Soaking in hot spring with friends and family, talking about the day, the world and gossip… The pleasure of the warm water embracing your body always brings a real sense of pleasure in the cold winter months.
Tips you need to know before you relax in the hot spring
Soaking in a hot spring is a good way to stay healthy. For example, it eliminates fatigue, relaxes the body and mind, relieves negative emotions... During the process, our body temperature rises with the water, which means that our blood circulation accelerates, which can promote the metabolism; or if you feel muscle fatigue after exercise, the pressure and warmth of the warm water cna make it easier to expel lactic acid from your body, thus having the effect of relieving muscle soreness, etc.
Although hot springs are beneficial for your body, they are not suitable for everyone. People with hyperlipidemia, high blood pressure and hyperglycemia should take extra care and only soak in hot springs if they are stable and under supervision. People with severe eczema, dermatitis and ulcerated skin should not take a bath in hot springs as they may worsen the wounds. Children and pregnant women should not stay in hot springs for too long. Women who are in their periods and those who are allergic to hot springs are not recommended.
There are also some precautions to take when soaking in a hot spring.
· Do not spend too much time in the hot spring and do not take it too often.
·Avoid soaking in the hot spring without eating, being too full, after alcohol, after strenuous exercise or being overly tired.
·Shower after the bath to bring down the high concentration of minerals left on the surface of your body to normal levels.
