Steaming opens up pores for a deeper clean and eliminates acne causing bacteria. The warm steam in combination with an increase in perspiration dilates blood vessels and so increases circulation. The increased circulation means a promotion of collagen and elastin production. The steam naturally helps to hydrate your skin which helps your skin absorb skincare better.
Steaming your face doesn’t have to be complicated. You can even do it over the sink. Fill the sink with hot water, you can even add a few drops of essential oil. Get a chair and place it in front of the sink so you are comfortable. Get a soft fluffy towel over your head. Steam your face for about 5-10 minutes. If it’s too hot, just raise and lower your head above the sink or lift the towel a bit.
Now you are ready to continue with a face mask for a continued spa ritual or if you have less time, your normal daily routine . Enjoy 😊
