DailyCandy today featured the FAR Infrared SlimDone Sauna Treatment currently being offered at PureSkin of Chevy Chase. The treatment exposes the body to FAR infrared heat, which penetrates 1.5 to 2 inches deep below the skin. This makes the body sweat at temperatures of 110 – 140 F, producing 2-3 times the volume of sweat and eliminating 3 to 5 times more toxins than in a regular sauna. Now why would anyone want to subject themselves to this? Well, because during the 40 minutes of relaxing, sauna-like bliss you can shed up to 600 calories. Forget wasting your time running in place, or lifting those dumbbells! Just hop in this machine, and you can sweat those tiresome lbs. away, right? Ha! Not so fast. After paying (price still undermined as PureSkin didn’t answer when I called) you may be physically “lighter” and toxin free, but you’ve still got to hit the gym to improve your strength, agility, balance and flexibility. So if you’ve got the extra moolah to spare, I say go for it! Why not treat yourself?!! And for the rest of us who can barely afford our gym memberships, well…keep up the good work!
I really wouldn’t have thought that Daily Candy could more thinly disguise that they’re nothing more than paid advertising, but in the last few months it’s become even worse. Crap like this may be the absolute bottom but perhaps they can lower themselves even further in some new and interesting way.
