Steam perfectly cleanses the skin, the largest organ of the human body, from bacteria, dust particles, dead epithelial cells and skin secretions, while improving physiological function of the skin. Steam stimulates the basal proliferative and keratin layers of the skin, increases the bactericidal properties, and normalizes the activity of the sebaceous glands. Heat speeds up the chemical processes in the body, making steam and sauna bathing one of the simplest and most comfortable ways to rid the body of accumulated toxins. As the pores open up and the millions of sweat glands start to excrete, the body rids itself of metabolic and other waste products. As a result, the elasticity and tone of the skin increases, water balance is restored and skin is rejuvenated.
Steam sauna trains the cardiovascular system, activates the metabolism, and burns calories that are spent on sweating. Heat softens the connective tissue of muscles and makes them more flexible, by this tension in the muscles melts and the lactic acid – a byproduct of intense exercises, is eliminated.
