Facial steaming is by far one of the most overlooked ways to get rid of acne. In fact, it is so powerful that acne sufferers only need to do it a few times per month in order to fully benefit from its results. Let’s take the magical acne formula touted by scientists everywhere. Acne is the result of bacteria plus oil plus clogged pores. Without the 3, acne simply cannot form. What we are therefore doing is removing one of the key ingredients to produce acne.

So, is it a wonder, that steaming, which virtually eliminates clogged pores is the reason why it is so effective. When you eliminate the clogged pores, acne simply cannot form. Not to mention, steaming is free and can be done with minimal tools, cost nearly nothing and can be done as often as necessary.

The basic idea behind steaming is that you boil water (or get a steamer) and then simply let the steam do the rest for 10-15 minutes. There are ways to enhance the effectiveness of the steam which are natural and will promote healthier skin if used correctly. Some of the tricks involve putting salt into the boiling water and using baking powder after to wipe off all the impurities.

When the water is finished boiling, you must put your face a few inches away from the steam and leave it there. A word of caution however, you do not want to burn your skin. The high temperatures from the steam can actually damage your skin and blood vessels, therefore if you feel your skin becoming too hot, move your face away for a few seconds and then return. The simple act of moving away will let some steam evaporate and the temperature will be lower after.
