For many years, steam has shown to be good to your skin as it opens up your pores letting out toxins and impurities. Did you know you can maximise your time in a steam room to get the most for your skin? Consistency is the key to improving the health of your skin with steam. If you were to use your steam room roughly 3 times a week for 15 minutes per session, the health of your skin will improve significantly.
Shower well before use
The first step to take before stepping into your steam room is to shower. This removes a large percentage of oils and impurities from your skin. You should also make sure your make up and facial creams have been effectively removed (if you are wearing any), and ideally try to avoid using lotions or creams on your skin prior to steaming. This is because make up, oil and creams will clog your pores, subsequently making your steam session less effective.
Dry well before us
Now you have showered, before entering your steam room, make sure your body is dry. If your skin is wet, it doesn’t sweat as well, which is necessary to get the most out of your session.
Enjoy your session
Having showered and dried, now you need to ensure you stay in the steam room for 15 minutes. This exposes your skin to the unique environment for a good amount of time to reap the benefits.
Shower well after use
Now you’ve enjoyed your 15-minute session in your steam room, it is time to take a cool shower. This is to cool your body down and hydrate it after your steam session, getting rid of all impurities that were flushed out of your skin by the steam. Make sure you drink plenty of water for 24 hours after your steam, and moisture your skin regularly for maximum results.
