Skin Conditions

"With skin condition I've noticed with far infrared sauna therapy it can be very effective for patients who are dealing with conditions such as psoriasis, eczema or acne. FIRT supports the body's ability to heal on its own because you're eliminating through the skin more effectively. You're also helping with the inflammatory response that the skin is often suffering from resulting in fewer and less severe outbreaks."

Skin Conditions and Far Infrared Sauna Therapy

The largest organ of our body: SKIN
Think of it as a first-line of defense. Our skin comes first in contact with, cold, heat, chemicals. It absorbs first hand all that is exposed to through its pores. Adult human carries almost 8 lbs of skin; that is a heavy and large amount of organ that is fully and completely exposed to its environment. And let's face it…our environment is TOXIC. We can see it manifested in many skin diseases that are currently troubling majority of our population (i.e. eczema, psoriasis, rash, acne, etc.). Taking care of your skin should be #1 priority. Skin protects us, keeps us warm or cool, and assists our toxin-eliminating process. However, oftentimes we do not pay attention what we put on our skin, and so it suffers and makes us more sensitive to free radicals and decreases our ability to be immune to skin illnesses, and it may even decrease our ability to sweat. And yes, ladies… Sweating is very important for a beautiful radiant skin! But can we reverse our negligence and turn it into an opportunity to heal and to learn about ourselves more than we have known until now? The answer is – ABSOLUTELY!

Our deeply penetrating infrared heat helps to encourage the growth, development and maintenance of the body's circulatory and integumentary system; (skin, nails, hair). This increased level of blood circulation nourishes the skin by bringing oxygenated blood and nutrients to the surface as well as carrying away waste products. Together with infrared heat's super cleansing effect, users have seen a noticeable improvement in skin texture, complexion and tone. Many report that their skin feels more pliable, youthful and healthy overall. A regular use of far infrared saunas, has been reported to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, and help reduce scarring. It also helps reduce cellulitis! It has also been postulated that these improvements in skin conditions from using the infrared sauna may also be due to the connection between the inflammatory response and toxins. Dr. Mark Hyman MD, one of the foremost health experts states: “Simply put, autoimmune diseases are conditions where the body's immune system attacks its own tissues rather than a foreign molecule like bacteria. This happens when something confuses the immune system. Increasingly, that “something" appears to be the enormous load of environmental toxins to which we are all exposed." This could be the reason that people have been finding relief from these many disorders using infrared saunas. When the body is freed of toxins, it is able to return a more normal state of health and quits attacking itself. It could be that simple. Beauty specialists in Europe and North America regularly incorporate daily infrared sauna sessions in programs specifically designed to reduce cellulite and improve skin health. The radiant infrared heat of the Enlighten far infrared saunas warms three times as deeply as conventional saunas and aids in the break down and release of stored fat and toxins through the skin. It has been shown to be effective at reducing cellulite and promoting smoother, healthier skin.
