Lymphatic Massage for the Face

LOOK YOUNGER AND CLEAR SINUS:

This clever facial massage can be performed in the shower (using Natural Cleansing Milk or at the sink using Magnesium Gel Complex, New Age Moisturiser or PHP Treatment Mask or anything that provides slip for your hands. It only takes a couple of minutes. Benefits are twofold. Look younger in 2 weeks by reducing or eliminating puffiness below the eye and reduce sinus pain and blocked sinuses at the same time.

Did you know that your lymph system is vital to youthful, glowing skin?

Many people are unaware of the importance of the lymph, or even what the lymph system is. The lymph system is a network of vessels running through your body responsible for removing waste and toxins from your cells. Research has proven that a poorly performing lymphatic network can have an adverse effect on the functioning of the body and can drastically affect your health and well being, including the appearance of the facial area.

Many factors may cause your lymph system to become stagnant or stuck, particularly in the facial area. During the day, bad eating habits, a lack of exercise, shallow breathing, stress, headaches and overexposure to pollution will slow the drainage of the lymph and flow of blood. At night, when the body is in a resting state, the lymph drainage of toxins slows down and the waste builds up. An obvious sign of waste buildup in the morning is puffiness around the face, particularly the eye area, as well as a pale skin colour. When the lymph is not active, tone and elasticity are impacted, creating a loose, slack look. Wrinkles are more prevalent, and the skin may lose its vibrant, healthy look. Even blemishes and adult acne may be a result of a sluggish lymph system.

The lymph can be stimulated by frequent facial massage and can have a drastic impact on the look and feel of your skin. When you press or massage any part of your body, circulation is increased in that area. The face responds particularly well to touch, since it is packed with many small sensitive muscles. Facial massage is something that you can easily do yourself with very little effort. In addition to visible results, facial massage relieves tension, relaxes you, and restores energy to your body by stimulating the blood flow.

Anyone with sensitive skin or conditions such as rosacea or broken capillaries will also benefit from facial massage. However, massage should be done gently and more lightly as the skin is more delicate under these circumstances.

WHAT SHOULD I DO BEFORE THE MASSAGE?

Begin with a cleansed face. Always use a hydrating mask or moisturiser to create slippage. Massaging dry skin causes unnecessary pulling and stretching. For sinus use Magnesium Gel Complex. This has double benefits. Inflammation and pain will be reduced transdermally and Magnesium Gel Complex provides great slip. Rinse well when finished.

FACIAL MASSAGE TECHNIQUE

The following are facial massage techniques designed specifically to activate your lymph and benefit your face and neck area. Used consistently, you will see visible results in a short time. For more dramatic effects, try the facial massage daily for two weeks.

Step 1. Using the outer sides of your index fingers, briskly massage up and down on the forehead for 30 seconds.

Step 2. Using the tips of your index fingers, briskly massage the sides of your face, from temples near hairline to the bottoms of your ears. Massage for 30 seconds.

Step 3. Using the outer sides of your index fingers and starting at your cheekbone area right beside your nose, hook up under each cheekbone and gently jiggle your index fingers back and forth. Gradually move down the cheekbone and continue jiggling to the center of the cheekbone, directly below the center of the eye. To complete this step, using the outer sides of your thumbs, hook up under the opposite side of the cheekbones directly under the outside of the eye area. Continue jiggling until you have reached the center of the cheekbone.
Note: This area often contains the most stagnant lymph and may feel sore for a few days until it is cleared and flowing freely again.

Step 4. Open your mouth slightly, creating a slackness and a looseness in the hollow directly below your cheekbone. Using the tips of three fingers, gently massage in a circular motion for 30 seconds.

Step 5. Using the undersides of your thumbs, hook up under the jaw line beginning directly below the ears. Jiggle the skin with your thumbs, moving down the jaw line until thumbs meet in the center of your chin.

Step 6. Collapse your head to the left, tilting it so that your neck muscles are relaxed on the left side. Using your right hand, hold your four fingers straight and firmly together. Start just under the jaw line of the left side of your face, and slide your hand down the side of your neck and out across your shoulder. Repeat 10 times on the left side. Then do the same for the right side. You may feel the lymph moving and, as a result, a tingling sensation in the neck and arm area.

Typically, a facial massage once per week is recommended. However, as a jump start to healthier looking skin with a vibrant glow, you may use the facial massage techniques daily for one to two weeks. Be sure to use a natural moisturising mask or treatment, such as PHP Treatment Mask or Magnesium Gel Complex, to create slippage, as you should not perform the facial massage on dry skin. Alternately, use Cleanser in the shower while you massage. After a few times practicing the moves it becomes habit.

I hope this information has been helpful in understanding the importance of and the techniques for effective facial massage. A healthy lymph system can have a phenomenal effect on your health and well being, and can help create beautiful and healthy skin as well!

THE BEAUTY, HEALING AND RESTORATIVE MINERAL

MSM is known to be highly effective in joint health, muscle recovery, sports nutrition, immune support, and healthy ageing. 

What is MSM?

