Infrared light is NOT ultraviolet light… in fact, it has an opposite effect of UV. It diminishes fine lines and wrinkles. It’s the healthy light that allows plants to photosynthesize, or make energy to sustain and grow. Infrared light rays heat you from the inside… it’s a deep penetrating heat that warms you, and not just the surrounding air. It’s the ultimate detox.
