What is a facial beauty/beauty steamer?
As the word “steamer” suggests, a beauty steamer is one of the beauty appliances that can open pores and soften skin by applying warm steam to the skin.
By exposing your face and décolleté to the fine particles of steam from a beauty steamer, moisture can be delivered not only to the surface of the skin but also deep into the skin.
As a result, the skin becomes softer, and the subsequent penetration of lotion and serum into the stratum corneum is improved, which is expected to improve dry skin.
Effects of a beauty steamer
The beauty steamer facial skincare product has various effects other than those mentioned above. The main effects are
- It can treat pores.
- It has a moisturizing effect.
- Improves the penetration of serums and other products
These are just a few. Let’s check each of them in detail.
Pores can be treated
The steam from a beauty steamer warms the skin, making it easier to open the pores.
By opening the pores and lifting out the excess dead skin cells and plugs clogging the pores, the lotion and serum used in subsequent skin care can penetrate better.
A beauty steamer can deliver moisture not only to the surface of the skin but also deep into the skin by applying steam made of fine particles to the face and décolleté.
This allows the skin to stay moist for a long time and improves dry skin. However, the beauty steamer is not the only way to complete moisturizing.
Immediately after being exposed to steam, your skin will feel moisturized with water, but the steamer alone will leave your pores open, and if left unattended, your skin will easily become dry.
Make sure to moisturize your skin with lotion or serum immediately after use.
It can improve the penetration of serums and other products.
Immediately after applying the steamer, your skin’s pores will be cleaned and moisture will have reached the depths of your skin.
In addition, since blood circulation is improved and the skin is soft, the penetration of toner and serum into the stratum corneum can be improved.
Turnover is regulated
By using a beauty steamer, the dead skin cells on the surface of the skin are easily removed, and the skin’s metabolism will be smoother.
When the skin metabolism is smooth, the turnover will be normalized and you will be less prone to skin problems.
In this way, the beauty steamer helps to activate the turnover process.
As we age, the turnover cycle tends to slow down, so let’s use a steamer to activate it.
Makes it harder for makeup to fall off
When the skin is dry, it secretes too much sebum in an attempt to compensate for the lack of sebum.
When the skin is dry, it secretes too much sebum to compensate for the lack of sebum. By using a steamer to moisturize your skin, you can prevent dryness and control the secretion of sebum.
This helps prevent makeup from falling off. Using the steamer before applying makeup will help prevent makeup from falling off.
How to use a beauty steamer
- Keep the inside of the tank clean.
- I recommend using purified water!
- Frequency: 2 to 3 times a week
- Thoroughly moisturize after use.
Keep the inside of the tank clean
The steamer heats the water in the tank and discharges it as steam. Therefore, the inside of the tank is very humid. If you leave the water in the tank without disposing of it, bacteria will grow in the tank and cause mold to form.
It is also necessary to clean the inside of the tank regularly to keep it clean. The method of cleaning depends on the manufacturer, so follow the instruction manual and do it correctly.
Be careful about the water you use
Most steamers can be used with tap water. However, since tap water contains chlorine, it may cause chlorine to accumulate inside the tank. In such cases, it is recommended to use purified water.
It is also gentle to the skin.
Purified water is also gentle to the skin and can be obtained cheaply at drugstores, so we recommend using purified water to prolong the life of the steamer.
Frequency of use
The frequency of use of the steamer depends on the condition of your skin, but for the first few times a week is a good rule of thumb. Once you get used to it, you can increase the frequency. It is important to use it according to the condition of your skin.
Care after use
Immediately after exposure to steam, your skin will look moisturized, but the steamer alone will leave your pores open, so moisturize your skin immediately with lotion or essence.
It is also important to cover the skin with a cream after the moisture has been thoroughly absorbed and moisturized. And then use facial massager to prove the absorption of the cream.
How to use a steamer at different times
Now that you know the various benefits of using a steamer, let’s take a look at how to use it. Now, let’s take a look at when exactly you should use it and how to use it.
Use before makeup
If you want to use the steamer’s steam before applying makeup, make sure you take care of your skin before using it. To avoid drying out your skin, it is recommended to use a sheet mask on your face.
By thoroughly moisturizing your skin with the steamer, you can not only prevent makeup from falling off, but also improve the luster of your skin.
Use before skincare
Applying steam from the steamer to your skin before applying skincare can improve the penetration of cosmetics.
The warm steam will open up the pores of your skin, allowing the beauty ingredients to penetrate properly and make your skin glow.
If you can also use cold steam, please add a firm pore tightening treatment. A massage will also help improve the skin’s color.
Use before cleansing
Applying warm steam to your skin before cleansing will help open your pores. As the pores open up, the dirt and makeup will naturally rise to the surface, allowing you to remove makeup without having to scrub.
This is recommended for people who want to remove makeup gently on their skin.
In addition, cleansing and cleansing may leave makeup residue on the skin, but adding the steamer will help prevent skin problems because it can clean off the dirt that cannot be removed.
