There are many reasons I use a far infrared sauna, and skin rejuvenation is just one of them.
When your body produces sweat via the deep sweating you experience in a far infrared sauna, the rate at which dead skin cells are replaced can be increased. At the same time, heavy sweating helps to remove bacteria out to the epidermal layer of the skin and the sweat ducts.
This pore cleaning also causes increased capillary circulation, which can give the skin a younger, healthier-looking appearance. When you sweat, the movement of fluid to the skin delivers mineral-rich nutrients and helps to fill spaces around the cells, increasing firmness and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. So by continually flushing waste throughout skin cells via the use of the sauna, you increase skin health, tone and cleanse the pores.
Not only does it help your skin stay healthy and young, it also helps purify the body from the inside out, eliminating metals and toxins that are stored in fat cells (sushi anyone?), which can release toxins. This helps your heart health, muscular pain relief, fat loss, immune system, relaxation and better sleep, increased cardiovascular performance and increased stress resilience. It helps with weight loss and our Endermologie clients love it. And, what better way to detox before a facial or massage treatment. It makes all and any of our treatments better.
So, can you blame me for being addicted to my far infrared sauna? I pop in during the day, even if I have a few minutes, it always makes me feel better.
I like to use SkinCeuticals Body Tightening Concentrate after my sauna. It’s formulated for toning and tightening the skin on the body and I love the way if feels.
It has an instant cooing effect and helps keep my skin hydrated and firm. It’s also paraben and fragrance free!
Oh, and we just celebrated Olivia’s number 5 😉
