An Ayurvedic Facial is unique because it stimulates lymphatic drainage from the skin into the circulatory system of the body. If the lymph is sluggish, then the skin, which is draine by the lymph, will dry out, get wrinkle, develop acne, blackheads or whiteheads, and be unable to tolerate sun or weather. So, basically become non-functional as an organ.
The skin is the fourth most important exit ramp for impurities to be excrete out of the body following the liver, kidneys and colon. If the skin gets dry and toxic from the environment and the lymph becomes congest, the skin will be rendere non-functional. These impurities slotted for lymph and skin removal will be shunted into the muscles, joints and fat cells, creating problems there, and further age the texture of the skin.
