Here are our top 5 ways to detox your lymph:

Dry Skin Brushing

Using a soft-bristle brush, gently stroke your limbs and body in long strokes towards your heart for a few minutes before you shower. 

Massage

As if we needed another reason to treat ourselves! This one brings both pleasure and detoxification, or you could DIY yourself with a good bottle of olive oil after dry brushing. Your skin will thank you..

Citrus Fruits

Citrus aids hydration, carries powerful antioxidants and enzymes, while cleansing and protecting the lymphatic system. Try adding lemon to water, to boost hydration and cleanse the lymph.
