#FastFact saunas dehydrate your skin

#FastFact going into the sauna has many health benefits as detoxifying your body, reducing stress levels and easing pain. Yet, you have to treat your skin well when using one as it aggressively dehydrates it. Saunas can raise the temperature of your skin to about 40° Celsius or 104° Fahrenheit. As your skin heat rises, it activates and detoxes it through sweat. However, this perspiration also draws water and natural oils from the skin causing dehydration. Hence, before going into a sauna, moisturizing your full body right before is necessary. It is also highly recommended to reapply a moisturizer after going into the sauna. Best is to apply it right after the shower on your damp skin. Drinking plenty of water before and after the sauna is also highly recommended.
