Everyone marvels at how youthful Dick appeared for years. While we all can’t hope to inherit Mr. Clark’s incredible genes and somehow tap into his personal Fountain of Youth, we can do something that Finns discovered hundreds of years ago—partake in regular sauna use.
Did you know how terrific sauna use is in producing healthy, glowing skin? Regular sauna use can help get rid of acne, dry flaky skin, open up clogged pores, and reduce wrinkles, blackheads and zits!
Sitting in a sauna causes the blood vessels in the skin to dilate to accommodate the increased blood flow brought on by the higher temperature in the room. In fact, blood flow to the skin increases from the typical 5-10% up to as high as 50-70%! Increased blood flow brings vital nutrients to subcutaneous and surface tissue. This encourages cellular activity and new skin growth.
The high temperature of a sauna also promotes essential fluids traveling to the skin’s surface. These fluids encourage collagen production—which in turn helps your skin achieve elasticity and discourages wrinkles!
Sauna use also frees your skin of trapped toxins and particles that irritate the skin and cause zits, blackheads and acne conditions. It could also help your skin resist eczema and athlete’s foot.
A Finnish doctor once wrote, “The best-dressed of foreigners can come into a doctor’s office, and when his skin is examined, it is found to be rough as bark. On the other hand, as a result of the sauna, the skin of any Finnish worker is supple and healthy.”
