There are those of us who avoid facials completely because we simply cannot tolerate the pain that comes with it (facial extractions are the absolute worst, aren’t they?).
So when we found out about Neal’s Yard Remedies’ Organic Lymphatic Facial that promised none of the typical, our interest was piqued.
How is it different? Well, this all-new treatment was designed for “a high-performing lymphatic detox therapy, using a combination of special crystal massage techniques and simulative movements.” The procedure increases lymphatic drainage for a thorough cleanse and natural face lift.
The treatment starts with a relaxing 40-minute back and shoulder massage. This eases you into the 80-minute facial massage and this is where the real treat begins. Using crystals massage wands and a unique blend of eight different organic essential oils, lymph nodes are targeted. What this does is it stimulates natural lymphatic movement to drain the build-up of accumulated waste fluids from the cells.
And if feeling and looking good isn’t enough for you (we saw visible ‘lifted’ radiance post-facial), here are 10 extra benefits of getting a lymphatic facial treatment.
- Promotes blood circulation
- Skin is more supple and radiant
- Cells are activated and face regains elasticity
- Allows renewal of cells
- Reduces wrinkles
- Refines pores
- Lightens dark circles, puffiness and eye bags
- Lifting and firming
- Enables better absorption of skin care products
- Controls pigmentation and evens out the skin tone
This is definitely the most innovative holistic detox facial we’ve tried and tested (and fell asleep during) in a while!
