Everything you need to know about your lymphatic system and why it’s important!

As part of consultations in my clinic, my goal is to educate my clients so they understand how and why the treatments I perform on them will benefit their skin.

My most popular treatment is HydraFacial, a 6 in 1 medical grade facial. The 6 stages of HydraFacial include; Lymphatic drainage, deep cleanse & exfoliation, light glycolic peel, extractions, hydration infusion & LED light therapy.

What I have discovered from doing so many of these consultations is that most people don’t know anything about their lymphatic system, which has an incredibly important role in our bodies. This week’s post is all about the lymphatic system, the health impacts from it not working properly and how to speed it up!

Make up is such a wonderful thing, I hear some women complain about it being another thing forced upon us by the patriarchy, but I feel lucky that when I’m hungover and looking like death, it’s socially acceptable for me to stick on concealer or mascara and look half human again!

I spend a lot of time, effort and money on my skin, so isn’t it reversing this hard work when I wear make-up?

RE-POST: Why your moisturiser could be damaging your skin!

Whenever I would say this to my clients they would always look at me shocked and tell me ‘I’ve been told to cleanse, tone & moisturise for my entire life!’ From an early age we’re constantly taught to moisturise our skin to stop it drying out, but this actually is doing more damage than good.

HydraFacial – From a practitioner, patient & reps experience!

HydraFacial holds a special place in my heart as it was the first treatment I ever trained in when I started my career as an Aesthetician. In the last 7 years I have done thousands of HydraFacial’s and still love performing them to this day. It’s funny how life turns out, this treatment was my first step into the world of aesthetics and now I work for the company, helping clinics to run events to launch the facial all over the UK and Ireland!

This may lead you to think that I will be biased but please don’t, nobody’s paying me or has asked me to write this blog post. I am doing it of my own accord and love for the treatment that I have seen help many people, including myself, to have healthy, radiant looking skin. Here’s how it works…
