8 rules for visiting the bath

Remem­ber, in the pop­u­lar film, the bewil­dered: “Girl, what kind of bath­house? He has a bath­room at home!” But a bath is not only a place where dirt is washed off. In the bath, peo­ple heal from ail­ments, gain strength after hard work, relieve overex­er­tion — phys­i­cal and moral. Bath is the best body cleanser! After the bath, every­thing, even thoughts, becomes clean, clear, pos­i­tive, and the world looks bright and kind.

With the help of bath pro­ce­dures, first of all, the skin is renewed: the stra­tum corneum is exfo­li­at­ed, dirt and fat come out of the depths of the skin along with sweat, clog­ging the pores. The skin begins to breathe, addi­tion­al­ly sup­ply­ing the body with oxy­gen.
Due to the high tem­per­a­ture, blood cir­cu­la­tion in the res­pi­ra­to­ry organs increas­es, which means that the res­pi­ra­to­ry func­tion improves.
Blood, accel­er­at­ing through the ves­sels, improves meta­bol­ic process­es in cells, con­tributes to a more inten­sive absorp­tion of oxy­gen by the tis­sues of all organs, elim­i­nat­ing con­ges­tion.
Bath improves diges­tion, and mas­sage with bath brooms relieves ten­sion and calms the ner­vous sys­tem, relieves psy­cho­log­i­cal stress and over­work. That is why the best time to vis­it the bath is Fri­day or Sat­ur­day, that is, the end of the work­ing week.
After the bath, the num­ber of leuko­cytes in the blood increas­es, which play an impor­tant role in the pro­tec­tive func­tion of the body. There­fore, the bath must be vis­it­ed by peo­ple who do not go in for sports, are lit­tle in the air and move lit­tle.
And of course, the bath is an inte­gral part of the weight loss pro­gram. Thanks to steam and heat, up to a liter of liq­uid leaves the body in one ses­sion.
8 rules for vis­it­ing the bath
1. You can not bathe in the bath after a hearty din­ner, as well as on an emp­ty stom­ach. It is strict­ly for­bid­den to vis­it baths while intox­i­cat­ed. You should also not take alco­hol with you and drink it while relax­ing in the bath.

2. Before enter­ing the steam room, you need to take a show­er or rinse from the basin, wipe your­self dry with a tow­el.
3. Before going to the bath, remove all jew­el­ry — they can become hot and burn the skin. You need to start soar­ing from the bot­tom shelf. First, warm up the body for 10–15 min­utes, exit the steam room and rest for 7–10 min­utes.

4. Do not for­get to take a broom to the Russ­ian bath: birch, oak or a mix of branch­es of these trees with the addi­tion of mead­ow herbs: wil­low-herb, chamomile, mint, St. John’s wort. At the sec­ond entry, you can turn on the heat and dis­perse it with brooms. After that, a good mas­sage with brooms. It is bet­ter if it is done by a spe­cial­ist — a bath­house atten­dant. It is bet­ter to use a wash­cloth made from nat­ur­al mate­ri­als: loofah, lin­den bast, sponge, linen fab­ric.

7. After the steam room, it is advis­able to plunge into cool water (pool, ice hole, final­ly take a cool show­er) and drink some tea.
8. It should be drunk hot after the bath. For a hot, steamed body, this is the most accept­able tem­per­a­ture. Cold drinks will only cre­ate an addi­tion­al bur­den. And nev­er drink beer! It removes flu­id from the body.
