Lymphatic Drainage Facial. Why Do we need it? It’s easier than you think

Feeling puffy around the eye area, and jawline is sagging?

One of our favorite at-home facial techniques to do a quick fix is do have a lymphatic drainage facial, a gentle massage that targets the lymph-nodes and drains toxins.
 
Our aesthetician and massage therapist at Gelmersea Ceuticals adds that manual lymph drainage facial is one of the easiest, most effective ways to sculpt your jawline, remove puffiness from under the eyes, and support the circulation of your skin. The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs that help to get rid of the body's toxins, waste and other unwated materials. "The lymph system consists of lymph nodes which are the filters, and lymph vessels, which resemble respiratory veins or arteries.
 
If you can’t get a professional lymphatic drainage facial, but want to combat puffiness and infuse a little glow on your dull face, this at home facial re-contouring meridian massage, targeting face meridian points  can help you look better immediately. Here’s how.

 

Face Meridian Points

Great for  puffiness relief , massaging targeted points on the face can unlock  stress, say good bye to tension, headache and temporarily reduce puffiness. The whole Lymphatic Drainage Facial takes about 20 minutes. You can do this while watching TV or listening to your favorite music.
 
Key Concept

  • Apply Gentle Pressure on the Face Meridian Points, heavy pressure might cause inflammation on the lymph nodes
  • Massage upward to defy gravity, lymph flows in only 1 direction, upward toward the neck. Lymphatic vessels connect  to 2 subclavian veins, which are located on either side of the neck near the collarbones.
  • Use a facial oil or rich cream to improve hydration and circulation Gelmersea Ceuticals's  Orchid Q10 Face Cream is infused with rich ceramides and jojoba oil.
  • Drain around the eye and diminish dark circles
  • Address the jaw line, using thumb from center of chin, drag upward, along your jaw line, to the back of your ears. It is also important to exfoliate the skin which can support effective circulation to the lymph. Our favorite is the gentle Gelmersea Ceuticals Enzyme Peeling Gel.

 
The whole massage should be around 20 minutes. The  massaging upward will help improve the skin’s radiance and over time, with consistency, create a more toned look to the face. The improved firmness, and plumpness is the result of a lymphatic drainage facial.
