“Facial steaming has a myriad of benefits – cleaning, reducing inflammation, and preventing breakouts. While modern-day steaming is an indispensable part of a DIY facial spa, the ritual has been present since the time of Ayurveda. Bathing in steam hammams and elaborate steam baths with botanicals, oils, minerals, and clay has always been in the ritual of the royals. Steaming opens your pores and allows natural oils within the skin to flow. It gently hydrates the top layer of the skin and makes it more permeable, allowing products to penetrate the skin easily. Steaming before applying toners, serums or moisturisers can help the products absorb better. Including steaming in one’s skincare regime can help make skin look firmer and younger as it increases circulation and helps in the production of collagen and elastin. The extra blood flow also helps deliver oxygen to the skin, which is nourishing” says Dr. Jushya.
