Facial treatments are fantastic at giving your skin a healthy appearance. I would recommend having a professional facial monthly. However you can do a DIY facial at home. For me facial treatment is the ultimate treatment it’s not only beneficial to your skin, but extremely relaxing. A facial treatment should be carried out in dimmed lighting with the smell of essential oils to enhance the experience. Never rush a facial treatment and always treat your skin gently.
Benefits of using a facial steamer for warming your skin:
- Warming the epidermis makes exfoliation easier. I personally use Kaeso products in my beauty salon.
- Warming the skin prior to blackhead removal is very important as it opens the pores making blackhead removal easier. NEVER try to remove blackheads without warming the skin first. You have around 20 mins before the pores start to close again. Always remove blackheads gently to avoid the risk of scarring the skin.
- Steaming your skin stimulates the blood circulation and lymphatic systems.
- Sebaceous gland activity is improved with steaming, which benefits dry mature skin. Sebaceous glands produce sebum, which is the oil that lubricates your skin.
Always use distilled water in the facial steamer. Never tap water. Take care of your professional steamer and clean it according to manufacturing instructions. This will avoid lime scale build up and pro-long the life of the machine.
This is not suitable for people with asthma. Please check other medical conditions before using. This is very important. If you have sensitive skin steaming can irritate your skin.
Keep the facial steamer around 30cm from your face allowing a fine mist to be directed at your face for around 10 minutes. Take care not to have facial steamer too close to your skin.
Cover eyes and any broken capillaries with cotton pads.
