No. You can float for hours and never get cold or prune. The Epsom salt or magnesium sulfate acts as a regulator for water and inhibits the water from saturating in the skin. Epsom salts do not have the same drying effects on the skin as the salt we cook with. Although the salts do remove oils from the surface layer of the skin, it draws oils from the layers beneath which creates baby-soft skin.

Many first time floaters experience the true benefits of floating after their first float but really notice the feeling and difference floating can make after 2-3 session.
