Lymph + Beauty
In the everyday operations of a beauty business, we talk about lymph all of the time. We discuss it when we’re talking about inflammation. We discuss lymph when we’re talking about massage. When we are relating lymph + beauty – we’re mostly discussing how to move lymph to reduce fluid retention and swelling. However, when we improve lymphatic flow, we’re improving the lymphatic system’s ability to do it’s job! Did you know that one of the lymph system’s main jobs is to boost your immune system?
Beauty Modalities That Stimulate The Lymphatic System
When we learn about facial massage, microcurrent and dry brushing, we are given so many benefits of each modality. Many are focused on how the modality improves the appearance of the skin. One of the many benefits of these modalities is improved lymphatic flow. It’s usually at that point that we’re taught the main benefit is how the lymphatic drainage can help decrease inflammation in the skin.
However, there’s another huge benefit to improved an lymphatic function – it helps boost your immune system.
“The Lymphatic System plays in integral role in the immune function…
… of the body. It is the first line of defense against disease. This network of vessels and nodes transports and filters lymph fluid containing antibodies and lymphocytes (good) and bacteria (bad). The body’s first contact with these invaders signals the lymphatics, calling upon this system to orchestrate the way the infection-fighting cells prevent illness and diseases from invading microorganisms. “

Dry Brushing Stimulates Your Lymph System
“While dry brushing (“garshana” in Ayurveda) can superficially remove dead skin cells, there is so much more to this traditional practice………can have a sedative quality for your central nervous system, stimulate your lymph system, and increase local circulation greatly contributing to your body’s overall health and wellness.”
