The Professional Way to Clear Lymph

The Professional Way to Clear Lymph

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. Ever notice the morning after consuming too much wine or salty snacks or food how puffy the eye area gets?

While this sounds like a battle we can't win, the good news is, we can improve it! We can do manual lymph drainage, and I'll show you how. 

Lymphatic drainage requires a VERY gentle touch because lymph is close to the surface of the skin. The movement to drain it is more of a sweeping of the skin than a deeper massage movement. 

Gravity forces lymph downward, so a gentle up and out sweeping movement helps direct the flow of lymph. Again, a gentle touch is all that is necessary. It might feel counterintuitive, but you'll see a gentle sweeping movement; following the directions in the diagram below is effective. Start at the top and work all the way down to the décolletage. 

The Anma is an ideal tool to use due to its small and evenly spaced "fingertips." If you don't have an Anma, use your fingertips ever so gently.

To create a better sweeping effect on the surface of your skin, use a glide gel product because it will reduce friction and pulling of the skin. One that stays wet and is nourishing is preferable. I love HydraLift Gel for that reason.

Use this lymph clearing technique any time you're looking puffy and drain it like a Pro!

But don't lose hope! We have options.

Let's just say it. Aging isn't for the faint of heart. Therefore, it's important to keep it all in perspective. There will be some things about our appearance that we can improve with some hard work and dedication. There will be some things we can pay a doctor to fix (and then maintain with a consistent skincare routine). There'll be some things we cannot do anything about. I'll never be 5'8" or have the body of a runway model and I'll never be 25 again. 

I'm going to share some things we can do to improve the neck and décolleté with a little bit of hard work and dedication.

When you look in the mirror and you see excess skin & folds forming from the cheeks to the jawline, you are seeing saggy jowls. When collagen and elastin becomes depleted, sagging skin is the result.

And that's not all. Things like repeated facial expressions, weight loss, sun exposure, smoking, and even the over use of computers or phones creating “tech neck” accentuate sagging in the jowl area.
