Summer is here soon and it's time to take care of your inner beauty. Beauty comes from within, but it also comes from sweating it out in the sauna. Collagen is a protein that gives our tissues strength and elasticity. It is also a protein that we get less and less of in the skin, as we get older. Now, fortunately, the heat in a sauna, or a steam bath, can have a stimulating effect on the production of collagen in our skin. Here is a list of reasons why sauna is a great choice for your health and skin!
Sweating has a cleansing effect
The heavy sweating induced in a sauna has a cleansing effect on pores and glands, flushing out toxins and impurities. The result is a healthier skin, less prone to acne, blackheads, and pimples.
Get that glow with sauna
When you get into a sauna, the temperature leads to a dramatic increase in blood circulation. This in turn gives your skin a healthy and fresh appearance, as if you were coming straight from the skiing slope or from a run in the woods. A fresh, healthy glow - with no need for makeup.
Keep your skin moisturised
The heat and the sweating induced in the sauna stimulates the sebaceous glands in the skin. These glands’ function is to keep the skin moisturised and lubricated. By stimulating their production of sebum, sauna helps keeping your skin in great shape.
Sauna before scrubbing
Spending time in the heat and moisture of a sauna is the perfect preparation before giving your skin a peeling treatment. The sweating and the heat softens dry skin, and helps in removing dead skin layers. Give your skin a good scrub after the sauna, and you will be rewarded with baby soft skin.
