Speaking of Scandinavian welfare

Scandinavian welfare
 At this time of year when the days are becoming shorter and temperatures take their winter values, I like to think of Nordic atmospheres conducive to well-being.

The bathroom is particularly suited to this exercise.
Let's start with this beautiful wooden bathtub that offers Cocktail Scandinavian.
 Its very aesthetic line, his head inside and his seat, and is the home from Scandinavia.
 Note that the wood retains heat more water than conventional bathtubs.

 Did you know that the bathrooms do not have a Finnish shower tray and doors as we know it in France?
 One thing he is most often an open space, the floor of the bathroom is designed in a gentle slope to allow drainage.
 A good idea to remember for small housing.
 Speaking of Scandinavian welfare not to mention a sauna would be heresy!

 Even if you have limited space you can fully consider installing a home sauna.
 Some models Infrared take no more space than a shower.
 I still prefer the classic models like the model in terms of health-forme.com

An alternative may be to opt for a combination shower-sauna steam room that also.
 These models integrate more easily into the bathroom standard size and can enjoy all the benefits of sauna.

How to practice the sauna?
 The sauna is for healthy people.
 It is practiced at a temperature between 75 and 95 °.
 The pace is: hot shower, dry sauna, cool shower, drying off and start again.

The sauna is practiced bare to facilitate evaporation of sweat. For hygiene and ease of maintenance, always spread a towel on the bench for sitting down

 Start by taking a hot shower to relax, you dry before entering the sauna room.
 The first passage in the cabin takes a dozen minutes. To acclimatize to heat initially install on the bench at the bottom (sitting or lying).
 Do not Throw away the water on the stones that once started sweating.
 Take a cool shower or cold
 Drink plenty between passages in the cabin to compensate for the loss of body water due to perspiration and evaporation.
 In the second pass you can increase the temperature a bit by throwing water on the stones.
 It is up to 3 passages, each time increasing the duration of rest between passages in the cabin.
 Finally it is important to rinse with cold water, dry off and apply a moisturizer or oils on the skin. And now, to rest at least 20 minutes by drinking water ...

What causes the benefits of the sauna?
 To allow the body to withstand the heat of the sauna, the brain triggers a physiological process called thermolysis, which aims to keep its body temperature of 37 °.
 The sauna helps to eliminate muscle tension, relieve stress it calms the nerves. It removes toxins and cleanses the skin. It helps to remove fatigue!

Did you know: in Finland, there are over 2 million saunas (public and private) for a population of 5.2 million!
 Here's a model!
