You may be surprised to learn that individuals who incorporate sauna bathing into their home wellness routines find that infrared saunas leave skin feeling rejuvenated and revitalized, resulting in a more youthful, vibrant appearance.
How is this possible? Simply put, infrared rays (not to be confused with harmful UV rays), as a result of their short wavelength, have the unique ability to penetrate deeply into both the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin. As a result, your core body temperature will rise, forcing the body to circulate blood close to the skin surface in an effort to cool itself down. At the same time, a deep sweat will begin, causing the pores at the skin surface to open.
It is this combination of blood circulation and perspiration that provides the foundation for healthier, radiant skin. When the body begins to circulate blood to cool itself, it carries away harmful toxins and impurities residing within the bloodstream, which are then expelled through the enlarged pores in the skin surface. Increased blood flow also delivers fresh nutrients to the skin surface, and stimulates collagen production, reducing the look of fine-lines and wrinkles.
The result? Improved skin tone, texture, and color. Greater skin elasticity. Minimized pores. Wrinkle-free skin. Sound too good to be true? A study published in the Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy reported that participants saw improvement in skin appearance, elasticity and firmness in as little as 12-weeks ¹, stating that infrared therapy “…represents an effective and acceptable method of photo rejuvenation”.²
Why throw away time, effort and money on skin care products, cosmetic enhancements, and “miracle creams” that leave you wanting more?
