9. Switch to Natural Skin Products
When you’re trying to optimize your lymphatic flow, you’ve got to remove anything and everything that might be overloading your system. Your skin has no filter like your lungs, so any chemicals you put on it your skin have to be filtered out, and guess what system does it…the lymphatic system. So don’t overwork your already underpowered system. Instead, work with it by making things easier. I took inventory and replaced all soaps, lotions and cosmetics with non-natural ingredients to simpler, natural products. That means no more perfume or cologne on a regular basis, too. I switched to natural soap made from shea butter or olive oil, with no preservatives, which I actually now love. I found body lotions that were all natural too. Makeup’s a tough one, so I just only wear it when I absolutely have to, and then I”ll avoid face makeup and just use eye makeup. I also switched to purely mineral sunscreens, too. Iherb.com and Vitacost.com are great places to find all of these products at very reasonable prices….way less than at health food stores. (They ship internationally too, to most countries).
