3 Simple Ways to Steam your face at home
Steaming your face once in a while is very important to keep your skin clean and healthy. A skin care routine is never perfect if you do not follow facial steaming at least once in a month. It is always not feasible to run to parlous to get facial steaming done. Instead, you can try these 3 simple methods to steam your face at home without any fancy equipment.
But before that, let’s understand why Facial steam is important and what are its skin care benefits.
Benefits of Facial Steaming
Removes Blackheads: One of the most acclaimed benefits of facial steaming is, it helps loosen the black heads on the face and makes it easier to remove them without much pain.
Unclogs Pores: Clogged pores are one of the key contributing factors to acne breakouts, and can lead to infection and severe skin irritation. The warm steam causes your face to sweat, which opens the pores and helps soften the surface layer of dead skin cells, releasing dirt and debris that could be the cause of breakouts and would otherwise stay trapped.
Enhances skin circulation and makes you look younger: Steaming your face triggers a thermo regulating response in which blood vessels in the skin dilate, thus more blood can flow to the skin, which delivers oxygen and nutrients to the tissue. This is what gives tired, dull skin that rosy, dewy post-steam glow.
Better penetration of Skin care Products: Once your pores have opened and the dirt and debris have been eliminated, your clean pores can now better absorb products you might use, such as a face mask or serum.
How to Steam your face at home
Bowl of steaming water. Bring a pot of water to a boil, transfer the water to a ceramic or glass bowl, drape a towel over your head covering the bowl too for trapping the steam. Place your face close enough to the steam so you feel it on your face, but not so close that your skin feels like it is burning or overheating.
Steaming with warm towels. With this method, you submerge clean towels in hot water, wring them out, allow them to cool down to a comfortably warm temperature, and then apply them to your face.
