7 Reasons Why Hot Baths Are Good For Your Health

Dr. Arti Goyal    03-06-2019 Consult

Showering is one of those few things every person does in the morning. When you take shower, it gives you an intimate moment to do something good for your body. But, did you know showering in morning can be as beneficial as showering at night?

1. RELAXES MUSCLES

After a long tiring day, all that a person needs is some relaxation. Stress can tamper with your sleep. It can stimulate circulation and cell movement, and water pressure relieves organs. A hot water bath is therefore, quite a need.

2. ALLEVIATES MIGRAINE

Your entire body has nerves that transmit signals to the brain when you experience pain. These nerve endings are responsive towards skin temperature. A hot water bath increases the body's temperature, increases blood flow in the area and also the body's reaction to pain, thus alleviating migraine symptoms.

3. REDUCES SWELLING

If you have a swollen body part, especially a foot or an ankle, hot water bath at night will give you relief and help your sleep to be less disturbed. Put some hot water on the swollen body part and cover it properly with a warm cloth before going to bed.

4. REDUCES ANXIETY

Countless incidents that occur throughout the day can make you anxious and sleepless. Taking a hot water bath revitalizes your senses and makes you feel less anxious before you go to sleep.

5. FIGHTS NASAL CONGESTION

Nasal congestion can cause breathlessness and disrupt your sleep. Therefore, before going to bed take a hot water bath. This will run the warm steam through lungs and into your nasal passage, loosening mucus and relieving congestion.

6. REMOVES TOXINS FROM SKIN

Hot water bath works as a natural toxin-remover for your skin. Heat from hot water triggers sweating and thereby, gently eliminates heavy metals and toxic chemicals.

7. OPENS PORES AND CLEANSES SKIN

Heat from hot water relaxes and opens pores of your skin, making it easier to clean. Sometimes, you may notice your skin becoming red and blotchy in the shower. There is no need to worry because it is just the bacteria leaving your body.
