5 KEY BENEFITS OF FACIAL STEAMING

1. DEEP CLEANS PORES
Steaming can open and deep clean pores and encourage perspiration, helping to eliminate stubborn skin congestion
and impurities which can lead to blemishes.

2. NATURALLY MOISTURIZES + INCREASES ABSORPTION OF SKINCARE PRODUCTS
Moist heat hydrates and revives dry, tired skin and boosts healthy oil production which in turn naturally moisturizes it.
Since the steam tends to open the pores, it can also prime the skin to better absorb topical products, which is especially beneficial during dry, cold winter months. Immediately follow a steam with your favourite mask or a toning mist and serum to get the most out of the treatment.

3. BOOSTS CIRCULATION
The hot water vapours and increased perspiration together boost blood circulation to the face, delivering oxygen and reinvigorating the skin.

4. PROMOTES COLLAGEN PRODUCTION
This increase in blood flow helps to promote production of collagen and elastin, which can lead to firmer, youthful looking skin.

5. RELAXES + SOOTHES
Finally, it’s an accessible, calming aromatherapeutic experience which can be soothing and meditative, and can help reduce everyday stress.
