Autumn is here and it’s time to take care of yourself. Take advantage of the sauna and create your own home spa! Here we recommend a spa ritual - before, during and after your sauna session, that works wonders for both body and soul.
Before your sauna bath: Start by dry brushing your body which increases blood circulation and starts a detox process in the body. Then go on to take a hot shower to promote perspiration. You are now ready to go into the sauna to unwind and relax from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
In the sauna: Exfoliate the body with salt or body scrub to remove dead skin cells. Add a nourishing face mask that is suitable for your skin type. In the sauna, the skin has an increased absorption capacity which helps it to absorb the ingredients from skin care products both faster and deeper.
After the sauna session: Take a cool shower after the sauna session to close the pores to rid the skin of toxins that have been released. Finish the ritual with a moisturizing facial crème and a lovely body lotion.
The skin is now soft and smooth, and you feel calm and relaxed!
