How Hot Tubs Can Become Part of Your Skincare Routine

Soaking in a hot tub for a short period of time every day can lead to lasting, healthy results! When sitting against our massaging jets your body immediately begins to feel more relaxed, but your skin can benefit as well. The combination of stress relief, relaxation, blood flow circulation and better sleep work together to also impact your skin! Here are some of the reasons why a hot tub should now be a part of your daily skincare routine. 

The high temperature of the water in your hot tub opens up and cleans your pores. It helps draw toxins to the surface and, in turn, washes away any impurities that might be lurking there. The steam that comes off the hot tub surface also helps speed up this process for a deep cleansing of your pores.

Our skin requires good blood circulation and oxygen. Hot tubs help to increase your blood circulation. This increase is excellent for skin elasticity. Elasticity comes from collagen in our skin and hot tubs can help increase the production and amount of collagen within our skin. This increased elasticity also helps prevent your skin from aging.

If you are looking for more hair at a quicker pace, this increased blood flow can also help with hair growth. The hot tub stimulates circulation, and in return, more growth. As the blood reaches your hair follicles, they are rejuvenated.

Stress is also one of the leading causes to skin break outs. When you are stressed, your body begins to drive up your skin’s oil production, thus leading to an increased number of pimples. By taking just a few minutes each day to sit in your hot tub and take your mind off your to-do list, your body, and skin, will instantly feel less tense. Whether soaking after a workout or in the morning when you wake up, your skin will thank you for the relief!

One important note is to make sure that you hydrate with plenty of water both before and after you soak in your hot tub. Plus, the more water you drink, the better for your skin!
