Stress, poor diet and digestion, medication, and other external factors can lead to toxins build-up. The heat of the steam room will open approximately 2.6 million sweat glands located under your skin. Just a single session in the steam room could help your body eliminate up to 30 percent of its waste and toxins through sweat.
So what are the benefits of the Steam Room?
Have you ever wondered why your facialist puts a hot, steamy washcloth on your face before poking at your pores? That’s because the warm humidity opens them up and softens the oil and dirt, allowing them to be more easily removed.
Spending time in a steam room can also decrease your body’s production of cortisol—a hormone that regulates the level of stress you feel.
Inhaling moisture can help loosen nasal congestion—so you might feel your stuffy sinuses clear wholly when you enter a steam room.
For some people, sitting in a steam room can clear problem skin that’s clogged or congested, which could prevent pimples from popping up down the line.
Helps workout recovery
You know how you feel fabulous right after a workout, but the following day, your entire body aches. It’s called delayed onset muscle soreness, or DOMS, and sitting in a steam room can help reduce the pain.
