Floating should be part of your beauty and skin care routine

Have you heard about one of the best kept industry secrets?

Floatation therapy is the latest beauty weapon!

Often when you hear about the benefits of floatation therapy, you’re told about its effects on your mind as a relaxation tool. Often the benefits that it has on your physical appearance is often overlooked.

The high concentration of Magnesium in our float pods that gets absorbed through your skin can do wonders for your beauty routine. Magnesium is a vital mineral, which is proven to be most effective when absorbed through the skin, as opposed to being digested. This makes floatation therapy the ideal way to get your regular dose.

Epsom salts, or Magnesium sulphate, even acts as a natural facial and all over body cleanser. Just by soaking in the highly concentrated water, you should notice less acne, blackheads and the re-hydration of skin cells, whereby reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

Magnesium also acts as a natural exfoliator, which means that you are gently removing dead skin layer effortlessly, just while you glide into R.E.S.T. (restricted environmental stimulation therapy). With regular sessions, these improvements will become more amplified.

Another benefit of regular floatation therapy and exfoliation is a reduction in the appearance of cellulite. Floatation Therapy helps to improve your blood circulation and relaxes your muscles, which in turn can make cellulite less noticeable on the top layers of your skin.

Floatation therapy is commonly used to regulate sleeping patterns.

It’s no secret that staying well-rested is a major anti-ageing secret.

A healthy sleep routine can help lower stress levels by reducing stress hormones in your body. One hour of floatation therapy has been likened to 4 hours sleep. It has certainly been shown in research that it improves one’s quality of sleep.

You might also notice your hair has a natural shine and bounce to it after you step out of our float pod. Again, you can thank the Magnesium for this, as it gently cleanses your hair of excess oils and product build-up while you soak.

So next time you’re looking to improve your beauty care routine, why not consider adding this holistic approach of floatation therapy. Not only will it slow down your body’s ageing process, but it will also provide so many other benefits to your body while doing so.

Isolation tanks may have been around since the 1970s, but we now have the research to back up what only a few people in the health and beauty industry know, love and use on a regular weekly basis.

Any hairdresser knows how good magnesium is for adding volume to one’s hair.

The Epsom salts helps dilate your cells, which not only improves peripheral circulation but also increases the body’s ability to heal itself.
