Most of us have heard of the floatation tank (also known as a sensory deprivation tank) and how good it is for a variety of ailments both mentally and physically. However, there are not many people who know about how these isolation tanks can be beneficial as a beauty treatment. Believe it or not, these tanks can do wonders for how one looks. From reducing wrinkles, to toning skin, right up to leaving your skin soft, supple and radiant, the floatation tank may just be the best thing that has happened to any of us.
So how do these tanks actually reduce wrinkles, the answer is actually quite simple as most of us already know that the isolation or floatation tank just happens to be one of the most effective stress busters, yet everybody also knows that stress is one of the culprits behind wrinkles and dull skin, thus when we put two and two together, what we end up with lesser wrinkles. Another factor that makes these tanks an intimate personal beautician is the fact that it basically puts people in a better mood and people who are in good moods are naturally more attractive than people who are on average moods – you do not need to be a genius to figure that one out.
There is also another big secret of how these tanks give people who use them much better skin complexion. For those of you who are not very familiar of how these floatation tanks work with regards to how people remain afloat in the tank without sinking, ‘there is something in the water’ – Epsom salt. The Epsom salt is the reason why individuals floating in the isolation tank do not sink, due to the high content of Epsom salt that unlike what you find in the sea, Epsom salt actually hydrates the skin and while these individuals float, the magnesium and sulphate is absorbed by the skin and this is an added benefit that improves a variety of other internal body functions which include the hardening of arteries.
Skin exfoliation is yet another process that occurs within a floatation tank as you float as the gentle caresses of the Epson solution exfoliates the skin very slowly and gently, thus, in other words, the water in the tank exfoliates, cleanses and hydrates the skin externally, while it fixes your mood internally so you are left feeling happier and stress free, which as mentioned earlier prevents wrinkles and makes you a much more attractive, not to mention radiant person.
So, looking at all these facts, it seems that the sensory deprivation tank has come full circle, from being a disease busting, stress reliving, mood enhancing apparatus to a ‘all in one’ beauty parlour where you do not have to deal with the incessant chattering of the beautician.
