One, it cleanses your pores. Clogged pores are one of the key factors to breakouts, and can lead to infection or skin irritation. Whether you suffer from acne or have blemish-free skin, one of the best ways to cleanse facial pores is to steam your face. The warm steam causes your face to sweat, which opens the pores and helps soften the surface layer of dead skin cells. When steam is applied to the face, it softens blackhead plugs, gently releasing them from follicular openings. Steaming your face triggers a thermoregulating response in which blood vessels in the skin dilate so more blood can flow to the skin, which delivers oxygen and nutrients to the tissue. This is what gives you that tired and often times dull skin. Steam has a calming effect on your system, and if you add essential oils or herbs to the water, you now have a soothing, healing aromatherapy session at the same time. Facial steaming is a part of your own Synergy Skin and Body Bar experience.
