Facial Lymphatic Drainage Techniques
Puffy eyes and facial bloating can be alleviated with lymphatic drainage massage, helping to boost circulation to the skin's surface and drain away excess fluid from the tissues beneath. It is an art which has been developed over hundreds of years and I always incorporate this in my Signature Facial which clients love, with affects lasting up to 3 weeks.
You can easily incorporate this massage into your daily skincare routine at home, using a little of your usual face serum or oil to lubricate as you go.
Three times weekly in the morning:
- Using the ring finger on each hand, make circles around the eyes, following the socket bone. Circle anti-clockwise 5 times, then repeat 5 times clockwise. Finish the move by pressing the outer side of each eye and holding for a few seconds
- Spread fingers out and starting at the of the nose, sweep fingers out towards the ear, then sweep the hand around the ear in a circle 3 times. Repeat the whole movement 5 times on each side of the face
- Using firm pressure, place the middle fingers on the centre of the chin. Continuing the firm pressure and using the jaw bone as your guide, sweep the fingers out and then upwards towards the ear with firm pressure. Repeat 5 times
