Is sauna good for your skin?
Yes, It is! Sauna is one of the oldest and best ways to detox your whole body at once. However, between dry saunas and steam rooms, dry saunas are best for you. Most of the steam rooms saunas, (especially in public's swimming pools uses the swimming pool water connect to the steam room, that means the fluorine use to treat the swimming pool's water will get heat in the steam room and this meant the you will be breathing the toxic air inside (as fluorine becomes poisoning if heat). Another down point of steam rooms are the fact that temperature doesn't get so high to kill fungus and bacteria in the room where you will be taking sauna breathing or touching such thing.
In the USA most of the swimming pools are treated with ozone which makes a steam room safe as sauna but, this is not the case in the UK. Dry sauna are hotter but more efficient way to detox your skin.
