Light Therapy has been the well kept secret for those who have unlocked the fountain of youth. Its unique ability to rejuvenate skin suffering from fatigue and exhaustion is unrivalled. If you’ve noticed that your skin just isn’t glowing like it used to, then you need to try out light therapy all year round! Here’s why:
It boost hydration and fights wrinkles
When used consistently, light therapy is able to penetrate the skin at different depths to stimulate collagen that will heal damaged skin cells, plump and firm your skin and fight the effects of aging.
Increase blood flow to oxygenate your skin
After a light therapy treatment, blood flow is significantly increased for up to you 72 hours post treatment. In this time the oxygen from the blood rejuvenates the deep layers of your skin that products like moisturisers and retinols sometimes cannot reach.
It helps with acne, eczema, psoriasis and rosacea
If Light Therapy is used by Navy Seals to help heal deep wounds, you can be assured it’s a suitable and effective treatment for skin conditions like acne, eczema, psoriasis and rosacea. The best part about Light Therapy is the absence of harsh chemicals, meaning it is tolerated by a wide variety of different skin types, even sensitive skin!
Can treat seasonal affective disorder
No you’re not the only one who has the winter blues. Yes there is something you can do about it! In the winter when the days are shorter and the sun plays hard to get only showing up every now and then, people’s mood can be significantly affected. Energy levels drop, depression can creep up and so can feelings of anxiety. Light Therapy can help counteract this by penetrating the deep layers of the skin to reset our circadian rhythms – our body’s internal function that controls our metabolism, mood, sleep and feelings of stress.
Increases the absorption of all your skin care products
Okay now if you’re going to invest your money in high quality skincare products you want to be assured that you’re getting the most out of them. Right? You might be surprised to learn that without having regular skin care treatments like Light Therapy, your skin care can only do so much!
So there you have it. The top 5 reasons Light Therapy needs to be your go to treatment all year round!
