We’ve all heard it said that steam opens skin pores. Well, that’s only partially true. Pores don’t actually open and close. But, skin can become softer and more supple. That last bit is the key to achieving clear and beautiful skin.
Anyone with acne will attest to the fact that caring for their skin is extremely frustrating. Food can set off a reaction, as can the weather (as in a hot and humid day), even the sweat from exercising can result in a break-out.
What’s a person to do?
The key to taking control of acne break-outs is to use very gentle skin cleaning methods. Many of the over-the-counter creams and soaps are abrasive and will likely result in irritated skin, which … you guessed it … can cause a sudden rash of pimples.
Dealing with acne is a teenager is one thing. Pretty much everyone deals with it then. But as an adult? Shouldn’t we have been able to bid goodbye to this problem?
Unfortunately, the sad truth is that acne can plague us our whole lives. So, I’ve come across a gentle cleaning solution that has been proven to work. Purify your skin’s pores with a steam shower!
A gentle and warm steam shower session softens your skin. While your skin is still soft and warm, spread a gentle exfoliating cream and cleaner over problem areas. Let the product remain on your skin for the prescribed amount of time. Rinse and dry carefully. Throughout the whole process, try not to pull at or rub your skin. Dab a soft towel across your skin instead.
Because steaming softens skin, the cleaning product you use will do a better job at loosening any dirt and dead skin. You’ll be left with soft, clear skin. Better yet, a steam shower experience is the ultimate in spa luxury. Relax and enjoy it – you deserve it!
