The lymphatic system works 24/7 to get rid of waste in the body. You could say, it’s the body’s housekeeper.
Lymph that isn't draining in the face results in puffiness and some sagging. What makes lymph get stuck can range from a sedentary lifestyle, hormonal fluctuations, environmental pollution, infections, stress, and even food and beverages.

I know it can be challenging to decide what serum is right for your skin so I've created this article to help.
Start by choosing one or two of your biggest concerns and then choose the product(s) that contain the active ingredients to treat your top two concerns. If you have several issues, considering using different serums on alternative days, or using one in the AM and other one in the PM. Just don't pile on too many at one time as some could counter the other. For example, don't use a peptide serum with an AHA serum because the acidic pH of AHAs is undesirable for peptides.

One of the first places we begin to show aging on the face is the eye area. So it makes sense to be vigilant with skincare for the eyes.
Many things affect the appearance of the skin around our eyes. For example, failure to wear sunglasses year-round to prevent the squinting that can increase crow's feet, to applying eye care products with a tugging and pulling instead of a patting technique.
And I'd be remiss if I didn't point out that smoking, alcohol consumption, lack of sleep, dehydration, and water-retention from too much sodium in the diet are also factors affecting the skin around the eyes.
But don't be discouraged, there are many things we can do to take great care of the eyes.
The overall health of skin is influenced by several factors, one of which is pH. Often overlooked is the pH level in skincare products and the role this plays in affecting skin pH.
If we use products that are too acidic or too alkaline, problems can occur. Indications that skin is too alkaline can be flaky, red skin. If skin is too acidic, the chances of inflammatory skin conditions like eczema and acne will be present.
Cleansers are often a big offender at sabotaging the skin barrier. Just because it's organic or natural doesn't mean it has a safe pH.
