Is sauna good for your skin?

My local gym where I live has a sauna and the last few month every time I was in the gym I was in sauna. I find this relaxing and it has been beneficial for my skin as well. But lastly, I figured that my upper thighs shows many small spider veins.Is sauna good for your skin?


Saunas provide a natural deep cleansing of the body from impurities and toxins.
Sauna helps relax and de-stress you. Stress is the ultimate enemy of health and skin. Taking 15–20 minutes in a hot sauna can help relax your mind and body.

But also Saunas can over-dry your skin. Heat dries out skin, and the body’s natural reaction to dry skin is to create more oil to balance moisture levels. This could lead to an increase in breakouts and dry skin patches.
Saunas increase circulation the pulse rates jump by 30% or more. The blood flow is directed to the skin. That may cause of spider veins. They’re not just a cosmetic problem.

The best way is start to treat spider veins from the first few hours they come up.
To improve appearance of my thighs I consider few options:
I exercise regularly to improve my leg strength, circulation, and vein strength. I am making focus on exercises that work my legs, such as walking or running.

I started eat pineapple on my daily base. Fresh pineapple contains enzyme Bromelain, that specific substance has anti-inflammatory aspect for broken capillaries and helps strengthens the wall of the vein.



I find Arnica Tablets as really helpful supplement. Arnica was taken only on the first day of injury – first 6 hours. This natural remedies help treat and reduce the symptoms of bruises.
As a skin Threrapist I found Dermalogica Pure Light Spf 50 the best product to lighten up dameged skin. This shield treats hyperpigmentation , brown spots, discoloration and uneven skin tone. The cream was applied 2 time a day on particular areas.



This very intensive program took place in the last 7 days. Unfortunately, once broken blood vessels appear, it may be very difficult to get rid of them. While it is not possible to completely avoid broken blood vessels I will do everything to minimize the risk.
Anyway I am very delighted with the results on that stage. See the pictures:


I love sauna and I really feel that it has helped me overall. But I need to consider to stop treating myself that way and make more focus on my exercises. However, it is not for everyone. Do your own research and find out what is your sauna benefit.
