The secret beauty trick: How the sauna pampers skin and hair

While most of us see the sauna as a place to relieve stress and relax muscles, the benefits for skin and hair are often underestimated. In this article, we delve into the fascinating world of the sauna and find out how it can improve our appearance.

Blood circulation and nutrient supply for radiant skin

One of the most remarkable effects of the sauna on the skin is the increase in blood circulation. The heat causes the blood vessels to dilate, which leads to better blood circulation. The increased blood flow provides the skin with nutrients and oxygen, resulting in a healthy and radiant complexion. This effect is particularly beneficial for people who are prone to uneven skin or blemishes. Sensitive skin can also benefit from this gentle care ritual and is gently cleansed and nourished.

Pore opening and natural cleansing

When you go to the sauna, your body starts to sweat to protect itself from the heat. This natural process also has a positive effect on the skin. The increased temperature opens the skin’s pores so that excess sebum and dirt can be removed. This natural cleansing process helps to keep the skin fresh and free of impurities.

Moisturizing hair and scalp

Clear rules apply in a warm environment: The pores of our skin open up and this also applies to our hair. This means that they can absorb nutrients better than usual. If we regularly go to the sauna, our hair does not necessarily have to dry out. The right care is crucial!

We therefore recommend cleaning your hair thoroughly with a mild shampoo before your first visit to the sauna. After the sauna or steam bath, a hair treatment can penetrate the hair structure particularly well and thus optimally preserve the beauty of our hair. This keeps hair healthy and shiny even at high temperatures.

Sauna against skin impurities and acne

For those who struggle with blemishes and acne, the sauna can be a valuable aid. The improved flow of oxygen and nutrients to the skin cells helps the skin to regenerate faster. This helps existing blemishes to heal more quickly. Nevertheless, you should avoid scratching pimples so as not to irritate the skin and spread bacteria. A separate towel to dry the face helps to avoid infections.

Skin diseases and the healing power of the sauna

In addition to the aesthetic benefits, the sauna can also play an important role in the treatment of skin diseases. The first stage of a sauna visit should always be a thorough shower to remove dead skin cells. This allows the skin to breathe better and absorb the sauna vapors. A gentle exfoliation can also help to rid the skin of flakes. For sensitive skin, a sugar scrub is generally better tolerated than a salt scrub. After a sauna session, less is often more: pure water on the skin is usually sufficient and protects the skin’s natural acid mantle.
