When the body heats up it produces sweat to protect itself.

However, despite what you may think, this is a positive reaction because it allows a great many impurities and toxins, including heavy metals, to escape from the body through the pores in the skin.

This is why there is no need to combat sweating, including when doing sport, by using harsh deodorants, astringent creams and soaps with a pore-blocking action, indeed they can actually be hazardous because they interrupt the flow of perspiration.

One of the healthy ways of encouraging sweating is using the sauna, because the high temperatures encourage completely natural sweating.

It is important to start in steps, with sessions from just a few minutes to a maximum time of twenty minutes and to ensure that liquids, mineral salts and vitamins are replaced by drinking plenty of water or fruit and vegetable smoothies after the session.

The sauna will give your skin a glow, making it feel firm and well-toned, in a word – reinvigorated.
