Did you know that saunas help cleanse skin during cold winter months? Saunas are good for your skin, removing toxins and refreshing your skin!
Heat bathing is one of the oldest beauty and health strategies. As the body begins to produce sweat via deep sweating, the skin is cleansed and dead skin cells are replaced – keeping your skin in good working condition.
Sweating rinses bacteria out of the epidermal layer and sweat ducts. C
Cleansing of the pores has been shown to improve the capillary circulation, while giving the skin a softer-looking quality.
Dr. Ben H Douglas, a professor at the University of Mississippi Medical Center and author of “Ageless: Living Younger Longer,” attests that “Sweating is a way of energizing the skin almost the way exercising a muscle energizes it. When you sweat, the rush of fluid to the skin bathes skin cells with a liquid rich in nutrients filling in the spaces around the cells and even plumps up tiny wrinkles.”
He also mentions that the nutrients and minerals in sweat are essential to maintaining the collagen structure of the skin. Bathing skin in sweat on a fairly regular basis deters collagen breakdown that can ultimately result in wrinkles.
By continually flushing body waste through individual cells, one eventually brings back vitality, tone and a healthy glow to the skin.
Sauna usage is certainly not a cure for acne, but it can help due to the deep cleansing it provides from a deep sweat (that is, cleaning the pores from the very inside out – instead of just cleaning the top of the skin).
