What is face steaming?
Using warm steam on your face to open pores to loosen dirt, oil and other build up for a deeper cleanse.
How often should you do it?
Only once per week. Although it's tempting to do it more often, it will do more harm than good.
How do you face steam?
I'll give you the hassle free way first. Get a small portable face steamer that is easy to move around and takes up little space. Use a small amount of filtered water in the steamer and steam for 5-10 min. If you rather do it the old school way, boil a pot of water and stand over the stove.
Who should face steam?
Anyone who wants to improve their skin should try face steaming. If you have very sensitive skin, rosacea or eczema, consult with a doctor as it could irritate your skin.
