How Long Should a Person Stay in a Steam Room?

It is normally advised to use a steam room or sauna for no more than 15 minutes, since it uses dry heat and has less moisture in the air, which can result in mild dehydration. Although steam rooms are very beneficial for those who have acne-prone skin, they should be used with caution.

It is advisable to step out of the steam room after 10 minutes, cool off, rehydrate by drinking water, and return for another "inning." They normally give users the option to set a desired temperature and humidity level. When the user feels uncomfortable, he or she should leave the room to cool off.
