Did you know that we fill our float tanks with 950 pounds of magnesium sulfate? This concoction, more commonly known as epsom salt, does more than help our customers float effortlessly. For centuries, people have been using it to treat muscle pain, fight fatigue, and even regulate sleep cycles. Epsom salt carries a bevy of benefits, even for the largest organ in your body – your skin. Learn how floatation therapy helps you achieve an inner and outer glow.
Magnesium sulfate is a natural exfoliator that removes dead skin cells and reveals clear, glowing skin underneath. It’s also effective in clearing pores, reducing the number of blackheads. Though its texture helps loosen dead skin, so does its formulation: Magnesium controls oil and boosts skin health. On the flip side, research shows that up to 80% of Americans are deficient in magnesium, so a float session will provide some serious topical benefits!
It Treats Minor Skin Ailments
Acne and rosacea can wreak havoc on your skin and self-confidence. Thankfully, epsom salt can help. The oil-stripping benefits of magnesium will help clear adult acne, but it has other benefits as well: People with histories of eczema and psoriasis also find relief from floating in a tank. Since magnesium is naturally antimicrobial and antibacterial, floating can help keep minor skin irritations clean.
Here’s something else to consider: Most people try floating to reduce stress, and research has shown that flare-ups of eczema and psoriasis are directly correlated with stress levels. Theoretically, regular floating could help prevent further flare-ups.
It Clarifies Your Hair
Let’s not forget the powerful effect of epsom salt on your hair. We toss a lot of things into our tresses in the name of beauty – volumizing products, harsh alcohol-based sprays, and lots of heat. Over time, this can make our hair frizzy, stressed, and tired. Epsom salt works by stripping gunk from the hair and restoring natural shine. As an added bonus, Epsom salt creates more volume and the appearance of thicker hair. After your float, simply let air dry for a tousled, straight-from-the-beach look.
It Nourishes Mind and Body
One of the best things about a float session is that it has both physical and mental benefits that will last for weeks to come. Whether it’s clear, soft, skin, perfect hair, or a relaxed attitude, you’ll emerge from your float feeling beautiful inside and out. For that, you can thank a little thing called sensory deprivation – and 950 pounds of epsom salt.
