The Benefits of Facial Steaming

People use different methods to hydrate and clean their faces. If you are looking for a natural way to up your skincare game, consider facial steaming. Is steam beneficial to your face? Of course. People have over the years used it to unwind and rejuvenate. You can steam up today in a spa, sauna, or hot shower.

Facial steaming at home requires clean water and heat only. By using these two ingredients together with your preferred essential oil, you can enjoy many skincare benefits. Here’s a breakdown of six benefits of facial steam and why you should add it to your skincare rituals.


Removes Skin Impurities

Facial steaming opens your skin pores and removes dead skin cells, oil, sweat, dirt, and bacteria that usually clog up the pores. With clean pores, there's a lesser chance of acne and breakouts.


Gets Rid of Blackheads

Blackheads occur mainly on the face, neck, and around the chest. Over time, they can become painful and annoying to deal with. Steaming is a great way to prepare your pores for blackhead removal. It softens and loosens them. If at home, you can pick them using a stainless-steel loop-style extractor after a steam. In the end, your face achieves a clear and radiant appearance.


Remove Excess Sebum

Sebaceous glands produce a substance called sebum that lubricates your skin and hair. Sebum gets locked in underneath the skin's surface and forms a breeding ground for bacteria, resulting in blackheads and blemishes. Facial steam opens the pores and removes trapped sebum oil.


Improved Blood Circulation

You might have a good skincare routine, but your skin looks unappealing and dehydrated. The problem could be related to poor circulation of blood on your face. Facial steam unclogs your skin pores and increases perspiration.

As a result, your blood vessels dilate and allow better blood circulation to your face. Good blood circulation on your face helps with the natural production of collagen and elastin, giving your skin a bouncy, plump look.


Reverse Aging Process

Built-up dead skin cells often make your face appear dull and withered. Over time, you get wrinkles, fine lines, and other aging signs. Steaming your face can serve as a natural exfoliator to get rid of dead skin cells and roll back years. The resulting skin underneath will appear fresh, youthful, and radiant.

Better Product Penetration

Chances are you use several skin care products on your face. Over time, these products get trapped in your skin pores. Hence, they may not produce good skin results. Facial steaming makes your skincare products produce better results. Wondering how? Steaming unclogs your pores. Thus, your skin becomes increasingly permeable and responsive to topical products.
