The Many benefits of Steam during your Facial
Face steaming is a wonderful way your face can feel and look fresh smooth and renewed. Like a mini spa vacation.
Getting a facial is both relaxing and beneficial to your skin. Waters Edge Salon and Spa have a selection to choose from and they are good for all skin types.
Here are some of the benefits of steam during your facial:
When your skin lacks water it is dehydrated. No matter what your skin type is, there are times you can experience dehydration in your skin. Steam during your facial provides your skin with the water that it needs to remain plump and hydrated and also help counteract signs of aging.
Better Absorption of Products
Steam during your facial will help to increase penetration of active ingredients in your products like retinol or vitamin C and that means they are more effective.
In addition to making the skin more hydrated and permeable, the heat and water from facial steaming can soften the skin. If you have acne it can make any skincare extractions a little less painful.
Loosens trapped Sebum
Sebum is a natural oil produced by our sebaceous glands. Its purpose is to lubricate our hair and skin, but, when sebum is trapped beneath the surface of our skin it can breed bacteria. If you have acne-prone or oily skin, the steam helps to loosen up any oils, bacteria, or dirt trapped in the skin that can cause acne. And if you steam your face after cleansing, it offers a deeper cleanse and allows your acne-fighting skincare to penetrate deeper into the skin and target those breakouts.
Promotes better Circulation
Steaming during your facial helps to dilate your blood vessels. and increases circulation. The boost of blood flow nourishes your skin and delivers oxygen resulting in a natural, healthy glow. Proper blood flow helps skin build collagen and elastin.
Steam can help relieve sinus congestion and headaches that often accompany it.
Just the feeling of warm steam on your face is relaxing. If you add herbs and essential oils to the face steam you can soothe the body and mind. It is a great time to focus on your breathing, taking slow deep breaths helping to de-stress.
