Does a sauna help if you have acne?

KLAFS FAQ for well-being

Acne is a chronic skin disorder in which the skin’s pores become clogged due to increased sebum production. As a result, skin is covered with whiteheads, blackheads and pimples. Although it might not always be advisable to use a public sauna if you have acne, a private sauna is a completely different matter. Here, you can enjoy all the positive effects and health benefits. If you’re about to see a beautician to have pus extracted, for example, having a sauna first to expand your pores can be very beneficial. Above all, sweating in the sauna has an extremely purifying effect. The extreme heat makes sebum more watery, and washes out bacteria, dead cells and dirt particles. This cleanses your skin deep down, making it look and feel much sleeker. In fact, your whole complexion is left looking rosier, fresher and smoother.
