The Advantages of Steaming Your Skin
It's cleansing. Steam opens your pores and aids in the removal of dirt buildup for a more complete cleansing. When your pores open up, blackheads soften and become easier to remove.
It promotes circulation. Warm steam, along with increased sweating, dilates blood vessels and increases circulation. This increased blood flow feeds and oxygenates your skin. The final result is a healthy, natural glow.
Bacteria and cells that cause acne are discharged. By opening your pores, you can discharge dead skin cells, bacteria, and other pollutants that clog pores and cause acne.
It enables the discharge of trapped sebum. This naturally occurring oil is produced by your sebaceous glands to lubricate your skin and hair. When sebum becomes trapped under the skin's surface, it acts as a breeding ground for bacteria, resulting in acne and blackheads.
It keeps the body hydrated. Steam hydrates the skin by promoting the production of oil, which moisturizes the face naturally.
It promotes the absorption of skincare products. Steam increases the skin's permeability, allowing it to absorb topical more efficiently. This means that skincare products used after steam provide more bang for your buck.
It's soothing. The sensation of warm steam on your face is relaxing. Add some relaxing fragrances to your steam session with herbs or essential oils for aromatherapy to take it to a whole new level of tranquility.
It helps to relieve nasal congestion. Steam can help with common side effects such as nasal congestion and headaches. Adding essential oils to your steam may assist to boost the effect.
Here is how you can Steam Properly Using Heated Towels
Switch on the hot water faucet and take a hand towel. Fill your sink or basin with hot water to the point where your towel may be immersed. Toss in the herbs.
Secure your hair away from your face and wash your face and neck with a mild exfoliating cleanser.
Soak your towel in hot water for a few minutes before wringing it out to get it moist.
In a comfortable chair, lie down or lean back. Place the towel on your face, bringing each corner up to the center of your brow.
Adjust the towel to cover your whole face, including your eyes, leaving only your nose exposed. Take 5 minutes to relax.
