Why Floating Should Be Part of Your Beauty and Skincare Routine

Many of us do so much to achieve beautiful skin. Bottles of cleansers, moisturisers, serums, etc., clutter our bathroom counters, from designer brands to eco-friendly hauls.

But what if the secret to better skin was a simple as floating in water?

While you should continue with your skincare routine, consider floating therapy to amp up the results.


Gently Removes Dead Skin Cells

When dead skin cells accumulate, they create a dull and blemished surfaced. While these dead cells are naturally shed off, the turnover rate is sometimes delayed. There are numerous exfoliating products out there; however, some of them may trigger breakout or cause redness.

“The Epson salt (magnesium sulphate) in the float tank can gently loosen the dead layer. It can also soften oil and debris that have settled within the pores, preventing whiteheads and blackheads.”, shares Karina Wolfin, CEO of Direct Appliance Rentals. Wolfin also spearheaded DAR’s employee wellness program and has encouraged the use of various relaxation methods to improve skin health and boost confidence.

Promotes Skin Regeneration and Repair

Magnesium may not be as popular as vitamin C or probiotics, but this mineral is crucial for overall health.  We need to get enough magnesium daily because it plays a role in over 300 enzymatic reactions within the human body.

One of magnesium’s critical roles in protecting the skin from external damage by regulating cellular repair and regeneration. Take note that free radicals attack your skin from stress, pollution, junk food, etc. Exposure to UV light also cause wrinkles, dehydration, and uneven tone. 

Your skin needs all the help it can get—including that magnesium from floating therapy.

Eases Minor Skin Issues


According to a survey, the number of adult Australians suffering from acne has hit a record high. 

Acne is a common skin problem that can harm one’s self-esteem. While it is widely studied and has numerous available treatments, the results may still vary. Some people respond to antibiotics and light therapy, while others require more intensive medication. Before finding the best acne treatment for you, it has already caused scarring—while you’ll also try to repair it.

Thankfully, Epsom salt can gently strip away oil to prevent dirt and debris from clogging the pores. Its antimicrobial property also helps prevent skin inflammation.


Lowers Cortisol Levels

Your 10-step skincare routine isn’t enough without stress management. According to a 2018 study, 23.8% of the high-stressed respondents had acne. This only affirms the 2014 study that linked stress to various skin problems such as erythema, atopic dermatitis, and Pruritus.

Floating therapy offers a chance to put your mind and body at ease. In this therapy, you’ll be placed inside a sensory deprivation tank filled with salt so that even floating will be effortless for you by reducing external stimuli (touch, sound, and light). As a result, you become more relaxed and more focused.

When people talk about skincare, they usually discuss moisturisers, serums, oils, etc. Floating is rarely mentioned when it is capable of a holistic approach towards more beautiful skin. Visit The Float Space now to find out more.
