What to do when you love soaking in your hot tub, but you are tired of living with extremely dry skin?
For many hot tub owners, there is something truly therapeutic about starting or ending the day with a hot tub soak. For some reason, the soothing waters have a way of making our troubles disappear. Good bye tension, sore muscles, pain from arthritis and stress… hello, dry skin.
That’s right. For those who soak on a regular basis, especially during a harsh Canadian winter, the skin takes a beating thanks to sanitization chemicals and the hot water. Having said this, there is a solution – thalassotherapy.
Thalassotherapy comes from the Greek thalasso meaning ‘sea’ and therapia meaning ‘treatment’. It is a treatment that uses the beneficial and healing properties of the seawater and marine products to improve health and wellbeing. One of the most highly regarded benefits is the improvement to the pores of the skin.
According to historical documents, the Ancient Egyptian papyruses from 1600 B.C. provide recipes for a range of medicinal treatments using salt, particularly in anti-infectives. The ancient Greeks used it for similar purposes, and already knew – more than 2,000 years ago – that it had anti-inflammatory effects. In fact, it is documented that Hippocrates noted that fishermen healed quickly and were prone to less infections when they soaked their hands in salt water.
Wisdom of the Ages
ControlOMatic saltwater chlorine generators are a perfect example of how modern day technology is using ancient wisdom. Products like the SmarterSpa and the ChlorMaker provide breakthrough sanitization for hot tubs. By using salt generated chlorine, the common skin itching, scaling and excess dryness is a thing of the past. Instead, the skin is able to retain normally lost moisture. Something every Canadian who is tired of fighting dry skin will appreciate.
