Facial Sauna Systems
Among the many benefits of sauna and steam baths is skin toning.
Either leaves the skin soft, supple and glowing - in short radiant.
Regular bathers have an appealing, healthy glow to their skin that
adds to their natural beauty.
Saunas and steam baths cause deep perspiration which deep cleans the
skin. The pores open and all accumulated dirt and oil is washed out.
The greatest skin toning benefits are derived from a full body
sauna, but a quick remedy can be found in a facial sauna system.
These 'mini-saunas' apply steam to the face which has the same deep
cleaning action as a full sauna or steam bath.
How They Work
Facial Saunas have an electric heating element on the underside of
the unit. This heats the water (which is held in a small reservoir)
to boiling, causing steam to rise. The reservoir is quite small
which in turn causes steam to be produced very quickly.
An ergonomically designed mask is placed over the reservoir to
direct the steam to the users face. To control the amount of steam
that the face is exposed simply adjust the distance of the mask to
If the face is placed directly onto the mask the maximum deep
cleaning action is achieved, but it should be noted this type of
positioning should be used only for a few moments at a time. After
approximately 10 seconds the head should be lifted to allow for cool
air mixture with the steam. This cycle can be repeated as needed.
Facial saunas also benefit sinus congestion. Most people suffering
from things that range from the common cold to more serious
conditions like asthma or chronic bronchitis benefit from the use of
a facial sauna as an inhaler or vaporizer.
Many facial systems have a separate inhalation attachment that fits
only over the nose and mouth. Simply breathe in the steam to provide
relief from sinus pain or other respiratory difficulties.
Most facial systems have very small reservoirs to allow for quick
heating, however this also means the water will evaporate more
quickly. If the sauna needs to be used for a longer period of time
keep a large container of water close by. This provides convenient
and quick filling of the reservoir when it becomes low.
This system should not be used as an overnight vaporizer. The
reservoir is much too small and should not be run empty. If
breathing problems are an issue during sleep periods a traditional
vaporizer is the better choice.
Additional cleansing treatments can be added to and facial sauna
systems. A few drops of tea tree oil or other such cleanser will
give the skin an even brighter glow and leave it feeling even more
fresh and supple.
Facial systems are inexpensive and usually run less than $60.00. For
this price many people can enjoy the deep cleaning action and the
beautiful skin that sauna users enjoy.
