Detoxification of the soul starts with detoxification of the body. Sweating is our body’s natural reaction to temperature changes. But sweat also does flushes away all the junk from our body, as you ever noticed if you experienced flu or else. You lie there with fever, thinking this is the worst day of your life, and your sweat will stain white bed sheets yellow. The darker the yellow – the more toxins your body has.

You should always resume the amount of water that you lose in the steaming room, while not doing so can lead you to dehydration. Also try to use some help in the sauna like sea salt with oils, sugar scrubs, masks or even raw honey. You will be amazed how much better your normal beauty remedies will work in combination with sauna.
Sauna can actually help you with detox, if you use it as a part of therapy. A lot of different remedies together work a lot better than just one. Sauna also reduces stress, acne and insomnia and can be you best friend when it comes to relaxation.
