So, you’re considering moving to Arizona and not sure the dry heat is for you? Do you prefer a dry sauna to a wet sauna? Now really, hot, is hot. The difference in our Arizona dry heat is that your body naturally regulates it’s temperature by the sweat that evaporates from your body. In the more humid climates, although the temperature may be lower, it feels hotter because the higher concentration of water in the air condenses on your skin which doesn’t allow your sweat to cool you down and therefore causes you to feel warmer. Drink lots of water in Arizona.
