The beauty industry truly has evolved during the surge of a global pandemic where varieties of beauty tools were introduced in the market in relation to enhancing one’s beauty and mimicking salon, spa, and facial experiences. There’s this trend for facial steaming that is currently making noise in today’s beauty world. Have you, by any chance, tried doing it as part of your skincare routine?
If you are looking for ways to step up your current skincare routine. Facial steaming might be one of our recommendations for you. While there are readily available tools in the market that do steaming. You can as well opt to do it by yourself. Me-time made it more fun! Steaming is a skin treatment that cleanses, nourishes, and refreshes the skin. Methods for steaming thy face involve submerging clean towels in hot water and applying them to your face and letting it cool down. The other is bringing a pot of water to boil and thereafter, with a clean towel draped over your head, place your face above the pot to trap the steam. This indulgent practice dates back to ancient Europe. On the other note, rather than just by boiling water alone, you can as well add herbs such as Chamomile oil, which according to this study can help with skin inflammation, or Rosemary which could be a great alternative for those who are dealing with oily skin.
Excited now to give it a try? Check on these 6 reasons why you should give facial steaming a try as it gives so much good to your skin.
It aids in the process of cleansing
Steaming preps your skin in the cleansing stage as the steam can open up pores and helps loosen any buildup of dirt for deeper cleansing. Not only that, but opening pores can also soften blackheads making them getting easier to get rid of.
It improves the blood circulation
Did you know that facial steam promotes a healthy skin glow? The increase in perspiration from the warm steam dilates the blood vessels thereby increasing circulation. The boost in the circulation nourishes thy skin and delivers oxygen. Revealing a more natural, healthy glow.
It releases excess sebum
Excessive oil production is the culprit of unwanted breakouts. Steaming the face is a good resort to getting rid of the breeding ground of bacteria that causes acne and blackheads.
Steaming enhances the skin’s ability to absorb skincare products
Steaming as concluded in this study published in the year 2011 enhances skin’s permeability to better absorb topicals. Getting you, all prep up for all the preceding skincare products. Thereby, allowing you to reap the beneficial properties it offers.
