Spa days are marketed as a leisure or recreation activity, something to be enjoyed, but they can also promote good health. Almost every spa day on the market consists of a base level of service including a swimming pool, Jacuzzi, plunge pool sauna, and steam room. Aside from being enjoyable and relaxing, these theraputic pursuits can also provide multiple benefits to the skin. A spa day would be perfect skin therapy for anyone suffering from acne, or conversely, dry skin. Spa days can be booked in advanced, purchased online or purchased for someone else, most spas offer Christmas gift vouchers.
The main effect that all these different spa services, which make great Christmas gifts have on the skin is that of heat. The repeated addition and absence of heat essentially encourages your body to ‘shed’ a layer of dead, dirty, greasy skim, replacing it with a new one. Heat does this opening up pores, tiny holes in the skin which allow good stuff in and let bad stuff out. Doing this will drain the skin of ant dirt and imperfections it has aquirted throughout the day. You may think you don’t have dirty skin, but it doesn’t take a faceplant in a pig sty to get dirty, general pollution, chemicals and irritants can stick to the skin and imbed themselves, causing issues later on.
By using a sauna you can drain pretty much drain the build up or dirt and grease, as well as this the humid environment helps to moisturise your skin so it won’t go dry and flakey. Exposing skin to extreme cold almost immediately after will close the pores, locking in the moisture and providing a great benefit to your skin. Keeping your skin hydrated gives you a healthly look and prevents premature aging, you can do this with skin care products as well as the afore mentioned spa services.
