Every health-conscious city dweller always wants that quick and easy way to shed a few pounds or cleanse themselves of toxins. In NYC, a company called HigherDose, started by the duo of health expert Lauren Berlingeri and Katie Kaps, makes use of infrared blankets to help people sweat it out just by chilling out.
Since the start of the pandemic, their NYC locations have been shuttered for the time being, but this hasn’t stopped business from booming. Right before the pandemic took hold in March, HigherDose gave the option for spa goers to buy one of these blankets for themselves and use at home. It turned out to be a great move, considering the store sold out of them nearly immediately.
Now, after months of anticipation, these detox wrappers are back in stock for people itching for some new additions to the wellness routine, people looking to lose that quarantine 15, and eager travelers who need help winding down while in flight. These infrared blankets, which not only help you sweat out the unwanted stuff in your body, are also great for improving your mood and giving your skin a shiny sheen.
Even before the pandemic, air travel can make those who aren’t used to it a bit nervous to say the least. These days, being in a tight indoor space with an infectious disease going around can only double those concerns.
They may look big, but these 19 pound blankets can easily fold up for storage in your carry-on and, once you’re in the air, wrap yourself up in it and experience calm and serenity as you fly to your long-awaited vacation spot. It’s also great if you want to still sweat a bit while on vacation, but you still don’t trust the hotel gym.
