Are you ready to boost your lymphatic system for a clearer complexion?
Boost your lymphatic system, it is not only good for your skin, it will give your whole body a boost. Your lymphatic drainage system transports and gets rid of waste, dead cells, toxins and excess fluid. It supports every other system in the body including your immune and digestive system and works hard to keep your body and skin healthy. Lack of exercise, bad diet, toxins, and stress all create a heavy workload for your lymphatic system so the healthier you are in general the easier it is for the lymphatic system to detox and function at its best. It will magically improve your skin and make it easy to maintain a healthy clear complexion.
Exercise speeds up circulation and helps the body get rid of excess waste and toxins and promotes lymphatic drainage. It helps to banish cellulite and is good for your skin, face and body.
Reduce your stress levels. Meditation, yoga and relaxation techniques allow the body to relieve stress, recharge and enhance the immune system.
Massage increases the circulation and assists lymphatic drainage. Spend an extra minute or two rubbing in your body balm or cream after showering daily, and as often as possible, several times a week ideally, give yourself a facial massage to relieve the muscle tension and lift. It is good for the skin, will improve skin texture and stimulate cell renewal.
Dehydration can slow down the flow of lymph. Drink at least 8 glasses of water throughout the day, add a splash of cider vinegar, lemon juice or apple juice if you find water boring and green tea is a wonderful substitute for caffeine drinks to hydrate and increase the flow of lymph. Read more about how amazing green tea is for you in last weeks blog post HERE. Use a facial mist several times a day to help stay hydrated.
Dry skin brushing with a natural bristle skin brush in the direction of lymph flow is good for the skin, it is also a fantastic way to stimulate the circulation, remove dead cells and will improve skin texture and cell renewal.
Reduce salt intake. Too much salt in the diet slows down the removal of waste, along with refined foods such as processed meats, greasy food, additives, preservatives and too much alcohol, apart from the occasional glass of red wine which offers the benefits of polyphenols and flavonoids.
