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 the face.

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.

Operating Tips

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.
