The new situation requires activation of system functions for thermoregulation: skin pores expand to emit heat to the outside, and the body begins to sweat because  water vapor lowers body temperature and leads body to thermal equilibrium. During the transition that follows (air bathroom and shower) organism is forced to re-adapt in the short term to the cooler atmosphere which is why the skin and capillaries constrict to avoid losing heat to outside conditions. Changes from warm to cold and vice versa represent the basis of the sauna and It has its significance, as this leads to the proper activation of the metabolism, strengthen the system of thermoregulation and efficient purification of the body.
