We have been clarifying, hydrating, and treating ourselves with the utmost care, and because of that, it’s time to up our beauty regimen to introduce the many benefits of steam.

Steaming increases the temperature of hair and skin by opening pores and lifting the hair cuticle. This process allows for a deeper clean for easier skin extractions and enhanced absorption of products.

What Are The Skin Benefits?

Aside from loosening impurities, facial steaming helps hydrate and soften the outer skin layer, making it ideal for exfoliation and mask treatments.

  • Hydrates and moisturizes
  • Reduces excess sebum
  • Increase circulation

  • Boost absorption

After steaming your face for 5-10 mins, make sure to enhance benefits by following a mask appropriate for your skin needs.
