Could using a Far-infrared sauna be good for my skin?

Glowing skin is something many of us desire. A healthy complexion can make you look younger, it symbolises health and vitality and can help you feel more confident.

It is not just J-Lo who seems to be rocking the J-Glow. It is very evident whilst scrolling through social media apps such as Instagram, that the popular filters are those which give us an even, balanced glow.

Could there be another secret weapon which celebs and fresh-faced influencers are using to help them achieve beautiful skin?? 

Far-infrared saunas have been around since the 80’s but are becoming increasingly popular as experts are indicating regular use can offer many health benefits. It is also evident that more and more people are purchasing far-infrared saunas to create their own spa experience in the comfort of their own homes.

The outbreak of COVID and subsequent lockdowns have emphasised the need to be self-sufficient so that we can continue our important self-care rituals, even when businesses are closed.

Far-infrared sauna benefits for your skin

There is increasing evidence suggesting that as well as offering multiple health benefits far-infrared saunas could also be good for your skin. Let us take a look at some of the benefits experts are linking to far-infrared saunas sessions.

Increased blood circulation

Infrared waves penetrate deeply into the skin and so they are extremely effective at providing heat which will in turn increase blood circulation. A glowing complexion is dependent not only on a nutritious balanced diet and a well-functioning circulatory system.

Poor blood flow can result in poor oxygenation and a dull complexion whereas the opposite is evident when blood circulation is increased. When you skin looks bright with a healthy colour it can make you look rejuvenated and younger. 

Clear out congested pores

Using a far-infrared sauna can support your body in sweating out toxins. Blocked pores can lead to blackheads, acne and an uneven complexion, the heat from regular far-infrared saunas can help to open your pores to refresh and purify your skin.

However, it is recommended that you should enter the sauna with clean skin, free of make-up followed by a cleanse and moisturise after your session to receive the full cleansing benefits.

Can help to reduce the appearance of cellulite

Again far-infrared saunas are recognised as being much more efficient than traditional saunas at assisting with cellulite, this is due to the way that infrared heat deeply penetrates the body tissues rather than traditional saunas which work to heat the air around you.

Far-infrared saunas can help to improve lymphatic drainage and sweat out toxins which helps to reduce swelling and may naturally improve the appearance of cellulite.

If you are keen to remove to remove the appearance of cellulite then it is worth considering this along with an active lifestyle and of course a healthy diet.

Anti-aging benefits

As we age our body stops producing collagen in abundance. Skin lacking in collagen develops wrinkles and can lose the plump firmness of youthful skin.

Interestingly, a 2006 study in Yonsei Medical Journal researched the benefits of using a far-infrared sauna on the skin and found that far-infrared sauna use increased collagen production.

The same study concluded that fine wrinkles and tone and laxity were improved. So you can perhaps add improvement of fine lines and wrinkles to the list of benefits using a far-infrared sauna gives to your skins appearance.

Whilst we understand that utilising Kiva Wellness Far-infrared saunas could be an effective way to help you achieve beautiful skin we are also aware that good health begins from within.

Always remember that consuming a healthy, balanced diet which is abundant in nutrients, drinking plenty of water and being physically active will help you when working towards achieving your health goals.