MSM (Methyl Sulphonyl Methane or Dimethyl Sulfone) is an organic sulphur compound found in all living organisms. It is the purest and most bio-available form of sulphur, one of the essential minerals crucial to life and the regeneration of cells. MSM has traditionally been taken as a food supplement to increase joint health for flexibility and mobility, as well as for strong hair and nails, beautiful skin, and other health conditions from leaky gut syndrome to mild arthritis, osteoporosis, and psoriasis. 

Why do we need to supplement with MSM?

Natural MSM is largely destroyed when our food is processed and can be lost entirely when foods and ingredients are stored for a long period of time. MSM bonds with moisture, so any food which undergoes any sort of dehydration will lack its natural MSM.

For these reasons, and because MSM is so critical for almost every athletic function in active bodies, it is important to consistently supplement with a quality MSM nutritional supplement 

What is the science of MSM?

Sulphur is integral to the production of collagen and elastin, and MSM is a source of organic Sulphur. Collagen is the principal structural protein holding the skin together and is largely responsible for the skin’s mechanical properties.  Approximately half of the body's sulphur content is found in the skin, muscles, cartilage and bones.

How can MSM benefit your skin, hair and nails?

  • Protecting collagen against collagen degrading enzymes
  • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles by boosting collagen and elastin production
  • Boosting the natural production of Glutathione, one of the body's key anti-oxidants ... as an anti-oxidant, MSM will boost the immune system and reduce pigmentation and cellular damage
  • Acting as an anti-inflammatory agent by reducing the production of cytokines (compounds that cause inflammation)
  • Maintaining skin cell membrane flexibility and permeability, promoting an efficient exchange of nutrients and waste products to help keep skin clear
  • Helping to maintaining the body's pH balance

How can MSM help with joint health and support? 

MSM has powerful anti-inflammatory properties and can be used as a natural alternative to help reduce pain from mild arthritis and osteoarthritis related symptoms.

How does MISMO MSM help with exercise recovery?

Our muscles, skin, bones, organs, and connective tissue all rely on sulphur and without it our bodies can not function properly.  MSM is an important nutritional supplement for anyone living an active lifestyle, as it delivers the sulphur and methyl nutrients which are key to the structure of healthy cells in muscle and connective tissue.

MSM is valued by bodybuilders, strength, and power athletes because it supports healthy and flexible cell structures and can help reduce the inflammation of muscle tissue and can offset muscle soreness and joint pain caused by inflammation.

Where is MSM found and how is it manufactured?

MSM is found in the fluid and tissue of all living organisms. It is present in a variety of foods including raw vegetables, eggs, milk and fish, but is lost through cooking and food processing. One of the richest natural supplies is pine trees and cabbage.

Although MSM is abundant in nature, even the richest natural sources only provide MSM in the level of several parts per million. Commercial extraction of MSM from trees is not possible so a process is undertaken which parallels the natural oxidation that occurs in the marine atmosphere and produces MSM that is a chemical compound identical to that found in nature.

What is the difference between Distilled Ultra-Pure MSM and Pure-Crystalline MSM?

With the distilled product, the MSM solution is heated up to a point where the MSM is released as a vapour and the pure crystals are formed and harvested as the vapour cools on the inside surface of a distillation column.  The heating-up of the MSM solution and the subsequent cooling and harvesting process requires a lot more energy, and hence the reason why the price is a bit higher.

With the crystalline product, the MSM solution is "spun" at super-high speed in a centrifuge and the MSM crystals are formed on the walls of the centrifuge.  And although the MSM solution is highly-pure before the crystallisation process begins (having undergone a reverse-osmosis filtration process), there is a remote possibility that if there are any trace impurities in the solution they can become encapsulated in the crystalline structure.

How pure is MISMO MSM?

Every batch of our MSM is rigourously tested by an independent laboratory to ensure the highest possible quality with no additives or anti-caking agents. Packaged in Australia from imported ingredients.

    How much MISMO MSM should I be taking?

    An average dose is between 2 to 6 grams daily. Most people take a teaspoon (approx. 4 grams) daily. If more relief is needed, increase the dose slowly. Can be taken in water or juice after breakfast, although there are no rules as to when you should take MSM.

    It is recommended to take MSM in the morning, as it can give a boost of energy. Side effects when starting out with MSM can be nausea and/or headaches. This is not uncommon and is linked to the detoxifying benefits of MSM. We recommend lowering your dose if experiencing these symptoms and gradually increasing with time.

    WARNINGS: If taking strong blood thinners, do not take MSM without your doctor's approval. Not to be taken by children without a health professional's advice.  MSM can also interfere with the accuracy of the blood test for liver enzymes by sometimes producing false positive results. It is recommended you cease taking MSM at least 4 days before these blood tests. You can resume after the test.

      Great product, well worth the purchase. Been using it for quite a few years now.

      I can't recommend Mismo MSM enough. I first purchased it to help grow my hair and nails, which are growing at a rapid rate, but I have also noticed that some minor pain I used to have in both my knees is now completely gone. I won't go without my daily MSM now.
