In­frared sauna

Sunday Herald Sun - Stellar - - Beauty -

A good sweat has long been linked to pos­i­tive health ben­e­fits, which is why mod­els, mu­si­cians and ac­tors flock to in­frared saunas to reap re­sults for their skin, too. Un­like tra­di­tional saunas, which heat the air around you, in­frared sauna ther­apy gently warms your body from the in­side, rais­ing core body tem­per­a­ture at a cel­lu­lar level.

Re­search has found in­frared saunas have ben­e­fits for heart health and chronic pain, and while no spe­cific stud­ies have proven anti-age­ing ben­e­fits, in­frared heat has a good rep­u­ta­tion for re­duc­ing fine lines and wrin­kles, un­block­ing pores and heal­ing blem­ishes. Proven or not, af­ter one ses­sion skin is no­tice­ably smoother and clearer with a def­i­nite glow.
