Both hot and cold steam can help your skin in different ways, especially if you have dry skin or spots. Most people have learned about the benefits of hydrating facial mist after going to salons and spas, but it’s easier and cheaper to do your own steaming at home.
There are many good things about Steam, such as:
- Opening the ports so dirt and dead skin cells are easy to get rid of
- It gets the blood flowing, making you look more awake.
- Brings back moisture to the top layer of the skin
- Clears nasal and sinus passages that are clogged.
People used to use boiled water in a teapot, the steam room at the gym, or hot compresses. Even putting their faces over pots of boiling water has been done. Many of these are not safe, which is a shame.
But a facial steamer you use at home has all the same benefits as the one you get at a salon or spa. With the home steamer, you can give yourself facials at home whenever you want. If you want a facial before bed or when you wake up, all you have to do is fill the water tank, plug it in, and turn it on. You won’t have to wait long to use your own steamer.
If you like to exfoliate your skin, a home steamer will also make it easy to take off a facial mask. Just put on the mask like you normally would and let it dry. Then let the steam soften the mask, and use a warm cloth to take it off. You will find that the mask comes off easily without having to scrub too hard, which could cause inflammation.
Steam is also good because it gives oxygen and moisture to the skin and gets rid of toxins. The steam opens the pores and loosens any blackheads or whiteheads. It also helps keep new spots from appearing.
It is important that the steamer first break up the steam into tiny pieces. The steamer’s ability to atomize the steam, on the other hand, makes sure that the steam particles are small enough for your skin to absorb. Regular steam particles are too big to be absorbed by the skin.
The new steamers of today also have a feature that makes a cold mist. This feature is great for people with allergies because it gets rid of allergens on the skin. You will also notice that it tightens the skin and makes the pores smaller. Redness and swelling can also be lessened by a cool mist.
The steamer can also be used with essential oils. Using different essential oils will depend on your skin type. For example, fennel, rosemary, or lemon are all good for oily skin. Chamomile and lavender are good for dry and sensitive skin. Lemon oil or oil patchouli can help skin that has been damaged by the sun.
As you can see, there are many reasons to use a facial steamer at home, and you can get all the benefits of a spa right in your bedroom or bathroom.
