Seven Benefits of Far Infrared Sauna Therapy (FIR)

1. Infrared Saunas improves blood circulation and skin complexion

Far-Infrared Saunas expand capillaries which stimulate increased blood flow, regeneration, circulation and oxygen.

It also maintains and promotes healthy lung function

If sebaceous glands are activated, accumulated cosmetics in pores can be eliminated through the skin (sweat and oil glands), resulting in clearer skin

2. Strengthens cardiovascular system

Far-Infrared saunas can strengthen the cardiovascular system by causing heart rate and cardiac output to increase, and diastolic blood pressure to decrease – research by NASA in the early 1980s led to the conclusion that far infrared saunas stimulation of cardiovascular function would be the ideal way to maintain cardiovascular conditioning in American astronauts during long space flight

FIR and gentle tissue warming have also been shown to help improve the ‘health of the cells that line our blood vessels, which if left untreated may increase the risk of heart disorders.

The benefits of an infrared sauna include; pain relief, collagen boosting, anti-aging, skin purification, cell health, improves circulation, boosts mood, burns calories, gives you a workout (without actually working out) and gives your skin a lovely glow

3) Infrared Saunas improve detoxification

Far-Infrared sauna is excellent for detoxification and helps lymphatic cleansing

Scientists in Japan report that in the FIR treatment of clogged capillary vessels, heat expands the capillaries and then initiates the start of a process to dissolve hidden toxins.

Far-Infrared thereby promotes the elimination of fats, chemicals and toxins from the blood: poisons, heavy metals – carcinogenic substances from food processing – lactic acid, free fatty acids, and subcutaneous fat associated with aging and fatigue – excess sodium associated with blood pressure – and uric acid.

Where these toxins accumulate, blood circulation is blocked and cellular energy is impaired. Elimination begins when an 8-10 micron Far-Infrared wave is applied to these large water molecules and the water begins to vibrate. This vibration reduces the ion bonds of the atoms that are holding together the molecules of water. As the vibration continues, breakdown of the water molecules occurs and encapsulated gases and other toxic materials are released.

4) Infrared saunas help wound healing

Some good quality experimental and clinical scientific studies (2003) from Japan have shown Infrared saunas to result in more rapid wound healing which was independent of changes in blood flow and skin temperature.

FIR helped this healing by stimulating a group of cells called fibroblasts to make more collagen which is a very important part of good wound healing and tissue repair.

Furthermore, it supports cell growth, DNA synthesis, and protein synthesis all necessary during tissue repair and regeneration. Excellent for healing burns, scar tissue and skin problems such as acne and skin breakouts – anti-aging effects and lessening/softening of wrinkles due to enhanced collagen production.

5) Relaxation and pain/aches management

Infrared Saunas therapy relieves nervous tension and relaxes the auto-neuro muscles thereby helping the body make the most of its intended healing abilities.

FIR reduces soreness on nerve endings and muscle spasms, as muscle fibres are heated. As a result, rapid reduction of swelling, inflammation and associated pain occurs. Relaxation of muscles and relief of muscular aches – reduces back, shoulder and neck pains.

FIR soothes tension and stress in both body and mind.

The benefits of an infrared sauna include; pain relief, collagen boosting, anti-aging, skin purification, cell health, improves circulation, boosts mood, burns calories, gives you a workout (without actually working out) and gives your skin a lovely glow

6) Immunity boosting

Infrared saunas therapy strengthen and support the Immune system by supporting increased production of white blood cells (leukocytes) by the bone marrow and killer T-cells by the thymus.

“Natural killer cells in the immune system are crucial to effective immune defense. Hyperthermia releases a bunch of cytokines and heat shock proteins which make cancer cells more immunogenic that means they are better recognized by the natural killer cells. NK cells are essential in killing virus-infected cells and destroying cancer cells. The nutrients selenium, ß-glycan and zinc increase circulating levels of natural killer cells and boost their cancer-killing activity.” – Extract from an article written by Dr. Friedrich Douwes, Klinic St. Georg, Germany.

