Some Benefits

Clearer skin – People who take at least two steam showers a week find that it improves the clarity of their skin over time. Steam showers have the ability to unclog pores and remove deeply trapped congestion from under the surface of the skin. Here’s how it works: Steam causes increased perspiration, which can push trapped dirt, dead skin cells and surface bacteria out from the upper dermal layers where it can then be washed away easily. The results of regular steam showers are seen in long-term clear skin that is free from blackheads, pimples and congestion bumps.

Infection treatment – A major benefit of regular steam showers is relief from respiratory infections. Specialists list steam showers as an at-home remedy for conditions such as sinus infections. The warm, wet heat opens airways and soothes inflammation in the lungs and nasal cavity, increasing your comfort as well as helping to shorten the duration of the infection.

Increased circulation – Steam showers are an excellent way to naturally boost circulation throughout the body. Increased circulation brings more oxygen to cells and decreases the risk of hypertension, hardened arteries and muscle function. Increased circulation also means more blood flowing through the heart, which helps combat fatigue and exhaustion.

Stress relief – One of the most powerful benefits of steam showers is their ability to reduce both physical and mental stress. While stress can cause people to feel anxious, wired and overworked, it can also manifest itself as sore or tense muscles. By increasing blood circulation, steam showers expand muscle tissue and release tightness. The warm air also helps release endorphins in the brain, which relaxes the mind and relieves mental tension.
