The Traditional Hammam. Peeling the Skin and Stimulating Its Metabolism.
But bathing culture is not just about striking architecture; it is also a sophisticated cultural practice. In a Turkish steam bath, visitors pass through different rooms where the temperature gradually increases from 30 °C to 55 °C to allow their cardio-circulatory system to adjust to the heat without placing the body under unnecessary strain. And each room has its own function: there is an initial relaxation room, a massage room where visitors' muscles are loosened and the skin is purified and cleansed, a room where cool to pleasantly warm water is poured on the skin to increase the blood circulation, and a final relaxation area to conclude the bathing ritual.
During the massage, a key element of the hammam, the body is rubbed down with a fine wash mitt known as the “kese”, which is made either of silk or goat's hair. The rub removes dead skin cells and effectively cleanses the skin's pores which have been opened by the warm steam. Afterwards, the skin glows radiantly and looks and feels soft and smooth.
