Multi-Masking: The Beauty Trend You Need Try

4 Simple Tips To Support Your Lymphatic System (And Create Clear Skin)

We can’t stress enough how essential lymphatic drainage is for a clear, healthy, balanced complexion. The lymphatic system is the body’s natural cleansing + filtering system and is responsible for removing waste + harmful substances, recycling nutrients back into the bloodstream, sustaining healthy cells + immunity and maintaining homeostasis within the body. But when this system is blocked or when lymph fluid becomes stagnant, it causes toxic buildup in tissues – which can lead to not only acne, congestion and other inflammatory skin conditions but also illness and disease within the body. Clearly, the lymphatic flow has a bit part...

With the demands of daily life and the hustle our culture has come to praise, it’s all too easy to become distracted and disconnected from ourselves, our hearts and how we want to live.
