It is very common to see hot springs that are more than 40°C, but generally, a hot bath is not good for the body. The body temperature is about 36°C and the temperature inside the body is about 37°C. It is recommended to start at 38°C to avoid using too much energy when taking a bath. Although it will feel tepid after a couple of minutes, it is better to start with 39°C in summer and 40°C in winter. A splash of cold water on your body after a bath allows skin pores to shut and helps to maintain body temperature.
Cold water is not good for the heart, but at around 30°C should be fine. As you get used to it, you can use colder water. If you don’t feel comfortable with cold water, you can wipe yourself with a wet towel. In any case, your body should be sufficiently warm when splashing water. If you splash yourself with water when your body is not warm enough, your body will get cold…BE CAREFUL!
Some people say that they don’t feel like their body is warmed up if they don’t take a very hot bath. Looking back at why some people like a very hot bath, it seems that the cause is the coldness of their body. For people who are working in an air-conditioned room all day, or want to eat something cold all day, it is very hard to warm up their body temperature because the surface of the skin is very cold. Since their body needs to take heat from the hot bath, which is why they prefer a very hot bath. In cases like such, we tend to think that it is necessary to take a hot bath, and this can’t be helped in order to warm up our body. However, a warm bath is usually good enough to open the skin and allows your body to warm up quicker than you think. In contrast, a hot bath will cause the skin pores to close tightly, and you will end up staying in the bathtub longer. This is one of the ways you create causes of body exhaustion. We advise you to gradually decrease the temperature of the bath so that you can give yourself some time to get used to the warm bath.
