Is sauna good for your face?

Recommended Posts

Is the heat from the sauna good for your face, or not since it opens up your pores (and it'll make them look bigger)?

Steaming is supposed to be good for opening up pores, but too much can dry out the skin i think, which is very bads news IMO for skin.

Use in moderation.

The best sauna is the InfraRed Sauna... but you need to find a place that allows you to turn the heat up to above 130 to actually perspire and get all the benefits.

InfraRed Saunas make you perspire much more than traditional saunas and studies have found that more toxins exit the body. You will find the research quite interesting if you begin reading about infrared saunas.

130 sounds like a hot temperature but is actually quite bearable when you remember that traditional saunas are usually 200 degrees or more.

Have fun reading about infrared saunas!
