Which one is better for you, wet sauna or dry sauna?
Regarding the way heat affects the body, dry saunas offer better results. That's because with hot and dry temperatures, the body can be penetrated more efficiently. While wet saunas do produce great results, the combination of moisture and sweating has a cooling effect on the body.
What kind of sauna is the healthiest?
Infrared saunas provide a milder temperature environment—between 120 and 150 degrees Fahrenheit. Additionally, the light of infrared saunas can penetrate deeper into the body, which means they produce more intense sweat, albeit at a lower (and more comfortable) temperature.
Do you need to get naked in an infrared sauna?
You can be naked or clothed in an infrared sauna. Men usually wear sweatpants or swim trunks; women usually wear sweatpants and a tank top or sports bra. Being naked and wearing this body wrap will not change the effect of your sauna session.
Do you take a shower after the sauna?
Cooling down after a sauna is important because if you sweat too much, you may catch a cold. Sauna enthusiasts should allow enough time to cool down before warming up again. If you can, don't shower immediately after the sauna. It's better for your body if you cool down in fresh air first.
