The décolleté—that delicate area from the neck to the nipples—can be a forgotten territory when it comes to skin care and maintenance. It’s often in the direct line of the sun (and frequently unprotected by SPF), so, like the hands, it’s one of the first areas to show signs of age. But beyond the physical, it’s a zone that deserves—in fact, demands—much more attention. Why? Because it’s home to one of your body’s most essential systems.
The lymphatic system is concentrated in the chest and armpit region—and good lymph flow is integral to good health. Your lymph can be stimulated by a number of day-to-day activities (like exercise, body brushing, and massage) but lymph flow in the breast area can become stagnant due to restrictive clothing and, frankly, neglect. And we can’t have that. So, we’re giving you even more of a reason to embrace a regular ritual of breast massage.
To assist: Décolleté Luxury Treatment Balm. This nurturing aromatic treatment features a targeted blend of ingredients chosen for their tissue-strengthening and antioxidant properties, as well as their ability to support the breast and lymphatics.
Myrrh, one of the primary essential oils employed in treatments of degenerative issues, has been in continuous use for over 4,000 years. It’s also a potent antioxidant, and, recent studies show that when applied topically, Myrrh helped to accelerate the healing process of skin wounds.
Frankincense has a strong affinity for the breasts and is often used in the treatment of inflammation and other disorders of the breasts, as well as breast lymphatics. On the surface, it tones, rejuvenates aging skin, and combats redness and irritation. Studies show that when Myrrh is combined with Frankincense, they take on an enhanced synergistic effect.
Jasmine is known to promote tissue repair, relieve pain, and strengthen the nerves, and studies show that when applied topically, jasmine can effectively treat aged and dry complexions, inflammation, and oily conditions.
Evening primrose targets aging, dry, and inflamed skin, and has been proven to strengthen the skin’s barrier function, as well as treat rashes, radiation burns, and swelling.
Breast massage may not be a mainstream western practice, but it’s long been an element of Ayurvedic medicine. Not only is it essential to preventative care and the early detection of breast cancer, but it’s an opportunity to connect intimately with our minds, our bodies, and our sensuality. The best part? There’s no wrong way to do it.
