4 Benefits of Steam Showers

Are you thinking about purchasing a steam shower or adding a steam generator to your existing shower? Continue reading to learn about some benefits of steam showers:

Recover from Exercise – During exercise, metabolic waste is built up in muscles, which causes soreness and fatigue. Combining a steam shower with a cold bath or shower can help flush out this waste. Alternating between the heat of the steam and the cold bath causes a pumping action in the capillaries and rids muscles of the waste. Alternate between one minute of steam and one minute of cold water to initiate the pumping action. Source: Livestrong

Ease a Cold – Pull the plug on your stopped-up schnoz with 15 minutes of steam from your shower, recommends Stacey Tutt Gray, MD, codirector of the Sinus Center at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary. (Shut the bathroom door and let steam build from a hot shower.) It loosens mucus, helping you breathe easier. Close the drain and add eucalyptus essential oil to relieve inflammation. Breathing in the steamy stuff soothes coughs and chest congestion too. Source: Health

Clearer Skin – People who take at least two steam showers a week find that it improves the clarity of their skin over time. Steam has 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. Source: OverStock

Refreshing Rewards – A daily steam shower is one of the most refreshing rewards you can give yourself. Step inside and feel your senses expand. Boundaries soften and disappear. This is the most sensual of beauty rituals: relaxation and rejuvenation, stimulation and exhilaration. Source: MrSteam
