What is Lymphatic Drainage?
Lymph vessels make an intimate meshwork that covers every inch of your skin, and surrounds each organ in great detail. Lymphatic drainage massage is a technique to help increase lymph flow and drainage.  With an increase of lymph flow immune function is increased and harmful substances are removed from the tissues.

The main reasons for skin to look older than it is, or for skin to be prematurely damaged are, smoking, alcohol, the sun, stress and lack of sleep
There are some things you should do everyday to keep your skin in tip-top condition. Cleanse, tone, moisturize and use an SPF everyday, even in the winter, Yvonne recommends a minimum of SPF 15.
