When the end of the day comes, one of my favorite things to do is take a warm shower. I, like many others, prefer this daily ritual as oppose to a morning shower, to help me relax and prepare for bed. But did you know there are several interesting health benefits to nightly showers?
1- A hot shower is a natural sedative due to the drop in body temperature post-shower which signals your body’s metabolic functions to slow and prepare for rest (heart rate, breathing, and digestion).
2- At the end of the day, a shower is the best way to remove toxins from your skin. As you scrub your skin, innumerable toxins and pollutants that have collected there during the day will be washed away.
3- A warm shower can help reduce anxiety and stress. Taking a few minutes alone in the shower at the end of each day is extremely beneficial to relaxing your body and mind. Add the scent of lavender for further calming effects.
4- Muscles loosen and relax when the warm water of the shower hits them. While the relief may only be temporary, a hot shower can still provide a significant reduction in pain and inflammation.
5- The warm steam from a shower is a natural decongestant that will help clear any chest and nasal congestion so you can breathe easier.
After receiving all the wonderful benefits from a warm shower, I like to wrap up in a soft and cozy organic cotton towel. Choosing an organic cotton towel is super important so that you are not placing irritating fabrics that could leave chemical residues on your fresh skin.
