This is great, but wait…there’s more! The lymphatic system has a second function. It drains excess fluid from our body. This process occurs because lymphatic fluid is propelled through the vessels by a valve system in our circulatory system. These valves ensure that lymph fluid does not flow back, but is pushed further. This propulsion goes through relaxing and contracting movements of the muscles of our body. That is why movement is so important to us.
What does it have to do with my face?
If your lymphatic system is not working optimally, you’ll notice it right away, trust us. When there are too many waste products present in your skin, it can cause you to get bags under the eyes, make your skin less firm, pale, gray or puffy.
