For those who have had a professional facial treatment before, you likely have received some form of steam treatment. Beauty benefits aside, back in the days of old, steam was used to help aid in treating many forms of ailments.

Below you will find a list of beauty benefits of facial steaming.

1. Whiteheads and blackheads removal

Steaming acts as a deep cleanser to remove oil and dirt from your pores because you sweat out a lot of impurities in the process, such as whiteheads, blackheads, etc, giving you a deep cleanse where soap simply cannot.

2. Prevent pimples

When a pore becomes clogged with oil and dead skin cells, pimples may result. Steaming helps in unclogging dirt and oil, which results in preventing the formation of pimples.


3. Natural anti-aging remedy

Steaming your face has some anti-aging benefits, too. In fact steaming contributes to young and healthy skin.

Steaming helps renew dead cells by improving blood circulation on your face. During the steaming process, the dead skin cells break away break away from the epidermis and fall off, making room for newer cells growing up from below, which results in better blood flow and makes the skin look more radiant and supple?

4. Boost hydration

A dose of water vapor applied directly to the face for 5-10 minutes typically results in skin that is dewy to the touch. Damp skin is also best for moisturizing, as lotion is able to absorb quickly and lock in more hydration.
