The skin is our largest organ. It works very hard to prevent toxins from penetrating deep into our bodies, filtering out bad chemicals which are deposited in the top layer of the skin for later shedding. The condition of your skin is an indication of your health. If your skin looks unhealthy, it usually means that your body is also unhealthy. There are many things that affect the overall health of your skin including the environment we live in, the food we eat, the amount of sleep we get, the amount of stress we live with, the amount of alcohol we drink, and whether or not we smoke. Pre-mature aging of your skin can also be caused by drugs, prescription medications, sun exposure, and dehydration. Anti aging skin care products that have an alcohol or petroleum base or contain fragrances can also have a detrimental effect on your skin. Older skin has less elasticity and can’t produce elastic proteins like collagen and elastin, the way younger skin does. This results in the formation of wrinkles and adds to the aging effect. A far infrared sauna is one of the most beneficial tools for improving your skin. The deep penetrating far infrared rays improves blood flow, lowers blood pressure, kills unwanted organisms, opens blocked pores, eliminates dead skin cells, and removes rancid oils and bacteria – all without any pain. Acne, eczema and psoriasis are signs that your body systems are not in proper balance. Far infrared saunas improve circulation, providing oxygen rich blood to damaged areas to heal and remove toxins. They help restore balance and prevent future breakouts. The result is immaculately clean, glowing skin with improved tone, elasticity, texture and color. According to the Clayton’s Electrotherapy (9th Edition) far infrared radiation is the only antidote to excessive ultraviolet radiation, healing skin that has been damaged by over exposure to the sun. Using far infrared saunas on a regular basis not only revives your skin, it gives it a healthy, youthful glow. If you already have damaged skin, it is not too late. Your marvelous body can regenerate itself and given the right encouragement, you can reverse the damage.
