Using Your Spa as a Hot Tub Time Machine
Looking to turn back the hands of time? If you’ve arrived at this article, you’ve probably heard about the benefits that a soothing soak in a hot tub can have on your internal body. From improved cardiovascular health to increased blood circulation, the benefits are truly endless. But when it comes to reversing the effects of aging, a daily soak in your hot tub can completely revitalize your skin and leave you looking as though you literally stepped back in time! Here’s how…
Relax and De-Stress
Stress and anxiety are the ultimate enemies of good health and skin. When you immerse yourself in the hot bubbling water of a hot tub it stimulates the release of endorphins, the “feel-good” chemical that helps to relax muscles and facial tensions.
Increase Blood Circulation
Another anti-aging benefit comes about from increased blood circulation. As you’re enjoying the heat from your hot tub, blood rushes to the skin’s surface and floods it with essential nutrients and minerals to maintain the skin’s collagen structure and avoid wrinkles.
Over time, this help improves the skin’s elasticity as it helps your skin cells replenish themselves, leaving you looking more hydrated, fresh-faced and youthful.
A prolonged soak in your hot tub can help rid your body of toxins and heavy metals in the skin. You may not realize this is taking place, but as you sit in your hot tub, your core temperature starts to rise, and this causes you to sweat. During this process, the pores of your skin open, removing harmful toxins from your body, including those that can contribute to wrinkles.
30-Minute Spa Session
If you want to get the most from your hot tub for anti-aging purposes, we recommend using your hot tub for about 30 minutes each day. Try immersing yourself in the hot water for five minutes, and then cool off by stepping out of your hot tub for one or two minutes. Repeat the cycle for no more than 30 minutes. This chain reaction will boost the expansion and contraction of the blood vessels on the surface of your skin and contribute to your skin’s healthy glow.
This is also a good time to point out that too much exposure in your hot tub can cause your skin to dry out. So, ensure that all sessions in your hot tub are no longer than 30 minutes.
So, there you have it! Time spent in your hot tub is one of the best secret weapons for improving capillary circulation, cleansing the skin, and turning back the hands of time. To learn more about the health benefits of hot tubs and hydrotherapy read our blog.
