Is a wet sauna better or a dry sauna?

Sauna is divided into dry steam and wet steam, the difference is as follows:

Dry steaming is the direct conversion of electrical energy into heat energy using a device similar to an electric stove for making a hot pot. Wet steaming uses electricity to boil water to generate steam, which is then sprayed through pipes.

The temperature of dry steaming is higher than that of wet steaming, which can reach about 100 °C. The wet steaming temperature is generally controlled at 40℃-50℃.
