SkinCare Memo Vol 2: Facial Steamer

Ladies, I have been searching and searching for ways to reduce my pores, get better results with my skin care products and never have an acne breakout again……….Ha.

I have had a few luck here and there and one day I took the plunge and purchased a facial steamer. My skin cannot thank me enough, my pores are noticeably smaller, I rarely have that one acne that comes during that time of the month, my skincare products absorb better, my skin is clearer and I have such a noticeable glow. All thanks to using a steamer twice a week.

Let’s dive into the Facial Steamer. The Facial Steamer is used my professionals before starting a facial. I never really ask my Facialist why she start my facial with it but I enjoy the steam before my facial begin, it is so relaxing and invigorating. I have listed below some of the benefits of steaming.

  • CLEANSING – Steam opens your pores and loosen the buildup f dirt for a deeper cleanse.
  • BLOOD CIRCULATION -The warm steam dilates blood cells, increase perspiration and increase circulation of blood, which nourishes the skin and result in a natural glow.
  • RELEASE SEBUM/ACNE CAUSING BACTERIA AND CELLS – Steaming opens the pores, release bacteria, dead skin cells and impurities that contributes to acne.
  • BETTER ABSORPTION – It makes the skin more permeable thus causing better absorption of skincare products and it hydrates the skin to increase oil production.
  • COLLAGEN AN ELASTIN – It promotes the production of collagen and elastin which result in younger and healthy looking skin.

You can add various oils to the water before starting your steaming to decongest your skin and real better. The best oils are Eucalyptus, Chamomile, lavender. It is best to steam after cleansing and before applying essence/serum. This is the steamer I purchased and I added other options as well.
