Why Sweating is Good for You

People often say, “Don’t sweat it!” but sweating it out can actually be good for your health. From better skin to a cleaner body, there’s a lot to like about sweating, so be sure to read up.

Bye, Bye Zits!

Sweating makes the pores of your skin open, allowing them to release the dirt and grime trapped within. As such, sweating can help prevent the appearance of zits and other blemishes because your skin has been given a deep clean.

Au Revoir, Toxins!

George Sheehan once said, “Sweat cleanses from the inside. It comes from places a shower will never reach.” As it turns out, that really is the case! Sweating is known to help excrete harmful environmental toxins from the body, such as cadmium, arsenic, and lead.

Sayonara, Germs!

Sweat actually contains a natural antibiotic that can kill viruses like the cold and flu. In other words, sweating it out during flu season can actually help you stave off illness.
The best part is you don’t even have to lift a finger to start sweating. These days, there are low EMF saunas that use electromagnetic waves to heat a space and facilitate sweating. This makes it a great option if you want a sweat session but don’t have the time to hit the gym or go for a run. Even better, saunas also offer a variety of other health benefits, such as helping to lower blood pressure and providing pain relief to chronic aches.
