Infrared sauna treatment for cellulite

infrared sauna will help diminish the appearance as the intensive sweating (2/3 times more than a traditional sauna) will get rid of unwanted toxins from the effected areas. Some experts in the field of weight loss and body fat say that the less body fat we have then the smaller our fat cells and then less pressure is exerted on the connective tissue. In simple terms this means that the cellulite is less visible. However, this may or may not be true. What we do know is that exercise definitely improves blood circulation in the skin and using the infrared sauna after exercise will just speed up the elimination of toxins, burn calories and reach twice the depth of heat penetration into the cellulite.

Beauty with Infrared Therapy

Infrared saunas are known to have many health benefits, some we have covered in previous posts. Today I am purely going to focus on the beauty benefits of infrared sauna use – see below for my top tips!

  1. Probably the biggest beauty benefit for using my infrared sauna is for my skin. Not only does it remove dead skin cells, revealing younger looking skin but helps clear up my acne and gives me a lovely glow. (see previous posts for more detail on this) (more…)

Infrared Sauna and Skin

We all like to look after our skin and make sure we are looking our best, well I certainly do. The key to having great looking skin is getting rid of all the impurities, making sure the texture is soft and having an overall glow. We already know that having a sauna using hot water is great for sweating out impurities and removing toxins from the body but a more effective method is using an infrared sauna. The reason why it is more effective than a traditional steam sauna is because the infrared light penetrates deeper into the skin. And, because an infrared sauna is enjoyed at lower temperatures (typically 45 – 65 degrees Celsius) the user can stay in much longer, say 30 minutes. Therefore, the combined effect of deeper heat and a longer usage time means that the body works harder to cool you down, so you sweat more – generally 2/3 times more than in a traditional sauna.

Our part in London 2012 Olympics

Last week, while we were visiting the Health Mate European headquarters in Antwerp, we received an email from Jon Brown, the coach of the Canadian Olympic Triathlon team. He asked us if his athletes could use one of Health Mate’s infrared therapy cabins during their three week stay in London. The Canadian Olympic Triathlon team use infrared therapy as part of their training regime to boost blood plasma volume and need to continue the therapy in the run up to the 2012 Olympics. (more…)

Infrared Therapy for your Skin

Following on from my recent blog post about ‘Natural remedies for healing acne’ I would like to share how my home infrared sauna cabin has also helped my skin.

My husband and I received our Health Mate far infrared sauna cabin last December. As we live in an apartment in central London, we haven’t got ample space – so for now we have the smallest model, the 1 seater (1m square) which sits comfortably in our spare bedroom. Yes, our guests love us! (more…)

Natural Remedies For Healing Acne

I have personally suffered from acne since my teenage years and now well into my adult years I still struggle to get that perfect skin. As I have tried everything from topical creams to antibiotics and the contraceptive pill, which help somewhat but then of course the problem returns when you stop treatment… I am now always on the lookout for more natural solutions. This blog post is therefore going to focus on natural remedies I have used and how I’ve got on with them plus some others I am yet to try. (more…)
