    Shaving in the Sauna: What You Need to Know

    By SEO Team December 04, 2020

    If you’ve ever wondered whether it’s okay to shave in a sauna, we’re here to tell you that it’s not a good idea. Here’s all you need to know about why you shouldn’t shave in a sauna—save it for after!

    Diluted blood vessels

    The heat from saunas causes a person’s core temperature to increase. This leads to a faster heart rate, thereby making the heart pump more blood through the arteries and veins.

    Increased blood flow dilates the blood vessels, and they become thinner and more elastic. If you’re shaving in a sauna, the risk of cutting yourself with the razor is quite high. Nicking a diluted blood vessel will cause large amounts of blood to pour out, and could result in a serious injury.

    Risk of contaminated blood

    If people were allowed to shave in a sauna, the chances of coming into contact with someone’s blood would increase.

    Blood carries many diseases, and coming into contact with someone’s contaminated blood could cause many life-threatening diseases such as HIV, malaria, etc.

    Unhygienic and unattractive

    Imagine going into a sauna for a relaxing session and seeing someone’s hair littering the floor. Not only would this make you feel uneasy, but it's also unhygienic.
    Saunas are meant to be comfortable experiences that reduce stress and relieve pain. Having a dirty floor with detritus pricking the soles of our bare feet would ruin the whole atmosphere and leave you feeling grimy and unclean.

    There is also a danger that someone could slip in leftover shaving foam/cream, as it’s usually slick. Mixing a room full of steam and an already slippery floor with another slick compound could prove to be very harmful.

    Shave after a sauna

    The best time to shave is after a sauna. The hair and skin are humidified from the heat of the sauna, making the razor glide more smoothly and evenly over the surface of the skin. As the skin is already moisturized and soft, you’ll also need less shaving cream or gel compared to before.

    If you’re tired of someone at your local gym, leaving their shaving waste on the floor of the sauna, consider investing in a home sauna for your use. USA Health and Wellness offers many home saunas online, and you can view all our products here.

    Finally, Just the Spa that We Ordered

    After weeks of delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic interruption of the supply chain, the 6 person American spa (hot tub) that we ordered was finally delivered, in perfect condition. The terms of purchase went smoothly, and the price was reasonably good for the quality and size of the spa. Ample instructions were provided to prepare for the spa arrival. Although some spa companies provide complimentary "start-up kits" with chemicals and water testing tools, which makes set-up quicker and easier, none came with this spa. The biggest surprise is how much site preparation for the spa ended up costing -- about as much as the cost of the spa itself. There are lots of hot tub vendors and YouTube videos out there to guide a new spa owner, almost all have a monetary interest in getting you to buy their products. USA Health and Wellness are nice people, who could strengthen their brand if they bolstered their guidance for spa set-up and maintenance.

    Love the sauna

    Perhaps could have personally used a 3 person sauna instead of two.... the light remote is a little cheap.... but the sauna is wonderful!
