You may know that steam showers are trending in bathroom remodeling, but you may have not known how effective steam showers are at cleansing the skin. In fact, there is a long list of health benefits derived from showering with steam.

Steam showers in the home provide a form of steamtherapy. Modern steam shower units come in many dimensions so you can install one in almost any bathroom. Steam generators also use less water than the average shower. Two gallons of water fuels steam for twenty minutes!

Bathing with steam cleanses the skin by making the body sweat in an environment with high humidity. As a result, the body is cleaned better than with a normal shower. First of all, the steam completely covers your body. In a normal shower, only the areas hit by the shower head are cleansed.

The process of sweating releases toxins, dirt and bacteria from the body. This deeply cleanses the skin and empties the pores. This treats blemishes and acne. The skin looks better and the skin tone looks better after a steam shower. It’s also believed that bathing with steam reduces the appearance of cellulite.

Steam showers also improve the body’s circulation. As the blood travels around the body, more oxygen and nutrients are delivered to the organs, muscles and skin. This is good for the entire body and the appearance of skin.

Steamtherapy also boosts the immune system. The heat creates an artificial fever, which signals to the body that it needs to kick start immunity to fight an infection or an illness. The body swings into a defensive mode and produces more white cells to fight infection. This will also help your body fight skin problems.

Making the skin look good isn’t the only health benefit of bathing with steam. It’s also believed that steamtherapy boosts the metabolism and helps in weight loss. Steamtherapy also treats pain by increasing blood circulation to sore and tired muscles. Steam also opens up the respiratory system’s air passages, decreases the amount of mucus in the body and makes it easier to breathe. This is a great treatment for allergies, a cold, the flu, asthma, bronchitis and more.

Steam showers are also a great retreat for when you need deep relaxation. Taking a shower with steam is more relaxing than taking a regular shower; furthermore, modern steam shower units make it possible to shower with your favorite music playing, with essential oils placed in aromatherapy systems and with chromatherapy lighting.

Review this list of ways to relax and try to incorporate one or two into your daily routine. You can even rotate relaxing activities throughout the week.


  1. Eating well. Our bodies are machines and it’s important to give them the right fuel. Have you noticed how sometimes certain foods make you feel horrible? Pay attention to how food makes you feel, and put food in your body that makes you feel good.
  2. Practice breathing exercises. Taking deep and slow breathes will help you practice mindfulness and help you calm down. Practicing your breathing will also help you during meditation and yoga.
  3. Rub your feet. You can rub your feet on a tennis ball to give yourself a foot massage. You may recognize this from yoga class.
  4. Journal. Sometimes writing out your feelings is just the thing you need to get them off your chest. You can write a letter to someone you’re upset with and without ever having to show it to them.
  5. Adopt a pet. A pet can ease loneliness and provide stress relief. Petting a cat or dog will lower your blood pressure and give you a special relationship with someone who will love you unconditionally.
  6. Get in the sun. Many of us don’t get enough sunlight. We wake up, go to work and go home without sitting outside. This can mess with our internal clock. Get some time in the sun to help your sleep schedule and to help decrease depression.
  7. Alone time. Alone time can be hard to come by, especially when you have a family, a job and commitments. However, it’s still important to carve out that special me time, in which you can de-stress and allow yourself to recharge.
  8. Take a steam shower. A steam shower is an excellent use of alone time. Steam is a natural stress fighter. It will increase blood circulation, cleanse your skin and allow you to breathe more easily. You can relax in steam with your favorite music playing through surround sound speakers, infuse essential oils into your shower with an aromatherapy system, use a built-in foot massager and enjoy the body massage jets. Take this time to focus on the sensations and relax. In the end, your mind and your body will feel better.