7) Cancer support

Infrared Sauna Thermal Therapy – commonly known as hyperthermia across Europe and Asia – provides support in the destruction of malignant cells which supposedly cannot survive if the temperature of the cell becomes 107.6F/42C and above

Hyperthermia is used worldwide by hospitals and thermal oncologists. Here are just a few countries that is can be found in use such as Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, France, Germany, Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Ukraine, Hungry, Turkey, Iran, India, Malaysia, Thailand, China, Japan.

Hyperthermia is used extensively in Asia and Europe – especially Japan and Germany – but is only fairly recently in comparison, being researched and utilized within the UK, acknowledged and attested to by the Cancer Research UK and the National Cancer Institute on their respective websites.

DID YOU KNOW 2 in 3 WOMEN OVER 35 EXPERIENCE UNEXPECTED PEEING?

Women are pretty amazing at talking and sharing life experiences when we need to debrief or feel understood. 

Isn’t it funny though, that while we might be happy to share details about sore nipples, or the colour of baby’s poop with strangers at our new mother’s group, there are some details we skip over

Over 70% of women experience this unexpected peeing as a result of pregnancy, childbirth, menopause and natural ageing.

Yep – that’s a lot of us. Two in 3 women over 35 years post childbirth actually pee a little bit when we run, laugh, bend, lift, sneeze or jump. Yet hardly anyone talks about it.

We don’t need to put up with wet, uncomfortable undies, or stop doing the things we want to do (like jumping on the trampoline with our kids, running for the bus, or simply having a good laugh.

For most women, it starts with a surprise pee that in most cases can be resolved with a quick change of undies and a pad and left untreated this condition only gets worse with time, but it does not have to be this way Bladder dysfunction is common but not normal.  At Body Lipo Lincoln we know how you feel and have the solution to bladder leakage with the new EMSella chair designed to strengthen the pelvic floor support the bladder and stop bladder leakage. We were one of the first in the UK to introduce the chair and have since treated 100’s for ladies with amazing results.  For more information click the link below.

CONTRACEPTIVE PILL & ACNE

?

I often get asked could the contraceptive pill be making acne worse? …. the answer is possibly…

It depends on what type of contraception you are currently on.

?

COMBINED ORAL CONTRACEPTIVES often will be used to improve acne ✅

?

PROGESTERONE ONLY PILL such as Cerazette can in some cases make acne worse ❌

?

IMPLANTS, DEPO INJECTIONS, HORMONAL IUD’s s (such as mirena coil) have also been shown to make acne worse in approximately a third of women.  ??

CONCLUSION 

?

If you are acne prone, it’s best to be on the safe side and avoid progesterone contraceptives of you can.

WHY INGREDIENTS WORK BEST TOGETHER

There’s no doubt that when I perform combination treatments there is real synergy that happens within the skin and body. 
Many of you will know eating healthy and combining this with exercise is a great combination so when it comes to the skin, combining THE RIGHT ingredients leads to a harmonious end point. This improves compliance with product use and this leads to better results. ??
This was the inspiration behind my SKIN CLUB, I know by getting the correct ingredients into the skin at the right time –  when the skin is absolutely ready for those ingredients –  ANd using the correct techniques to do so will enhance the clinical outcome of the treatment.
My aim is to take out the guess work when it comes to skincare, treatments and help you understand what’s happening with YOUR UNIQUE SKIN.
This is me at the end of a long day looking after my own skin!

MY PERSONAL STRUGGLE WITH ROSACEA: LOUISE’S TOP TIPS AT MANAGING ROSACEA.

If extensive and prolonged blushing cheeks and redness across the mid face is causing
you some concern or maybe your skin is becoming irritated when trying to introduce
a more grown up skincare routine and you are noticing that you are developing
blemishes that are certainly different to the usual T-Zone or hormonal breakout then
chances are you have Rosacea.

April is Rosacea awareness month and I thought I would look at this condition that
both myself any so many of clients I see in my clinic suffer with and discuss how to
help improve this irritating and debilitation condition. With the weather changing I
know I will see an increase in Rosacea clients on my clinic couch and my aim in this
blog is to help you take control over it and prevent it becoming worse.

