Cold showers are often recommended as the most beneficial for he alth and the immune system. But a hot bath is no less useful for the body. So see why it's good to take a relaxing warm bath at least 3 times a week!
A hot bath treats headaches and fights colds
The natural vapors that are released in the hot tub act as a natural decongestant, which causes the lining of the upper respiratory tract to clear of swelling. This way, the nose is easily unblocked and breathing is normalized.
You can add a few drops of essential oils such as eucalyptus or peppermint, for example, which will contribute not only to the overall relaxation of the body, but will have a positive effect on colds and flu.
Essential oils in combination with hot water help fight secretions and sore throats. They also increase blood circulation, which helps relieve headaches.
Moisturizes the skin
A hot bath opens the pores of the skin and thus it is easier to get rid of the dirt and sebum sealed in the pores. The water penetrates deeply and hydrates the skin very well. This makes it elastic, soft and well moisturized.
A hot bath stimulates circulation in the lymphatic system. This makes you sweat more profusely, and sweat flushes out large amounts of toxins and bacteria that have accumulated in the body.
Helps with insomnia
If you suffer from insomnia, a hot bath is one solution. Even if you don't have sleep problems, you will see how much more deeply and peacefully you sleep after a hot bath. The duration of non-awakening sleep increases significantly after a relaxing warm bath.
While soaking the body in the hot tub, the body temperature rises, and after leaving the bath, the temperature slowly starts to drop. This triggers mechanisms in the body that make you drift.
When taking a hot bath, never rush. Enjoy to the fullest to reap the maximum benefits of this pleasant ritual. Even if you don't have a bathtub, a hot shower is just as good.
Hot water in general has irreplaceable benefits for the body that you should definitely take advantage of. Stress hormones naturally increase during the day. If you have an intense work day filled with a lot of dynamics, decision-making and problematic situations, you must soak in the hot tub in the evening!
