skin. Scoop out a dime size of Daily Hydrating Cream and massage onto face in circular motions. Top off your routine by applying our Revitalizing Eye Cream using your ring finger. Bye puffiness and hello cheekbones!
