How to Cool Off After the Sauna

Saunas are a fantastic way to unwind, relax muscles, and detoxify your body. However, the intense heat can leave you feeling overly warm once your session is over. Cooling off properly is crucial to restoring your body to a comfortable temperature and nervous system tone to reap the full benefits of your sauna experience. Here are some effective ways to cool off after your sauna session, including a special tip on using a cooling facial mist to enhance your refreshment and promote a glowing complexion.

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

Saunas make you sweat profusely, leading to significant fluid loss. Replenishing your body with water is essential to avoid dehydration. Drink plenty of cool water immediately after your session.

For an extra boost, opt for electrolyte-infused beverages to restore essential minerals lost through sweat. We have a nice selection for sale near the front desk!

One of the most effective ways to cool off is to take a cool shower or cold plunge. The water helps to lower your body temperature quickly and rinse off the sweat. Start with lukewarm water and gradually decrease the temperature to avoid a sudden shock.

If available, a cold plunge offers an even more intense cooling experience, quickly reducing your core temperature and invigorating your senses.
