Keep your Skin glowing and flowing.

As a proud mother of four children and nearly two grandchildren (my daughter is pregnant), I've embraced self care is an essential component in my daily routine. Life has presented me with interesting adventures and learning opportunities on my personal journey.

One of my adventures is centered around self care and cultivating a cycle of purpose driven love and grace. How many women and parents are guilty of pouring into everyone else while depleting all of their energy and resources - like me?

Well, on this journey of self-care and holistic wellness I will share some of my findings from continuous research; as I read medical periodicals, publications, study scientific journals and articles because as mama Maya Angelou said, "When you know better, do better."

Let's chat about the lymphatic system and how your attention to daily self care can stimulate this critical part of your immune system. The lymphatic system mirrors the circulatory system and is made up of vessels, tissues, and organs to help the body manage fluid balance, defend it from infection, and deliver nutrients while carrying away toxins and waste.

Lymph, the fluid that travels via the lymphatic system, contains oxygen, glucose, amino acids, and other vital nutrients, giving life to every cell in our body. It also carries away toxins and impurities, making the lymphatic system vital to our immune system and overall health.

The lymphatic system relies on muscle contraction, diet, exercise, and physical manipulation to function normally. Unlike the circulatory system, your lymphatic system doesn’t have its own pump. That’s where lymphatic massage comes in!

Research on the benefits of lymphatic massage is on going. In fact, a 2015 study was the first to find a link between impaired lymphatic function and sagging of the skin. Needless to say, this could have exciting implications for preventative aging treatments.

The lymphatic system plays a huge role in immunity and healing, the benefits to lymphatic massage are endless. For the skin, conditions like puffiness, acne, dryness, dullness, and even skin sensitivity can be improved and even resolved by simple lymphatic stimulation because it helps the body do what it’s meant to do: heal. You have the highest concentration of lymph nodes in your face and neck, so this means lymphatic drainage massage can really produce results!

As mentioned earlier, I use my fingerd to massage and stimulate the removal of excess fluid and toxins. I support my lymphatic system with a boost from plant derived vital nutrients contained in our 4 in 1 Cleansing Masks the ultimate companion to reveal your innerGlo.

SoulOshun Tip: A cleansing massage after sweating helps promote a radiant glow, all the while creating a lifting effect. The benefits aren’t limited to your face either, in fact, full-body lymphatic massages have become my one of my favorite things.

Check back later as we share best practices on how to stimulate your lymphatic system during your self-care routine.
