Health benefits of a steam shower

How amazing would it be to have a steam shower in the comforts of your own home? No longer will you have to awkwardly sit in a room with other strangers as you try to relax and sweat your stress away. And besides, a steam shower has such great health benefits as well.

According to DrGranny.com, relaxing in a steam shower increases your antibody production, and in the process, improves your overall immune system. Additionally, a steam shower allows you to sweat off the many toxins in your body.

For the skin, the steam that emanates from the shower opens up your pores and helps remove excess oil as well as dirt that accumulates on your epidermis. This is probably why people who frequent saunas step out with glowing skin.

If your muscles and bones are in pain from intense physical activity, there's no better place to be than in a relaxing steam shower. The news source also mentions how the heat and steam can dilate blood vessels, increasing overall blood circulation to relieve you from any aches and pains that you may be feeling.
