HOW TO STEAM PROPERLY IN A SAUNA?
Warming up has a beneficial effect on the state of organs and systems of the body, increases metabolism, calms the nervous system, restores vigor, increases mental abilities and immunity of the body. It has long been known that the sauna has a therapeutic and Wellness effect. However, many people think that everything is simple: go to the steam room and sit as long as possible. This simplicity attracts many people, which is not quite correct. To achieve this goal (for example, to increase the immune system or lose weight), you need to know how to steam properly in a sauna. If you are healthy, you can not limit the number of visits. Visit the sauna as much as you want, decide everything individually. Do not forget to only moisturize the skin after the procedure, applying a cream or moisturizing lotion, so that it does not dry out, or you can use our procedures from Sparelax.
UNIVERSAL RULES IN THE RUSSIAN BATH:
before entering the steam room, you need to protect your hair, especially wet ones. To do this, wear a special bath cap or wrap your hair with a towel;
to avoid overheating, it is recommended to stay in the steam room three times for 5 minutes with 20-minute breaks; do not stay in the steam room for more than 10 minutes — this threatens to overheat the body and heat stroke;
when leaving the steam room, take a shower every time to clean the skin from the products of the sebaceous and sweat glands, that is, to prepare it for further steaming.
Sauna temperature: the sauna is characterized by a temperature of up to 130 degrees. This heat is transferred more easily due to the low humidity of the air — 10-20%. The person is actively sweating.
Rules for taking a sauna: before the sauna, you must take a shower, but be sure to dry yourself with a towel, do not wet your head, your hair must be dry, in order to avoid overheating of the head. In a sauna (unlike a bath), water is not splashed on the heater, as this can lead to a burn with superheated steam. In the sauna, sit or lie, warm up and sweat. The first approach is a warm — up (3-4 minutes), then you need to leave the steam room and take a cool shower (18 degrees), then you need to take a short rest and make a second approach, but for 10-15 minutes. The body is steaming, and after the second set, you can take a cooler shower and again take a short break (20-30 minutes). Next, you can repeat the sessions again. You can make as many calls as you want! However, the entire sauna session should not last more than three hours! At the end of the procedure, you need to take a shower again and wash your hair. Since our body loses water during the sauna session and our skin becomes dry, after taking a shower, be sure to use a moisturizing lotion or body milk. Clothes should be put on only after you have cooled down.
