Discover The Amazing Benefits of Facial Steaming 

 

All skin types can benefit from using steam to cleanse their skin, celebrities visit famous Spa's to have facial Steaming treatments. But everyone does not have the time or money to spend on expensive Spa treatments. Who skin wouldn't benefit from warm Lavender steam; working all kinds of miracles on tired aging skin?  But you can actually create your own facial steaming treatment ,just like the expensive Spa's because steam is just hot water. I fully trust you can safely boil hot water!!!  If you suffer from dry skin, and acne, wrinkles; sagging skin; fine lines try steaming your face once a week.

 

Learn the Benefits of Steaming your Face

It's cleansing, steam opens up your pores and  gives you a deeper type of clean; which helps your skin remove trapped dirt and debris which leads to acne.

Steaming also promotes circulation, the warm steam and increased sweating dilates blood vessels and increases blood flow and nourish your skin while delivering oxygen. 

Face steaming releases acne causing bacteria, remember that opening up your pores releases dead skin cells and bacteria and other impurities that causes acne.

Also steaming releases trapped sebum which causes a breeding ground for bacteria.

Face steaming works to hydrate your skin by helping to increase oil production which is a natural moisturizer for your face.

It helps your skin absorb skin care products; so it's an awesome idea to steam first then apply your topical skin care products.

 

How To Steam

Steaming can be done by leaning over a large bowl of boiling water (please be careful), by covering your head with a towel and making a tent around the bowl.

 Please do not get to close to the boiling water, because if the steam is too hot, it might cause broken veins or even worse you could burn your skin. 

 

 How often should you steam your face?

You can safely steam your face once a week for better results. Limit each steam treatment to 10 minutes so you won't damage your skin. Also let the water cool a little before you start your treatment. Remember we want to improve the appearance and health of our skin and not cause any damage or harm. So again please use caution when handling hot water and using this Face Steam treatment.

What to do after steaming your face

Dry your skin by gently patting it until completely dry with a  clean cotton towel

Now that you have cleaned your face of all the impurities and dirt your pores are loosened and ready to be toned. Try using a natural toner like apple cider vinegar; which is an antiseptic and anti bacterial. You really want to use a toner that balance your skin's PH balance and works as an exfoliate too. 

Complete your natural skincare treatment with a natural moisturizer like the one below.

 

 

Quick tip: Always wash your face before Facial Steaming

 

 Power Your Steam With Oils And Herbs

To make steaming your skin more beneficial, try adding dried herbs and essential oils; usually around a couple of tablespoons of herbs or oils to the water.  Some oils and herbs are more beneficial for certain skin types.

 Chamomile herb helps with skin inflammation and dermatitis and is great on sensitive skin.

Rosemary is known to work great for oily skin, it protects skin cells from damage caused by the sun and radicals. Also Rosemary is a natural antiseptic and a super awesome disinfectant.

Eucalyptus oil is an anti inflammatory and is able to provide a natural cooling sensation and pain relieving properties. Eucalyptus oil contains antibacterial properties and protects the skin from infection.

 

Lavender oil is really great on dry skin and eczema; it also works great as anti aging weapon reducing wrinkles.

Tea Tree Oil is great for treating acne due to it's anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties; it also helps to reduce redness and swelling, and inflammation. Tea Tree oil also leaves your skin clean and smooth, and can also reduce acne scars. 

Geranium oil works as a natural astringent that tightens and tones your skin.

Orange oil is so uplifting and works wells with blocked pores and brings life to your complexion. 

Coconut Oil retains moisture content of your skin and helps to heal your skin really fast. Coconut oil also contains antimicrobial and disinfectant properties so this aides in the fast healing process. It also repairs skin tissue and keeps your skin healthy and radiant. Coconut oil is a powerful anti-aging weapon.

These herbs smell so good, your house will smell good also.

 Quick Tip: By steaming your skin blackheads come out of the pores and it becomes easy to extract them.

 

Benefits of steaming face for acne

Cleans out pores
Steam loosens dirt and debris for pores
Decrease acne inducing bacteria
Softens blackheads
Promotes circulation
Releases trapped sebum

 

If you suffer from pustular acne, I would not advise steaming as the steam and heat can spread the infection. If you have been extracting blackheads use a face mask containing curds, kaolin, cucumber or comfrey, as these are astringent and healing.
