A good facial can give you glowing skin. But a great one can also detox your whole body.
The lymphatic drainage facial, which is more wonderfully luxurious than it sounds, uses bliss-inducing, relaxing, gentle circular movements and will benefit you long after you leave the comfort of the therapist's couch.
This amazing treatment has gained famous fans like Meghan Markle and Dakota Johnston who rave about the glowing results.
Why is this?
Well, your lymphatic system is responsible for cleansing your skin and body’s tissues. It is your own fluid waste system and moves good cells like immune cells and hormones around the body and transports energy producing cells to your muscles.
Your lymphatic system forms part of your immune system and is made up of vessels and nodes. Lymph nodes are like filtration stations which recognise, target and destroy damaging cells like viruses and bacteria.
If your lymphatic system isn’t working properly, your skin and tissues become clogged up causing skin changes like spots, your immunity becomes reduced making you more susceptible to colds and infections.
Unlike your circulatory system - your blood system, the lymphatic system doesn't have it's own pump to keep it moving. It relies on movement, breathing, and yes, massage to stop fluid building up in the tissues and going stagnant - yuck.
How does a Lymphatic Facial work?
If your lymphatic system isn’t in tip-top condition, it’ll show in your complexion. You can always tell when someone has a stagnant lymphatic system because they look tired/fatigued and have dark circles and puffiness around the eyes, and sometimes more noticeable fine lines, duller skin and perhaps spots.
Facial lymph nodes are located under your chin, along your neck and collar-bone and in front of and behind your ears. A lymphatic facial can help revitalize your skin (and immune health) on a deeper level than traditional facials can. A lymphatic facial will feel quite different from a 'regular' facial in that it follows the direction of lymphatic system and there is no need for any pore-blocking creams or oils. Your skin is being professionally 'treated' by your experienced therapist. Not only is this treatment incredibly relaxing with obvious benefits, it improves cellular communication, nourishes the skin and eliminates environmental toxins.
Most celebrities have a lymphatic facial every week but if you were to have one at least every month, you'll notice the improved glow in your skin.
