How lymphatic drainage can help clear your skin

by Rish Pillay

At Dewdrop Skincare, we strongly believe that healthy skin can be achieved through actively committing to and executing multiple routines. One of the most important routines to include, is that of assisting lymphatic drainage. 

The lymphatic system is an important part of your immune system that facilitates the removal of toxins and bodily waste. Dr Henry Gray, who authored the well renowned book, Grays Anatomy was a British anatomist and surgeon. Part of this book, included information on the lymphatic drainage in the head, neck and face. 

Incorporating facial lymphatic drainage into your skincare routine will yield immeasurable relief from puffy eyes, dull complexion and skin irritation. When the lymph vessels or nodes are blocked or damaged, it can cause a build up of fluid, which results in swelling. 

One of the best tools to aid lymphatic drainage is the Rose Quartz Roller. 

There are many rollers available, but at Dewdrop Skincare, careful consideration was taken in selecting the stone that yielded the best results. The rose quartz roller proved excellent as its properties allow it to retain its cool temperature for a longer period of time. 

Ancient Egyptians believed that Rose Quartz crystals had anti-aging properties. It is thought that Goddess Isis would gather rose quartz crystals by the Nile River and use them to keep her skin clear and wrinkle-free. These beautiful soft pink crystals are also commonly known for their powerful vibrations to heal the heart from sentiments of lost love, anger, resentment and jealousy.

Rose Quartz is believed to also lower stress, raise self-esteem, restore confidence and balance emotions. The Rose Quartz crystal is packed of minerals (including magnesium, iron and oxygen) that help reduce inflammation and support renewal of skin cells.

Anti-aging
The rose quartz roller helps remove sub-surface water therefore reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the forehead, eyes, along the nose and mouth. The rollers also have smoothing and lightening effects on the skin due to the silicate minerals found in pure rose quartz.

Helps in lymphatic drainage
This roller made of rose quartz enhances and promotes proper blood circulation on the face and neck. It also helps in lymphatic drainage to provide healing and avoid puffiness. It gets rid of excess fluid and toxins by massaging towards drainage points such as along the ears and the clavicle.
