Infrared rays help undo the damage caused to the skin due to various factors such as age and exposure to heat, UV rays, or dust etc. It penetrates into the skin and improves blood circulation, boosts the elasticity of the skin and evens out the skin tone, thereby giving you flawless skin that is free of fines lines, wrinkles, marks, and scars.
Weight Loss and Detox
Just 30 minutes of radiant yoga will have you sweating buckets. The heat elevates your heart rate and increases the rate of blood flow. The number of calories burnt in the process is equal to those burnt in a session of heavy cardio exercise or running for 2 to 3 miles. Moreover, the excessive sweating along with the increase in body temperature helps flush out toxins from the body and boost the production of white blood cells.
