Hey, mom. We love you, we appreciate you, we look up to you, but we’re still pretty bad at finding you a proper mother’s day gift, until now. While we shouldn’t have to waited until Mother’s Day to show you our adoration but it can serve as a good reminder that you deserve to be showered with all the love we can give.
This year, we’re passing over your Amazon wishlist, sappy cards and bubble bath basket. Instead, we’ll be pooling together all the pennies we have to gift you something that will provide you as much love as we felt at each holiday, soccer game and recital over the years. We hope you’ll love this far infrared home sauna as much as we love you.
Yes Mom, you are going to sweat your way to perfect health and beautiful skin. In your new far infrared sauna we are literally manufacturing body heat and charging the body with its own energy. As the body temperature rises to a low-grade immune boosting fever, your body says I need to cool down. One of the ways our body does that, in addition to sweating, is by increasing respirations and heart rate to cool the blood and pump it around the body.
The circulatory system is the proverbial river of life that flows throughout our bodies. It carries precious nutrients, hormones and other chemicals through organ to organ and cell to cell. It is a very important aspect of overall health and metabolic function. It is through the circulatory system that immune cells are delivered to protect the body from pathogens. One of the key factors in healthy, glowing skin is great circulation. Proper blood flow encouraged by your new sauna ensures even skin tone, nutrient delivery to the skin cells and the healthy detoxification of the skin. We need circulation for both nourishment, detoxification and great skin.
Far infrared sauna produces a passive cardiovascular workout that will bring increase blood flow to the skin encouraging collagen production and cellular detoxification. The happy byproduct of a far infrared sauna induced passive cardiovascular workout is that it will reduce LDLs or the bad cholesterol in our blood.

Stop Stressing your skin
We all know that stress hormones can wreak havoc on the body and the skin. Chronic stress harms the integrity of the collagen in skin. Stress effects skin tone; it causes alopecia areata, psoriasis, and atopic dermatitis. Just relaxing in a sauna at the end of your day is going to detox stress hormones that contribute to obesity a contributor to sleep apnea. Sleep apnea stresses out the the cardiovascular system and has also been shown to affect bone health. Using your sauna 30 minutes 3 to 5 time per week will burn lots of calories, improve cardiovascular health functioning, reduce stress hormones and rejuvenate and debris the skin. Your sauna session will contribute to skin hydration, plumpness and an overall youthful glow. You can learn more about infrared skin benefits here.
What about sleep?
Forget foundation—when it comes to your appearance, sleep will take you further. From your complexion to your attitude and almost everything in between, sleep is the most important cosmetic you need. When it comes to your beauty routine, sleep may be the closest thing there is to a fountain of youth. Your body repairs itself and recovers while you snooze, and that leads to a long list of benefits for your looks. The key is to get enough shut-eye — 7 to 9 quality hours each night.
Chronic pain or insomnia can get in the way of this important beauty step. Lack of sleep can often be a result of chronic pain, apnea, insomnia and stress. That is where your far infrared sauna comes in. You are going to burn up to 600 calories in a 30 minute session of sweating that will clean your skin from the inside out eliminating toxins and producing a passive cardiovascular workout that will wash away the pain and stress of the day and prepare for your first restful night in decades. I promise you haven’t slept like this since you were a baby. One of the most immediate health benefits that our clients report is how well they sleep after their very first session.
Get rid of raccoon eyes. Dark circles under the eyes are a clear sign of sleep deprivation. At night the skin enters a state of repair, “regenerating new skin cells and cycling oxygen and nutrients.” The body removes oxygen from the blood when it is lacking sleep, and in the thin skin under the eyes, this creates the telltale darkened tint. Getting enough sleep at night after your far infrared sauna session will allow your skin to repair itself and be free of those dark circles.
Sleep promoted by far infrared sauna improves your overall complexion and reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
Youthful skin is more resilient than older skin, but lack of sleep catches up with everyone. Tired skin can be pimple-prone, red, puffy, dry and even wrinkly. People who sleep poorly are prone to sagging skin, uneven pigmentation, fine lines and reduced elasticity, while people who sleep enough retain more moisture in their skin. Collagen regenerates while you are sleeping, making skin plumper, more elastic and wrinkle-free. Dermatologist Patricia Wexler says that only sleeping five hours at night causes twice the amount of fine lines than sleeping for seven because your skin dries out as you sleep. The more often you miss out on sleep, the worse it can get. In fact, the Sleep School in London found that getting only six hours of sleep for five nights in a row increased wrinkles and fine lines by 45 percent!
Mom, we got you this sauna so you can look younger, feel younger and be healthier for the endless memories yet to come. We love you!
