- Exfoliate as You Bathe (cleaning and refreshing)
Love hot showers? Try steam bath and see for yourselves how amazing it is for your body. You go in all tense and come out super relaxed and refreshed. You would need to clean your body first with a shower routine and save the exfoliation for later. Since your skin would be clean then, the steam would not penetrate your bodily skin with all the dirt, and also the dead skin would soak up.
Enter the steam bath without clothes so steam touches every inch of the skin and begin to rub the dead skin off using your hands or using a physical exfoliator. Wash afterward.
- Exfoliate Your Face (cleaning)
On a clean face, blow some hot and fresh steam. Make sure your face is locked directly above the source of steam if you are doing, use a towel for the same. If you are doing automated steam, make sure the steam reaches your face uniformly. After much heat and water dripping off your face, proceed with exfoliating. You can use a light physical exfoliation while the skin is moist enough or pat dry and then do a chemical exfoliation.
The point is to make dead skin cells come off easily and effortlessly.
- Moisturize Your Face with Steaming (protecting)
With some light steaming, you can put in the most important ingredients on your facial skin or otherwise, that is, moisturizer. Once you have exfoliated your skin for the good, you would need moisturizer for that dose of hydration so your skin is not scorched, tightened, and dried up. Infuse some steam right before putting in hyaluronic acid products or a simple moisturizer.
This will help the product penetrate better and keep the skin hydrated for a long period. By this time, your skin must feel much more relaxed and cooled down.
Try putting your topping cream in a fridge for some time before using it.
- Moisturize Right after the Steam Bath (glistening)
Once you have gotten rid of all the dead cells and now feel extra energetic, it is time that you protected your skin right away by putting in moisturizing agents while your skin is still moist. This will make your skin plumper and squeaky clean and help the product be absorbed better. If you are into oils, they will not feel as sticky if you massaged them right away.
Since old times, steam has been used for a variety of purposes, to cure colds, to relieve pain, to get rid of dead cells, and of course, to relax. For supple skin, much hydration is taken care of by steam. Many people like to use steam for addressing many of their health concerns and it seems to have no side effects, rather it prevents the growth of viruses in the body. For skincare, you can use steam in different ways like during baths, while you are moisturizing your face, or scrubbing the body.
