There are plenty of health benefits associated with sauna. Sauna is also good for your skin because it helps to unclog pores and boosts the efficiency of skincare products, such as scrubs.
Saunas have a positive effect on the skin in several ways. Being in a sauna makes your pores open up and prevents clogging. Sweating helps your skin to get rid of toxins, preventing acne breakouts. Finally, spending time in sauna increases blood circulation in the epidermis, which means that your skin gets more nutrients.
One more skin benefit of saunas is that high temperatures and steam help various exfoliating products, such as scrubs, to slough off dead cells from the skin surface. So using a body scrub in a sauna is a great way to make it soft, smooth and supple. Of course, it is important to choose the right body scrub.
Natural sugar or salt scrubs, infused with natural oils and essential oil, are the perfect way to finish your sauna to provide that ‘squeaky clean’ feeling.
