The secret to youthful skin that every Finn knows
April 25, 2017 – So you’re in Finland, and you look around, and you start to wonder “are there no old people here?” Of course there are, but they look younger than most because they know a secret. Well, it’s not really a secret. It’s a way of life. They sauna every day. And so can you!
Of all the wonderful things that a sauna can do for your body, one shines above the rest, and it’s a head-turner; the way it treats your skin and improves your skin tone. Studies show that just 20 minutes a day in a sauna will do wonders for the condition of your skin. Here are the details:
- Exfoliate! A sauna does it beautifully by causing you to sweat, which flushes away bacteria and dead skin cells. In addition, all that sweating helps deliver more mineral and nutrient-rich fluids to your skin, which minimize blemishes and acne, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
- Enjoying a sauna on a regular basis helps the body regulate your pH and keeps your skin hydrated. This is essential since the outer layer of your skin is the first line of defense against infection and dehydration of underlying tissue.
- They are aglow, those healthy looking Finns. Is it the reflection of the Aurora Borealis? Not even. It’s all that sweating they do in their saunas. The pores open up. The blood flows. Toxins are released. The skin exfoliates. And voila! They are beaming with radiance and youthfulness. You should try it!
Your skin is fair game for foul weather, and no doubt this winter took its toll. You don’t have to take it lying down, or sitting up, but you should–in a sauna every day. That’s just what you need to defend your skin against aging and find your new youthful look.
