The bath of steam provides more humidity (95%) and less temperature (50º) than the Finnish sauna. It produces a balanced hydration of the pores of the skin, deleting toxins and impurities. It also cleans the epidermis in depth, freeing it of toxins like heavy metals, sodium, cholesterol, greases, nicotine and alcohol. Thanks to it the pores dilate and clean the waste leaving a purified, soft and luminous skin from top to toe. In addition to that, the steam bath gives the skin a better tone and elasticity and it also fights off orange peel. As it leaves a smooth skin is the perfect moment to do an body exfoliation.
The respiratory system is also humidified and hydrated, producing an expectorant effect that is beneficial for respiratory diseases like sinusitis, cough or colds. At the same time, the cardiorespiratory system increases its capacity of exchanging oxygen and ventilation, favoring the circulation and improving the metabolism.
