Ready to add a tool into your skincare routine? We have a range of skin tools but knowing which one to pick can be tricky! The good news is they all have benefits and there really is no wrong tool to add. But what do all these skin tools REALLY do? And how should you choose the right one for you? In this blog post we breakdown the benefit of each tool and who it is best for.
What is Lymphatic Drainage?
The lymphatic system is a major part of the body’s immune system. It is responsible for ridding the body of toxins through lymph fluid. When lymph fluid is built up under the skin it can cause tired, puffy looking skin. Many of these lymph vessels run just below the skin and dry brushing regularly can help stimulate flow, helping the body to detoxify itself naturally.
For Acne: When there is a lot of inflammation on the skin or under the skin’s surface - ie cystic acne - our lymph nodes swell. This happens because they are acting as a factory that produce and store white blood cells and immune cells that create a defence. Dry brushing will help move lymph along the channel and clear up any excess white blood cells and inflammation near the cystic lesions - helping them to shrink faster, and reduce pain.
The great news is that all our these tools will help promote and boost your lymphatic drainage which is a great helper in better skin health!
