“[When you do facial and neck lymph massage work] that’s where you can access the vagus nerve, which brings our body into parasympathetic states. So when we do this, we're talking about beauty, sculpting, clearing, brightening, and having that glow—but we’re also affecting our entire body,” says holistic esthetician and mbg collective member Britta Plug. “It makes sense why these beauty rituals feel so good!” In this episode of Clean Beauty School, host and mbg beauty director Alexandra Engler chats with Plug about all things lymphatic drainage—from massage tips and movements to topicals.
