WHAT IS LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE?
The lymphatic system is a crucial part of your body’s immune system. Hundreds of lymph nodes throughout your body connect and coordinate to drain fluid and remove bodily waste. Sometimes, something can block your lymphatic system, and fluid can build up. That’s where lymphatic drainage comes in. In short, lymphatic drainage is a special massage technique that releases pent-up fluid and reduces inflammation. This method can be used anywhere on the body. When used on the face in conjunction with the lymphatic vessels located there, lymphatic drainage can give you a five-minute facelift!
Lymphatic drainage massages have so many benefits for your face. Primarily, they remove puffiness and swelling. If your face is holding on to a lot of fluid, this simple solution can completely change your appearance. It also combats dull complexion, under-eye bags, dry skin, and irritation. It’s even been shown to improve acne and eczema. Lymphatic drainage also has incredible anti-aging abilities, especially since your lymphatic system tends to become less active as you age. The best part of all is that the strokes of the massage can be customized to your unique concerns and complexion. If you want fresh, glowing, and youthful skin, lymphatic drainage is the perfect technique to incorporate into your skincare regimen before bed or even in the morning.
