Mary Ann carbonic bath
When taking this style of bath, the body becomes enveloped in fine beads of the gas. After an initial feeling of coldness, this layer of beads induces a pleasantly warm sensation caused by dilatation of the capillaries of the skin. As the carbon dioxide is absorbed by the skin, the peripheral vessels are opened up, boosting the circulation of blood, mainly in the extremities and the skin. This not only helps reduce blood pressure and enhance the function of the heart, but also supports nourishment, elasticity and hydration of the skin.
