Regular sauna sessions can perform miracles to your skin, cleansing the pores and improving circulation. The heat and the sweating also stimulate the production of collagen, which gives your skin a more youthful appearance. One session in the sauna might not have a lot of impact, but if you turn regular sauna baths into a habit you will soon see a difference in your complexion. A great tip is to apply your moisturiser while your skin is still damp from showering.
Did you know that by increasing the body temperature regularly, you can actually generate dramatic improvements in muscular growth and endurance? When your body is subjected to heat, it gradually becomes used to it, which prompts a number of beneficial changes in your body. One of them is an increased plasma volume and blood flow to your heart and muscles, which gives both an increase in athletic endurance and increased muscle mass.
Having your own sauna at home, you can disconnect from the huzzle and bustle of everyday life whenever you feel like it.
Just imagine: no more need for expensive spa-weekends or visits to the beauty salon - with your own sauna you can have it all in the comfort of your own home. Why not give your whole bathroom a spa makeover!
With fresh towels, scented candles and luxurious soaps, spending an evening in will feel like the most tempting option of all.
You don’t need a big bathroom in order to enjoy the benefits of sauna bathing. Even if you live in a tiny city apartment, there is probably enough room to fit a small sauna.

A mini sauna is the perfect way to add a sense of luxury to your compact living.
