Infrared Sauna Sweat - The Benefits 

Heating the body directly through infrared light is how we experience all the great benefits of using infrared saunas. And, of course, our body’s natural reaction to an increased body temperature is to sweat - so infrared sauna sweat = benefits! 

By creating a cardiovascular workout in the body can have several positive benefits (including weight loss). Infrared sweat therapy is how your body removes heavy metals and toxins which can help to improve your overall health and wellbeing, even resulting in clearer skin. 

Other benefits of using infrared saunas and infrared sauna sweat include: 

Don’t want to get all hot & sweaty during your sauna session? No problem! Not sweating in an infrared sauna is fine. Many people use their infrared saunas to simply relax and line themselves up for a good night’s sleep. The great thing about infrared saunas is that you can enjoy your sauna at much lower and more comfortable temperatures than traditional saunas. 

Wiping Sweat Away During A Sauna

So, we know sweating during your sauna session is a good thing - but should you wipe sweat in a sauna? You can wipe sweat during your sauna but we do recommend ensuring your cloth is clean for health of your skin.

We also recommend having a shower after your session to help cleanse your skin (if you have a cold shower, this will help to close up pores and can also activate cold shock proteins which can aid weight loss).
