Sauna & Skin Care

At times I suffer from dry skin. I get red patches above my nose between my eyes which get dry and itchy. This can also affect my cheeks. The one thing that clears this up for me is a sauna session. After coming out of the sauna my skin is really red, however shortly after it looks fine and my little red dry patches disappear.

An infrared sauna uses infrared light which is different to a traditional sauna. The traditional sauna is electric, wood or gas-fired. The traditional sauna gets extremely hot and heats the air whereas the infrared light from an infrared sauna penetrates through the body heating you and not necessarily your surroundings. This helps to break up fatty deposits and eliminate toxins. The funny thing is that you can’t see the light, but it is penetrating the skin.

Bathing in a hot sauna relaxes the muscles, reduces cellulite and smoothes the skin. Some of the ways to get rid of toxins through the skin include sauna and skin brushing just to name a few. With a sauna the skin is cleansed from the inside out.

If you are reasonably healthy, you can bathe in a sauna as often as you like without worrying about health effects. Many of the health benefits are clinically proven. The sauna is definitely a great tool to work with for skin rejuvenation. The far infrared sauna is like a skin treatment spa. This helps to soften your skin and the heat can help remove tension in your muscles. This type of sauna is great for improving blood circulation to the skin, which is vital for beautiful, youthful, glowing skin.
