Although the answer may be obvious, it is important to know what to wear in an Infrared Sauna. Or more importantly, what not to wear.
In Finland the traditional home of the sauna and in Europe it is very common for everyone to go nude in saunas, even in public so worrying about what to wear in in infrared sauna is not of any concern.
In Australia however, men usually wear swimmers, boxer shorts or a towel wrapped around their waist.
Women commonly choose workout shorts with a tank top or sports bra. It's worth noting that whether you decide to go nude or wear the recommended clothing, it won't impact the effectiveness of your sauna session. The choice is entirely based on your personal comfort and preference.
Of course if you have a sauna in the comfort of your own home then what to wear in a sauna is entirely as you choose. Birthday suit or wetsuit. Your choice. In saying that, whatever you wear, make sure to always have a towel under your body and feet. As the sweating is intense and you'll want top keep your sauna clean at all times.
To get the most out of your sauna sessions, it is recommended to wear minimal clothing to allow the heat to directly penetrate your body.
If you prefer to wear clothes, opt for lightweight and breathable garments made of natural fibres like cotton.
Avoid synthetic materials that can trap sweat and hinder proper airflow.
Bringing a towel to sit on and another one for drying off post-session is a good practice as the towel you using for sitting on will most likely be dripping in sweat by the end of your session.
Remove Your Jewellery
Before entering the sauna, it's advisable to remove all jewellery, watches, and metal accessories as they can become hot and uncomfortable.
Similarly, it's best to remove any makeup to prevent clogged pores and interference with normal perspiration.
By following these guidelines, you can optimise your infrared sauna experience and promote the natural detoxification and relaxation benefits it offers.
