As far as we know, there’s almost no such thing as effortless beauty. From facial treatments that leave your complexion dewy and luminous to the perfect winged eyeliner, experts reveal their most-trusted, insider hacks for CR‘s series, Beauty Secrets.
Lymphatic massage master Flávia Lanini is largely credited for bringing the Brazilian technique stateside, after supermodel clients like Alessandra Ambrosio and Candice Swanepoel would have Lanini work her magic on them before fashion shows. For the uninitiated, lymphatic drainage is a massage technique consisting of rhythmic strokes and movements that direct and increase lymph flow, removing toxins and reducing swelling. The treatment has plenty of health benefits, from improving the immune system to helping prevent infection, but is now being recognized for its aesthetic results.
It was after five years of training in lymphatic drainage therapy in Brazil and a total of 13 years of developing her technique that Lanini created her signature therapy, the Massage Effect, which combines lymphatic drainage, massage contouring, and Myofascial release for ultimate slimming effects and wellness. Now, models and celebrities flock to her eponymous Hollywood spa to get the Massage Effect, including Kendall and Kris Jenner, Paris Hilton, Dua Lipa, Hailey Bieber, Lily Aldridge, Shanina Shaik, and plenty more. While she helps starlets get runway and red carpet ready, Lanini is also passionate about educating her wider audience on the longterm health benefits of making lymphatic massage a part of their beauty routines. It’s this commitment to delivering wellness-backed results that has led her to embark on a line of yet-to-be-released skincare products, so everyone can benefit from her expertise whether they’re able to make it in for a treatment or not.
As her spa, which has been closed due to the coronavirus, patiently awaits to reopen, Lanini tells CR about how she keeps her own skin so healthy and what product she’s most excited to introduce in her upcoming line.
What are your top beauty tips for people to keep in mind during quarantine?
“Lots and lots of water is definitely my number one beauty tip for all times. In quarantine, it’s also important to go for a daily 30 minute walk (at least) and a good daily scrub with the dry brush.”
How can people make the results of lymphatic massage last longer after the treatment?
“Avoid sugar (sweets, fruits, alcohol, and gluten) 24 hours after the massage, and on the following days drink a lot of water and eat light and healthy as possible.”
What is your skincare routine?
“My routine is pretty simple. I scrub my whole body twice a week, and then apply a guaraná and açaí lotion from my new brand which will be available for all of you real soon. This lotion also has caffeine which is on great on cellulitis treatment. And of course, I do the Massage Effect, the lymphatic drainage technique I’ve developed, two times a week. For the face, I use the Christina Zehavi cleanser in the morning and at night. When I have make up on, I use the Lâncome micellar water and the Image Skincare facial wipes to remove it. After that, I apply the Skinceuticals B5 serum. Since I have dry skin I also use a moisturizer targeted for that and a tinted sunscreen, both from Skinceuticals. At night I do the same steps for cleansing, but instead of the dry skin moisturizer and sunscreen, I use the Glow Up, the night lotion with caffeine from my own beauty line.”
Do you have any favorite beauty tools?
“I love the Gua Sha and the rose quartz roller. They are so good for the face. For the body, there’s nothing better than the Massage Effect.”
What about favorite products?
“The sweetheart of all my beauty products at the moment is the Lipo Sculpture, the guaraná and açaí body lotion from my line. It is a thermotherapeutic cream, so it promotes local area warming and vasodilation, causing hyperemia–meaning it increases blood flow. It’s enhanced by Bio-Nano Slim and Vectorized caffeine, two technologies which promote greater penetration and compatibility of the product with the skin, giving more time of action and enhancing the results.”
