Infrared Saunas: Your Skin's Best Friend
While many people already associate full-spectrum infrared saunas with detoxification and pain relief, another added benefit is healthy skin! The near wavelength within our Cabins targets the skin, boosting complexion and reparation; whether you struggle with irritating skin conditions or are healing from recent wounds, infrared sauna sessions are a great way to help your skin feel soft and supple, brighten your complexion, boost collagen, and reduce inflammation and puffiness. In fact, a study published in The Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy showed significant improvements in skin appearance after just 12 weeks of sauna skin therapy using near-infrared technology. Participants experienced a reduction in wrinkles and crow’s feet, as well as improved overall skin tone, including softness, smoothness, elasticity, clarity and firmness.
Infrared therapy has also been helpful for those suffering from eczema and psoriasis. The infrared sweat treatment increases blood circulation by deeply penetrating the infrared energy into the body. Healthy skin requires healthy blood circulation. The skin is rejuvenated and healthier when it has more oxygenated blood running through it. During an infrared sauna session, you are also cleansing your pores of toxins and helping the skin expel dry, dead skin cells. Regular sauna use can also help control skin inflammation, minimizing the constant itch associated with eczema and psoriasis.
There’s nothing like that fresh, dewy glow right after the sauna, and we feel even better knowing all the toxins we’ve just sweat out. What if we could ADD something good back into our skin while we shed the bad things? That is exactly our thought process behind some of our latest beauty boosters!
Beauty Boosters in the Sauna
Orgaid Organic Sheet Masks - Give your skin an supercharged infusion of natural vitamins and oils with one of our three new sheet masks! Choose from Vitamin C, Anti-Aging with hyaluronic acid, or Nourishing with Greek yogurt. Simply apply when you get into the sauna after a quick swipe with one of our facial wipes and leave on for at least 20 minutes. Let the heat lock in the nourishment while you mediate with our new Calm app or binge-watch your favorite Netflix series. This is the ultimate pampering for your 40 minutes of needed “Me Time”.
Skyn Icelandic eye patches - this cooling transdermal gel patch infuses the eye area with highly potent actives and Icelandic glacial water to firm, tone, brighten and reduce the appearance of puffiness and wrinkles. Pop them on for at least ten minutes when you get into the sauna and leave looking bright-eyed and refreshed! These are great add-ons too for those with seasonal allergies.
Mount Lai Facial Tools Rose Quartz and Jade Facial Roller and Gua Sha - for years Eastern cultures have been using precious stones to help drain lymphatic areas and boost collagen and cellular reproduction. We saw many of our aesthetician clients bring in their facial tools to increase their efficacy with infrared heat. For an even better boost, use the roller and gua sha after you’ve applied one of our sheet masks to deliver exceptional results!
