1. They are Relaxing The main reason any of us even try a steam room or sauna in the first place is to chill out. After a hard workout or a long day you need to just relax, which is exactly what you will do. The combination of heat plus being disconnected from the rest of the world for even just a few minutes can transform your attitude and make you feel more mellow.
2. They Help Clear Your Pores Think about it: saunas and steam rooms cause your pores to open so you can release sweat. As your pores open and sweat, they also flush out the icky stuff sitting on your skin’s surface or just below the surface. All the dirt and germs from your environment, your day, even your makeup get washed away in the stream of sweat.
