From what I understand, hot water and steam are good if you are clean. Dermatologists suggest that you wash your face before you take a shower because the heat and steam open your pores and allow the dirt to slide right it. So I would suggest if you're going to steam, wash your face then take a shower, and then steam....Ha ha ha ...Sounds like a lot of work. Good luck!-
Steam and heat has really helped me with my skin. I went crazy and bought a steam shower and it has been great. The steam really seems to keep the dirt out of the pores and my skin is not all dry from the cold winter air. It's really great. :!:
Acne is caused by dead skin cells that get trapped in the skin follicles, and being in a hot sauna will help to open up those skin follicles and allow the body to sweat out all of the acne. It is recommended to sit in a sauna for twenty minutes a day. It only works for some people as every person is different.