My skin started to change in my 30’s, I would develop a flushed redness across my
cheeks as soon as I took my first sip of red wine, similarly spicy food would instigate a
prolonged flush and introducing skincare that carried a low pH such as Vitamin C

became more and more difficult. As I aged even sunscreen became a problem for my
tingling, flushed cheeks.

If you’re reading this and can relate to these symptoms and causes then the good news
is I can help you navigate your way round, what often feels confusing, skincare
routine.

Different Types Of Rosacea.

More often than not this common condition affects those aged between 30-60. This
group affected with Rosacea is commonly those with lighter skin tones but thats not to
say darker skin tones can’t suffer with Rosacea – they absolutely can, it’s just the
melanin (colour) in the skin often masks the redness and this leads to a difficulty in
diagnosis.

There are 4 main sub-types of Rosacea.

Type 1 – Erythematotelangiectatic Rosace – a mouthful to say but this type of early
Rosacea is characterised by a long lasting flush across the cheeks. The redness that
can be seen is down to dilated capillaries (telangiectasia)

Type 2 – Papulopustular Rosace – This is probably the most common type as there
seems to be an overlap with acne because as well as the redness and flushing you will
see papules (red spots) and pustules (white head spots) often seen across the cheeks,
nose and chin.

Type 3 – Phymatous Rosace – Men tend to suffer with this type of Rosacea and there
is a clear thickening across where the redness sits. If you have ever seen a thickened
nose with a bright red zone then (rhinophyma) then this is classic type 3 Rosacea.

Type 4 – Ocular Rosacea – Sore, red eyes, often blood shot and the skin around the
eyes can also feel gritty.

When I’m in a skin consultation more often than not is someone has Rosacea there is
often an overlap of all these subtypes, but regardless of what category you fall in there
is always have sensitive, irritated skin that stings when it doest like a product and this
is down to the disrupted barrier function.

Know Your Tiggers

To understand your skin and understand what triggers the ‘flare up’ will mean you
are forearmed. Cold weather, Summer days, central heating, air conditioning,
holidays abroad and skiing all have the potential to make matters worse. Because
these conditions pinch the moisture from your skin and if you have a poor barrier
function this is not ideal. Remember, if your skin is inflamed whether thats from skin
sensitivity, Rosacea or acne then your skin won’t keep the moisture in so its essential to
deal with the inflammation.

Food, if consuming alcohol and eating spicy foods cause a flush then it’s triggering a
histamine response and my advise is to go easy on these. Even coffee and hot drinks
can be a skin problem for some Rosacea sufferers.

If like me you enjoy a hot bath or a bit of hot yoga then I’m sorry to tell you this
pastime is not ideal for Rosacea skins. If you enjoy a spa day skip the sauna and relax
in the quiet room!

Skincare for Rosacea.

Keep it gently and uncomplicated. Don’t use fragrance in any of your product choices
and treat your skin like baby skin, soft movements when cleansing, definitely don’t
cleanse your face in a hot shower. If you’ve seen my video on sensitive skin then I
advocate a gentle non foaming cleanser and I’m not a huge fan of a double cleanse
because we don’t want to disrupt the skin. Avoid beauty toners they have no place in a
rosacea skin – or any skin for that matter. No essential oils and avoid chemical SPF’s
opt for a mineral one.

How to repair a disrupted skin barrier

Stop harsh cleansing and stop strong active skincare. Go back to basics. Choose a
moisturiser that has barrier boosting ingredients in it such as niacinamide and
ceramides.

Acids for Rosacea.

Stay clear of AHA;s and BHA’s and even if you have spots with your rosacea these will
be completely different than an acne blemish – the issue isn’t in the pore – so don’t fall
into the trap of reaching for the Salicylic Acid. Opt instead for an Azelaic Acid with
percentages between 5%-20%

Louise’s Final Note On Rosacea.

This is such a challenging condition to manage and can be really tricky navigating
your way through the skincare ingredients – get this bit wrong and its hard to get a
handle on the condition. If your skin is serenely inflamed then you may need to see
your GP for a prescription product, but having a long term strategy in place is

essential and once the Rosacea is managed then we can move on to tackle concerns
like anti ageing,
