“You are only as old as you think you are.”
Well, it is definitely true, isn’t it? However, on the flip side, we strive towards hanging onto the last straws of youth, our looks, and skin using various cosmetics, surgeries, and treatments.
We resort to permanent and non-permanent procedures such as blood transfusions from the young, stem cell therapies, Botox, and dermal fillers. In our pursuit of fuller lips, chiseled jawlines, and flawless complexions we have blurred the lines between surgical and non-surgical procedures.
Unlock Body’s True Potential
We are a generation that’s obsessed with looking good, partying hard and living a long life.
Somewhere we all know but have conveniently ignored the true potential of the body in maintaining and upkeeping itself. It’s really a lifestyle switch, a conscious decision to getting closer to nature. What we stand to discover is that the human body has a tremendous capacity to rejuvenate and renew itself; if we adopt the right approach, that is.
Instead of playing with nature’s processes and cell structures to reverse-aging and increasing longevity why don’t we go back to the basics?
And what screams nature more than – water and heat, right? Hydro – water; Thermal – heat, put them together and you get the purest substance is known to mankind – steam droplets! Daily steaming is a time tested, yet the immensely fashionable approach to increase longevity. Even Benjamin Franklin started his days with a steam session…google it!
Exfoliate Your Entire Body
Steam therapy is a cost-savvy, easy technique to improve skin quality. A facial steamer or an old fashioned steam bowl comes with its own limitations. Steam room sessions enable an entire body to cleanse. Research has shown that heating the top layer of skin acts as an enzymatic exfoliator.
Steaming helps counteracts the signs of aging. It boosts hydration of the skin leaving you with magnified natural radiance, while also softening the skin’s outer layer. It greatly benefits those with sensitive skin, easily irritated by creams and serums.
Steaming helps clean those clogged pores. It causes you to sweat out trapped toxins and get rid of the layers of dead skin cells thereby cleaning us holistically, without chemicals! It softens blackhead plugs, gently releasing them from follicular openings.
Collagen is the most common and abundant form of protein in the body found in many tissues of the muscles, bones, tendons, blood vessels, and the digestive system. As you age the skin becomes thin and loose due to loss of collage and elastin. Steaming helps in boosting the production of collagen and elastin giving it a more voluminous, supple and resistant appearance.
It cannot replace Retinoid or other steroidal treatments, but you can definitely avoid or at least push them to a later date if you steam regularly.
Beat The Stress
It’s not the stress that kills us, it is our reaction to it- the damage stress puts on the body does nothing to reverse the clock. The emotional stress we go through speeds up our cellular aging process. We need to sweat out the stress literally. Manage the stresses from our day-to-day routine by saying bye-bye to Cortisol and similar stress-inducing hormones.
Feel Weightless And Sleep Easy
As we step into the steam room our muscles and joints experience deep relaxation. Once we relax, we learn to manage our circadian rhythm -a natural, internal process that regulates the sleep-wake cycle. A disrupted circadian rhythm means sleep disorders and hormones went haywire leading to obesity, diabetes, bipolar disorder.
Step Up Your Daily Shower Game
SteamPro makes it possible to have steam installed in your current shower space without any breakage or construction, in under 60 mins.
You can up the experience by listening to relaxing music while having steam. Listening to the strains of Sufi, classical and instrumental music like Beethoven, Mozart, and the more contemporary Yanni, Kenny G helps soothe frayed nerves.
Adding essential oils like eucalyptus helps rejuvenate your senses and reduce oxidative stress.
