Facials are treatments to deep-clean the face with masks, serums and steamers. By steaming your face, you open up your pores and allow products to penetrate and work better. Usually, they are done by skin professionals; however, nowadays, you can easily include the treatment in your weekly skincare regimen.
Portable facial steamers bring the spa experience at the comfort of your home. The benefits of using a facial steamer are that it increases blood circulation, melts away the dirt and oils that clog pores and enables ingredients of products to perform more beneficially.
After a steaming session (always from a safe distance) you can follow up with your daily skincare routine as per usual. I have rounded up the best facial steamers that will leave your skin feeling clean, rejuvenated and refreshed.
