Portable Infrared Sauna: Clothing and Hydration

Knowing how to properly use your portable infrared sauna  is important. This will help avoid mistakes that could cause you harm. There are several things to keep in mind before using a sauna. For starters, you need to remove all your clothes, if possible, and keep yourself hydrated. Here are the reasons why:

Removing Your Clothes

During a sauna session, your body will detoxify. This means that toxins in your body will be released through sweat. It’s crucial to wipe away this toxin-filled sweat, which is why it’s advisable to enter the sauna without clothing. Clothes can trap the toxins instead of releasing them. Worse, your body is also at risk of reabsorbing these toxins, which can be dangerous to your health. Another reason to do it in the nude is to avoid overheating. Your clothes can prevent your sweat from properly cooling your body down through evaporation, which can overheat your body.

Keeping Yourself Hydrated

Dehydration can happen during a sauna session. People often forget to hydrate themselves to compensate for the loss of water in their body through sweat. To avoid this, make sure to drink a glass of water before, during, and after a sauna session. You may even want to bring in a bottle or two with you. A sports electrolyte replacement drink can be an alternative to water, as well as coconut water.

Doing these two things can help you enjoy your sauna experience much better. They can produce more positive results and avoid mistakes that can be harmful to you.
