I have recently started the habit of steaming my face regularly. 1. Does this increase circulation of blood in the face? 2. Is this a good thing, should I continue with it? Please advice.
Rahman, Bellary S teaming the face is a part of the facial procedure. It doesn’t increase blood circulation but results in dilation of the facial blood vessels, and the skin pores, and sweating as well. Steaming is a good pore cleansing practise, but avoid doing it excessively as it also stimulates the oil glands of the face. Together, open pores and overactive oil glands can contribute to acne.
