Why cooling is so important:
Good circulation makes the body stronger. A healthy blood circulation system is crucial. To get more energy, for example, and to warm up better. But that's not all! Your circulation is the means of transporting all those much-needed vitamins, minerals, proteins, sugars and fats to the right places in your body. In additionn, a healthy blood flow also ensures the removal of waste products and the supply of hormones and oxygen. We could go on like this... In other words, you want to make sure your circulation is in a very good shape. Sweating in the sauna widens your blood vessels. Then, when you cool them down enough, they contrict again. This temperature change will make your blood flow faster and train your blood vessels. If you do this regularly, you will eventually notice that your body is more resistant to ailments such as colds and you will generally feel stronger and more resilient.
Your pores close up nicely. When you're in the sauna, your pores open wide through perspiration. That's good, because it allows you to get rid of all the waste products. When you leave the sauna, it's important that you make sure your pores close again. If you don't , you are more vulnerable to bacteria
It prevents headaches. You go to the sauna to completely relax and clear your head. So it would be a shame if you suddenly get a splitting headache that evening. If you suffer from a headache after visiting the sauna, this is usually due to an excessively high blood pressure. And this is due to insufficient cooling after the sauna. That cold shower ensures that your blood pressure goed down, which reduces the risk of a headache.
