Let's Pamper: Benefits of Facial Steaming

Posted by Team Selia on

So what exactly is facial steaming and why should you know about it? During this cold winter, who doesn't like a warming and pampering experience right in the comfort of your home?

Introducing the wonders of facial steaming. Not only is this beneficial for your skin, but it is also doing wonders for your congestion. The steam and warm vapor increases blood circulation, purge impurities from your pores and improve your skin texture.

Instant Glow

By just steaming your face in 5-8 minutes, it helps increase blood circulation and the warmth increase collagen production.  

This boost of blood flow nourishes your skin and delivers oxygen. The result is a natural, healthy glow.

Pore Love

The warmth of the steam opens up your pores and helps keep your skin clear by purging impurities. We put a lot of products on our skin every day. From makeup to sunscreen, our pores deserve some gentle TLC too. In case our cleanser didn't get everything, the steam helps loosen any clogged oil and dirt that was sitting deep in our pores and releasing trapped sebum.

When sebum gets trapped beneath your skin’s surface, it creates a breeding ground for bacteria and causes acne and blackheads. It disinfects our pores to fight fungal and bacterial growth as well.

 

Hydrating

Steam creates moisture and hydrates the skin by helping to increase oil production, naturally moisturizing the face. It helps your skin better absorb skincare products.

 

Mood Lifting + Unplug

Take a moment to gather your thoughts and just breathe. Unplug yourself from your devices for just 10 minutes. The aroma and warm steam from our facial steam just calms and soothes our mood. 

Tip: Play your favorite meditating music during your steam to unplug and stay present.

 

Soothe Congestion

Are you feeling that itch in your throat or the stuff in your nose? Steam helps open up and clear your airway. It also improves breathing and kills off any bacteria living in there.

 

Follow your facial steaming sessions with your favorite clay mask for a more radiant glow and softer skin.
