Hot Tub Swimwear Is a Must
Having swimming gear that you only use in the hot tub is extremely important, especially if you are someone that spends a lot of time swimming in oceans or lakes with your bathing suit.
A bathing suit used in these bodies of water can carry out minerals and biological agents, which won't necessarily mix well with the water that is in your hot tub.
If you wear your swimsuit to the beach and apply sunscreen while you're there, your swimsuit might accumulate that sunscreen. Compromising the water in your hot tub with lotion or sunscreen can be bad for the water and the internal components.
Consider Fabric Durability
Your spa water is likely filled with chemicals, including bromine or chlorine, which can damage your swimsuits during hot tub use. You might be someone who likes wearing expensive swimsuits. We highly recommend leaving them for other situations, such as sunbathing at the beach.
You might consider getting wearing a suit that is made for durability. These types of suits are typically made out of tougher and cheaper materials, such as nylon.
Always Rinse Your Suit With Fresh Water
No matter what you decide to put on in your hot tub, you want to rinse it off with fresh water before you step inside. You might even consider asking your family and friends if they can rinse off before they take a dip in the spa as well.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I Use My Hot Tub While Nude?
Because your spa is very similar to a bath, it is completely fine to use it in the nude. Of course, if your hot tub is out in the open or it doesn't belong to you, you may want to consider throwing on a bikini or a pair of trunks.
Of course, the beauty of soaking nude is that you can get much deeper into a sense of relaxation without having to worry about your suit getting in the way.
How To Dress For Hot Tub Use In The Winter
You might live in a cold region where the winters get rough. Having the right clothing for using your hot tub during not-so-warm weather is crucial for having the best time.
You might consider getting a beanie to keep on your head while kicking back in the spa, as it can keep your head and ears warm while you're soaking, all while keeping your hair dry.
We also recommend getting yourself some sandals that you can keep nearby so that you don't have to step on the cold ground with your bare feet when you get out of the spa. This is especially true if you live in a region with lots of snow or moisture on the ground.
Lastly, we recommend using moisturizer on your face before getting in the spa, as cold winds during the winter months can dry out your face. Plus, spa-friendly moisturizers create barriers between your skin and the harmful chemicals in your spa.
How To Find The Right Suit For My Hot Tub
Of course, when all is said and done, the last thing you want is to feel uncomfortable when you're in your hot tub. Guys often use shorts of some sort while girls will often use bikinis or a one-piece. What you choose to put on might also depend on if you're having guests over for a hot tub party. Of course, if that decision compromises your comfort in any way because you're afraid to put on a proper suit, then you might want to reconsider that get-together.
