A lot of people enjoy taking a bath in warm water, especially during cold days and nights. More than a way to cleanse your body of dirt and the like, baths are also a great opportunity for a person to relax and unwind. Bathing in warm water, however, does more to the body than relaxation.
Immersing yourself in warm water can open up the skin’s pores, flushing out not only dirt, but also toxins that may be residing beneath your skin. Thus, it’s no surprise that your skin will feel cleaner and fresher upon emerging from the pool.
In today’s world, toxins are almost everywhere. Car exhaust, household chemicals, perfumes, cosmetics, pesticides, parasites, and smog are just some of the many harmful substances that can enter the body through the skin. By detoxifying yourself in a warm spa bath or swimming pool, many of these toxins can gradually be removed from the body.
Improves your Blood Circulation
In a way, dipping in warm water is like doing a simple exercise. Since water creates physical pressure on the body, it also causes the heart to work faster and stronger. Swimming is one of the best ways to exercise and tone the body.
A Word of Caution
Given these effects of warm water to the body, it is generally advisable for people with medical conditions to seek a doctor’s approval first. Otherwise, you can enjoy all of these benefits of a detoxifying spa bath or swim any time you want.
Obviously you will need a quality heating system installed on your swimming pool such as a solar pool heating system, gas heater or heat pump, so you can enjoy a warm and relaxing swim any day of the week, any time of the year.
