Thermal Springs - Calcium and Magnesium as pools?
A so-called "thermal bath" basically means nothing more than a pool filled with warm water. For a bath at home would be completely sufficient. However, what distinguishes the water in spas from our normal water at home in the bathtub are the ingredients. Thermal water may only be designated as the spring water that emerges from the soil at a certain temperature, usually above 20 ° C.
Often, minerals are added to the water to achieve certain positive effects on the body and skin. So magnesium baths against psoriasis and eczema and calcium baths promote the circulation of the outer skin layer - a true fountain of youth for both the body and the mind.
Our Tip: To do something good for the skin every day, we recommend our light NAVI Anti-Pollution Hydro-Day Cream. It protects the skin from dirt and premature aging and ensures that the skin gets enough moisture.
Saltwater Pool - Effect on our Skin
Many people love the holiday at the sea - the salt water does wonders to our skin. Why is saltwater good for our skin? It cleanses, disinfects and even stimulates wound healing.
Additionally, bacteria that may be on our skin is killed by the salt water. It is already clear that you also like to use such an effect in spas: you can relax in thermal baths under the name of the Solebecken - and you do not even have to drive to the sea. But beware: salt water strained, despite its beneficial effects, our skin. After a stay in salt water you should definitely provide the skin with proper care and moisture.
Our Tip: To protect our skin against dehydration is our moisturizing NAVI Pore-Refining Hydro-Emulsion. Additionally, it visibly reduces the number and size of your pores!
SulfurAbove all, sulfur is known for one thing: it stinks of rotten eggs. However, why we voluntarily put ourselves in sulphurous, warm water, is due to its many positive effects. Sulfur has an analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect - both internally and externally. Especially when you are plagued by joint pain or muscle tension, a sulfur bath can already be effective.
In addition to that, warm sulphurous water boosts the blood circulation in the skin and improves the absorption of oxygen - aspects that are crucial for healthy and beautiful skin. However, one should be careful not to relax too long in a sulfur pool: the optimal residence time is between 10 and 20 minutes.
Our Tip: In order to keep your skin healthy and young in the long term, try our effective NAVI Revitalizing Hydro-Night Cream. It is perfectly suitable for sensitive skin as well as for combination skin and lets unwanted wrinkles disappear almost overnight. And best of all, you can also use it as a mask once a week - and relax with a cup of hot tea. Almost as if you were on a spa vacation.
