Salt Therapy for Youthful Skin
Halotherapy, also known as salt therapy, has numerous health benefits for your skin and is naturally anti-aging. Regularly experiencing salt therapy is a relaxing and enjoyable way to keep your skin looking youthful and healthy. This is all thanks to the natural properties of salt and the manner in which your skin absorbs the ionized salt particles that are distributed by our state-of-the-art halogenerators.
Salt is naturally anti-inflammatory. When you partake in regular salt therapy sessions, the salt can help to reduce inflammation in your body and on your skin. This helps to keep a more even skin tone on your face as well as other problem areas on your skin. By reducing inflammation, you can also reduce redness and irritation. Those who suffer from inflammatory skin conditions such as Rosacea, Dermatitis, or Eczema may notice improvement of their skin’s appearance after just a few salt therapy sessions, and can benefit greatly from salt’s anti-inflammatory properties.
Promotes Collagen Production
Skin with good collagen production helps to reduce the appearance and occurrence of wrinkles. Collagen is a protein that improves the elasticity and firmness of our skin. As we age, we produce less collagen. To keep your skin looking young, you must curate the proper conditions for collagen production.
Your skin’s ability to produce collagen is greatly determined by the acidity of your skin. When your pH balance is off, skin can be too alkaline or too acidic. Alkaline skin with too high a pH is likely to be dry, flaky, and red. Acidic skin with too low a pH is prone to inflammatory skin conditions and creates a thriving environment for acne. Salt acts as a natural pH neutralizer on your skin, helping to restore the proper levels for optimal collagen production. When you keep your skin within the ideal pH level (a pH level of 6 is slightly acidic and considered the goal for healthy skin) you keep your acid mantle intact, which is crucial for collagen production as well as being a protective barrier for your skin.
Enhances Skin Hydration
During a salt therapy session, the salt particles that are attracted to your skin also help aid in your skin’s hydration. This is because salt is naturally hygroscopic, meaning it has the ability to attract moisture from the environment. Healthy skin must maintain proper hydration in order to avoid flaking and redness. When your skin is dry, flaky, and red, it can appear much older. Moisturizing your skin helps promote a youthful appearance, and regular salt therapy sessions enhances your skins ability to maintain that hydration!
Good circulation is vital to good health, and definitely aids in keeping your skin looking youthful and bright! Salt therapy helps improve circulation by helping to expand your veins and arteries through relaxation. Increased circulation can help distribute oxygen throughout your body in a more efficient manner. This also allows more nutrients to be delivered to your skin. Lack of oxygen and nutrients can cause dark circles under your eyes and make skin all over appear dull and lifeless. After just one salt therapy session, many people note that their skin feels softer and has a healthy glow, thanks to that improvement in circulation.
Reduces Stress Levels
Salt therapy has been shown to have a relaxing effect on your body and mind. Whether it be the soft glow of the Himalayan Salt, the gentle ambient music, or a combination of the natural properties of salt, almost everyone who experiences a salt therapy session leaves with reduced levels of stress. It’s hard to avoid stress in modern life, and high levels of stress can have a dramatic impact on your health, including premature aging. Not only does reducing your stress levels make you feel better on the inside, but it can help you maintain a youthful and healthy appearance on the outside.
With all of these amazing effects that salt therapy has on your skin and the rest of your body, a visit to your local salt cave might just be your new favorite addition to your skin care routine! You can reduce inflammation, promote collagen production, enhance hydration, boost circulation, and reduce stress all in one 45 minute session.
