7 Things To Do After a Steam Bath
Posted on 26 September 2022
Steam baths are growing popular among those who live busy lives and need a way to relax at the end of the day. Not only does steam provide an all-around therapeutic sensation, but it also helps reduce stress, supports cardiovascular and lung health, hydrates skin, and promotes restful sleep. At SaunaFin, we offer the high-quality Steamist SMP Series and the Elite Steam Generator that provide superior performance. To soak in all of these incredible advantages, there are 7 things you can do after using your steam bath.
Here are 7 things you can do after your steam bath to maximize the wellness benefits of steam therapy.
Benefits of Steam Baths
According to many research studies, it’s been proven that steam can help with your physical and mental health. Being in the heat and steam can make your body release endorphins and decrease your body’s production of cortisol. Endorphins are also known as the “feel good” hormones, while cortisol is released in response to stress. Using your Steamist SMP Series or the Elite Steam Generator enhances relaxation, allowing you to regulate your stress levels.
Drink Plenty of Water
One of the most important things to do after using your steam bath or shower is to drink plenty of water. Staying hydrated is essential, and drinking water before, during, and after sweating and spending time in a hot steam room is recommended. Being well-hydrated also enhances your mood, cognition, and sleep quality.
Take a Shower or Bath
Bathing after using your steam bath promotes the routine of self-care and helps cool down after your steam bath. At SaunaFin, our steam generators can be easily installed in any existing shower, meaning you can enjoy the perks of steam therapy while having access to your shower.
Stretching daily is highly beneficial for your mental and physical well-being and can drastically improve your mood. Since your muscles are warm from the heat, stretching can help condition your body’s soft tissue for optimal recovery after exercising. After using your Steamist or Elite Steam, try stretching your body in a way that feels good to you. Listen to your body and do what feels right for the best results.
After drying off after using your steam bath or shower, apply moisturizer to hydrate your skin further. Applying moisturizer not only feels great, but it helps rejuvenates your skin and ensures that toxins are removed from the top layer of your epidermis. By moisturizing after your steam therapy, you’ll notice your skin is much more hydrated, soft, and glowy.
Drink Herbal Tea
Drinking tea with antioxidants is a great way to combat toxins and assist in calming your mind and body. Herbal tea has become a popularized wellness practice and is perfect for enjoying after steam therapy.
Meditating after using your high-quality steam bath can help ease your mind of daily stressors and help consistent sleep. Meditating and practicing mindfulness can promote peacefulness and improve mental and physical health. Listening to guided meditations or music can be really helpful when meditating. At SaunaFin, we offer Audiosense for your steam bath, so you can listen to music via Bluetooth, allowing for further relaxation.
Many people struggle with sleep disorders, and steam therapy can improve sleep throughout the night. In addition, lighting and scents can help aid in relaxing. At SaunaFin, we offer Chromasense and Aromasense that can assist with decompressing before bed. Chromasense offers various light colours that you can change depending on your goals, like red lighting for relaxation or purple lighting for harmony. While Aromasense has numerous essential oils like “Relax” with Lavender & Orange or “Respiratory” with Sage & Eucalyptus.
