I will like to share this video I found on youtube.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iwM5v8PPjt0&feature=related

It shows you how to do a face massage yourself at home! I went for a lymphatic drainage facial once and its really expensive! I tried this once and it's really relaxing. Maybe I can do this once a week and go for the facial once a month! I also bought the products my masseuse uses. She uses a mixture of 2 Methode Physiodermie products.

(1) Normalizing (HY) Bioarome
(2) Decongesting (VD) Bioarome

You guys should try it! I'm also wondering if the jade roller works. I saw in a magazine that Kate Moss uses that.

You might also want to look up the Karin Herzog "pressure wash" approach...the link below is broken now, but I happened to save this in a word doc. The key thing is the hand movements...I'm sure you can do this with many products.

Quote:

The Pressure Wash System
For maximum lymph drainage to de-congest the skin

Description
The lymph drainage system is the bodies natural mechanism for toxin removal. Sometimes our system can be sluggish and toxin removal can be slow, this results in congested skin that can look grey, dull and lifeless, and even prone to break-outs. To stimulate the removal of these toxins, we need to increase the circulation and aid the flow of the waist product to the areas known as the lymph nodes.

We know that using the Karin Herzog oxygen products stimulates the circulation and the antiseptic effect of the oxygen kills bacteria formed in the layers of the skin, but you can promote even quicker results by practicing a simple procedure that will enhance the result of Vita-A-Kombi and speed up lymph drainage.

Method
These Movements should be done with the fingertips.
1. Apply a small amount of cleanser to the face and neck area.
2. Using light circular movements massage behind the ears and work in a downward motion down the neck. This will help relieve tension and and allow clear drainage. [repeat]
3. Move hands to the forehead, placing them at the centre, apply light but firm pressure as you part the hands out towards the sides of the head. You are draining toxins to the lymph node situated by the temples. [repeat]
4. Move the hands to the jaw line - move the fingers around the jaw bone applying pressure underneath in a pinching action, working out from behind the chin towards the ear and hold. [repeat]
5. Place fingers on the area between the nose and the upper lip, and apply pressure here, again drain the toxins out towards the base of the ear and hold. Do not forget the corners of the mouth.
6. Move the fingers to the eye, to the bone area below. Place the fingertips firmly around the orbital bone pushing the toxins towards the temples.
7. Place the hands horizontally either side of the nose - apply pressure removing toxins from the nose and cheeks to the temples.
8. Finally, reward the face with a sweeping continuous stroking action over the entire area.
9. Soak the Karin Herzog Face Silk in hot* water. Apply to the face, press and leave.
10. Soak the Silk again in hot* water and sweep over the face.
11. Splash cold water over the entire area.
12. Wring out the silk completely
13. Blot the face dry with the silk
14. Continue with the oxygen program.
* If you are prone to broken capillaries please use only tepid water, as heat will aggravate the condition.

Hi Funkydory,

Thank you for suggesting I look at this thread. The facial drainage looks brilliant. And an at-home treatment. Wow! Another tick in the box. I will try this and get back to you.

share my method with you:
Begin the face massage with very general strokes. Take your hands, which were covering your face, and bring the fingers up to your forehead - almost fingertip to fingertip across from each other - with each set of four fingers beginning at the center of the forehead gently stroke down and across following the outside frame of the face.

Your thumbs will naturally start the motion along the sides of the face and slide underneath the chin.

Slowly, from forehead to temples to cheeks along the jaw, and bringing the fingertips together under the chin, then sweeping the fingers off the face and beginning again at the center of the forehead.

Repeat 5 to 10 times.

In the book "Japanese Skincare Revolution", the author talks about lymph massage. One of the massages she says will help prevent a double chin. Since I've started it, I've noticed that the little pooch under my chin is going away. You take both thumbs and massage the underside of your jaw from the point of your chin toward the ears. When you reach the ears, press the lymph nodes in the hollows behind them and push out the waste. I do this every morning and every evening.

Thank you funkydory and bethany. I watched the video and then tried a combination of two massages and after only 2 days I can see a difference in the "bags" under my eyes! Very Happy

I cannot believe I just saw this. I have been trying to find out what products she uses. Thanks so much funkydory. How did you find out what she uses?

Hi rileygirl,

Sorry, I'm not sure what products she uses. But I go to a masseuse for lymphatic face drainage and she uses the above products. After every session, I can see a very big difference in my face where there seems to be less 'swelling'. The above products are for lymphatic drainage. So I bought it and did the massage as per the video.

Lymphatic drainage massage is very expensive, and hence I started to do this by myself.

I'm sure if you use some good oil blend, it will work as well. But you def need to put something so prevent tugging on your face.

Thank you, funkydory. Do you get the same benefits doing it yourself as when you went to someone for this? Just curious if you found the professional to be more effective or not?

Here are some Essential Oils that can be added to your carrier/massage oil that specifically help with lymphatic drainage:

Essential Oils: Ledum, sandalwood, helichrysum, myrtle, grapefruit, lemongrass, cypress, tangerine, orange, rosemary.

I will add more if I come across any!
