dry sauna good for mild acne?

Recommended Posts

Studies have shown that sebacious glands produce more sebum (oil) when exposed to heated environments, and this evens out after an hour or so. Short term intense heat of a sauna? I would guess it's either detrimental or neither here nor there. I can't see any reason it would help anything.

saunas are great. Any kind of sweating like that is a really good way to expel toxins from your body. Like running/jogging/working out/sports are all good but it's what comes in contact with your opened pores that can affect your acne.
