It is recommended to drink at least 16-20 ounces of water before going into the sauna. Because you lose this moisture when you do a sauna. Avoid sugary drinks, sodas, and coffee. During an average steam session, bathers see about a 2% drop in body fluids.
Sauna helps the body flush out toxins from the body through sweat. But when you're sitting in the sauna, brush yourself gently, especially on your belly, legs, back, and arms. Doing this will irritate your pores and open up more of them.
After your sauna, take a cold shower to wash away dirt and toxins from the surface of your skin. Cold water can close the pores that you opened during the sauna. Cold showers also help pull blood back to the core organs, which are necessary for their function. To increase the benefits of the sauna, it is also highly recommended that you increase the number of showers, alternating back and forth from the sauna to the shower. This is great for boosting your immune system.
