Do you feel like acne is your worst enemy? … like it seems to have no mercy. This frustrating condition puts a mountain of strain on emotions and lowers ones self esteem. It certainly brings about its highs and lows. It builds up your hopes when pimples and pustules start to fade. And then boom theres a party happening on your face and you just want to turn out the lights. Its a guessing game as to what it could be that keeps causing these inflamed eruptions to keep appearing out of nowhere on your beautiful face.
I feel the need to share this little bit of information with you because I have treated so many people of all ages fighting the acne battle. I learned to perform manual lymphatic drainage massage during my training, and remember our educators emphasising how closely related the lymphatic system works with the healthy functioning of our skin. Its always been my first treatment choice. I suggest it to all clients who present with acne symptoms because its a very soothing, gentle approach to a skin in need of nurturing.., and the results are always remarkable.
Your Lymphatic System
Your lymphatic system is an important part of your immune system because it is responsible for eliminating toxins and waste products from your body. Lymph fluid circulates the body fighting infection. The lymph nodes filter the fluid trapping bacteria and viruses whilst specialised white blood cells destroy them. If the lymph fluid is sluggish and becomes stagnant, toxic waste builds up causing blockages in the lymph nodes, interfering with the filtration process. This build up of toxic fluids can cause acne and inflammation.
Unlike the cardiovascular system, the lymphatic system doesn’t have a heartbeat to keep the lymph fluid flowing. Instead it relies on the mechanics of the body. Exercise, deep breathing techniques and fluid consumption to help eliminate the collected waste. If you are suffering with consistent acne breakouts, dark circles under the eyes and /or puffy eyes, you might very well have a compromised lymphatic system.
