Saunas have been around for centuries in one form or another. From Indian "sweat lodges" to European steam baths, people through the ages have recognised the value of sweating. There are now many different types of portable saunas for home use, including small units specifically designed for your face. A facial sauna will make your skin feel clean and fresh and give other benefits you may not have considered.

Save Money

One advantage of a home facial sauna is that it will save you money. Professional treatments can be costly, and the ability to have a facial sauna at home will enable you to treat yourself multiple times at little or no expense. Once the effects of regular facial saunas are seen, you will also save money on make up because blush will no longer be necessary.

Cleansing

Treatment with facial saunas will deeply clean your skin. Your skin is constantly bombarded with pollutants and toxins, and the heat from a facial sauna will open your pores and release these unnatural chemicals. It will also soften clogged oils and dead skin cells and wash them out of your face. Clearing all of these elements out of your skin will help clear away any acne you may have as well.

Skin Health

The heat produced by your facial sauna will increase blood flow to your face. This means more nutrients and oxygen will reach your facial tissue and the health of your skin will improve. Skin will appear tighter and more elastic, and you will have a "glow" that wasn't evident before.

Respiratory Health

A home sauna facial procedure will result in more moisture in your lungs, throat and nose. This will soothe your nasal passages and can help alleviate congestion caused by allergies, asthma or colds. It can also act as a vaporiser for conditions such as bronchitis, sinusitis or hay fever.

Simplicity

Most home sauna facial units you can buy from a store are light and easy to use. It is also possible to simply use a large bowl of boiled water with a towel over your head to trap in the steam for even more simplicity. And you don't even have to leave your house for treatment. For a truly therapeutic experience you can add a drop or two of essential oil into the water.
