Full-Spectrum Infrared Sauna is an amazing tool for well-toned, healthy, great-looking skin. After all, it is one of the biggest anti-aging trends in the celebrity world. There is nothing like the glow you get after a Respira Vita infrared sauna session. But as autumn and winter approach, and the air becomes crisp and dry, your sauna skin care regimen may need a boost. Dry brushing is an easy and effective way to boost your infrared sauna session and give your skin an even more radiant, healthy glow.

Dry brushing affects one of the body’s largest and most intricate organs – the skin. A gentle brushing prior to your sauna session serves as a light exfoliation by opening and unclogging pores, removing dead skin cells, and stimulating cellular regeneration. This also increases blood flow and encourages the detoxifying process of the body’s toxin removal system, the lymphatic system. Stimulation of the lymphatic system promotes the flow and drainage of toxins, leading you to an even deeper skin detox.

Infrared Sauna + Dry Brush Regimen

Prior to your sauna session, use a soft, natural bristle brush. Start from your feet and brush upwards towards your heart in gentle, sweeping strokes. As you continue over your entire body, keep the motion gentle with light pressure as to not damage the skin. Now, enjoy a relaxing infrared sauna session while you sweat out the impurities in your skin.

After your session, be mindful of the cleansers or lotions you use, as your skin will be more absorbent. Use a nutrient-rich cleanser to nourish your skin while also keeping it purified after your sauna session. We like products that contain all natural, chemical-free ingredients.
