Using a sauna is a simple way to detox your body on a regular basis, however if the experience is not relaxing and refreshing, you may be doing it wrong! Here are a few tips to get you on the right track for your sauna:

    1. Water Water Water – Water is your best friend for saunas. Your body must be completely (even overly) hydrated in order to sweat out the toxins. Rule of thumb: about 3 pints of water in the hour before, during and after sauna use.
    2. No lotion – You want your skin to be as clear and open as possible to enable your sweating. Lotions can muck up your pores and hinder the detoxing.

  1. The less clothes, the better! – Wearing minimal clothing will allow all of your skin access to the heat and the act of perspiring. Bathing suits are a great option for a communal sauna.

Use these tips before or after you exercise to contribute to your overall health and enhance your workout!
