Look Younger and More Awake in Minutes, With this Simple Massage Technique
Lymphatic Facial Massage - the name alone just peeks your curiosity, doesn't it? Here’s the skinny on one of wellness’s top skin treatments:
How Does Lymphatic Drainage Work? Dr. Barbara Sturm describes it best, “The lymphatic system functions via and is dependent on the pressure of the blood system. Because of this, the efficacy of your lymph nodes in eliminating toxins is dependent on the efficacy of your circulatory system, which can mean a slower-than-desirable detoxification process. This is where physical manipulation of the lymph nodes comes in to help speed up the process. As a beneficial side effect, your immune system is also boosted.”
When there’s a bit of stagnation in the lymph, this can cause puffiness, acne, large pores and lackluster-looking skin. Once you get the skin circulating through the massage, it’s an instant change, that keeps improving the more frequently you do it.
And I can attest to that, as I’ve been applying this technique to my weekly regimen and have seen such an improvement in my jawline/cheekbone area. As someone who travels frequently (and loves her some salty food), it’s now a staple in my routine.
