After a short initial sweating phase, salt is applied to the body. It is important to leave out the face, genital region and open wounds, as the salt burns in the eyes and irritates mucous membranes.
The peeling effect:
by rubbing the salt, dead skin cells are removed and the blood circulation in the upper layer of the skin is promoted. This promotes skin regeneration.
The salt draws water from the body (1.5 to 2.5 times the amount of a normal sauna), meaning it also has a detoxifying effect.
As an additional care bonus, the salt releases minerals to the skin.
