3 Ways an Infrared Home Sauna Can Work Magic On the Skin

Posted by

Big night out? There’s no better feeling than going into a sauna and sweating out toxins to refresh your whole body. Not only will the gentle heat help you relax, increase blood flow, and take care of aches and pain, but it can also work wonders for your complexion. No matter what facial care regimen you’re using right now, adding  home sauna sweat sessions to your routine can be the ticket to feeling and looking better. Saunas offer many great benefits, but to appreciate them better, it’s important to understand the healing properties of sweating and what it can do for your skin.

Skin Benefits from Sweating

Sends More Nutrients to Your Skin

When you exercise, your circulation, heart rate, and blood flow receive a huge boost. You also begin to sweat intensely. This opens your pores, and all the toxins and dirt hiding inside your pores are flushed out by sweat.

Something similar happens when you sweat inside a home sauna. The heat increases blood flow while decreasing blood pressure and your heart starts beating more quickly and efficiently. This improves circulation, delivering more nutrients to your skin while unclogging your pores.

Encourages the Production of Collagen

If you use skin care products, then you might have noticed the popularity of collagen creams. This is because collagen is a type of protein that promotes elasticity and strength among organs and tissues. In fact, around 80% of the human skin’s makeup is composed of this protein.

The  best infrared sauna stimulates collagen reproduction. Then collagen reproduction helps create newer and healthier skin cells by forcing out dead ones.

Rinses out Pores

Taking a shower rids your body of oils and dirt but it doesn’t eliminate the toxins on your glands and pores. Heavy sweating inside an infrared sauna helps you achieve this deep cleansing. Sweating detoxifies your pores and removes toxins, impurities, and wastes. Once these are gone, skin issues like blackheads, acne, and pimples become less problematic.

Doing It Right

To maximize the benefits of a sauna to your skin, there are some things you need to do before sitting down to start sweating. If you just came from a workout, a long workday, or are wearing makeup, you should wash your face thoroughly. This removes the product and grime that accumulated on your skin.

You’ll be sweating heavily inside the sauna, and washing your face creates a clean canvas and stops pores from clogging up. It's also a wise idea to drink fluids before, during, and after your session to keep you hydrated.


The Final Results

The benefits of saunas on the skin have long been documented. Constant sweating inside an infrared sauna can minimize your pores, lessen wrinkling and fine lines, improve your skin tone and texture, and enhance elasticity. Depending on the situation, you might even see these results in as little as 12 weeks, according to a study published in the Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy.
