Good news: facial steaming does not require a spa appointment, which means you can get all its benefits from the comfort of your own home. All you need is water, ideally heated at 110 degrees Fahrenheit or 43 degrees Celsius, a bowl and a towel. Easy, right?
Start by cleansing off impurities and makeup, tie your hair back, pour the water into the bowl and drape the towel over your head and bowl to trap the steam. Allow it to envelop your face for five minutes, pat your skin dry, then tone and moisturize with your regular skincare products. Beauty tip: for a soothing and invigorating touch, use Jalue Ice Therapy herbal mix as an alternative to plain water for your facial steaming session. Bliss.
Repeating this process once a week comes with fantastic benefits for your skin. Here are some of them:
Cleanses Pores: sweat opens pores and softens the outer skin layer releasing debris and dirt that normally leads to breakouts.
Enhances Blood Circulation: since blood vessels dilate because of heat, more blood flows to the skin delivering extra nutrients and oxygen to the tissue.
Helps Skincare Products Better Penetrate the Skin: clean pores easily absorb serums and moisturizers leading to improved results.
Removes Toxins: steaming causes sweat which has a detoxifying effect on the skin)
Gives Skin a Youthful Look: steaming sessions boost hydration hence skin appears fresher and smoother.
Pamper your face with this natural and gentle alternative to harsh exfoliation, especially if you are prone to rosacea or severe acne. Your skin will smile back at you.
