Using your chest as a basis, bathing above the chest is considered a full-body bath and bathing below the chest is considered a partial-bath. Partial bath is suitable for elderly people and children as it is safe and healthy. Full-body bath is suitable for reinvigorating the body but should be kept to a shorter period of time.

泡温泉有两种方式,以胸部为基准,泡到胸部以上的称为全身浸泡,泉水在胸部以下的称为部分浸泡。部分浸泡一般来说比较适合老年人和小孩子,因为比较安全。全身浸泡能使整个身体得到放松,但是不能泡得太久。

06

Constantly wipe away sweat: When bathing, try to wipe away any sweat. After bathing, make sure to wipe all the excess water away to prevent catching a cold.

擦掉身上的汗水:当你泡温泉的时候,尽量擦干每一滴流出的汗水,因为这个时候身体只能通过流汗散热,流汗不擦的话可能导致毛孔堵塞;泡完澡之后,毛孔全部张开,这个时候会大量流汗,要及时擦拭汗水,以免感冒。

Bathing in hot springs for extended periods of times and the more times the better is actually a misconception. Improper bathing times or overly high water temperatures will cause a dramatic depletion in the skin’s water and oil content, leading to itchiness of the skin. If it is your first time in a hot spring, it is best not to stay in there for more than 20 minutes.

泡温泉不是时间越长或者次数越多又或是水温越高越好,非适当的泡温泉的方式可能会导致皮肤表面水和油的成分的流失,进而造成皮肤瘙痒.如果你是第一次泡温泉的话,最好不要在温泉里呆超过20分钟。
