I heard and read about steaming alot and I am in my 2. week of the Acne.org Regimen.
Now my question is: Can i steam my face 1-2x a week and use the regimen right after? Has anybody here ever tried this out?
Thanks for all the answers.
actually i started using steam for my acne 2weeks b4...and i must say that is so usefull andwill make u happy!!!...What i do is squeeze about two spoons worth of lemon juice into a glass. Then dab the lemon all over my face, not too much though because lemon is very acidy and it may sting. I boil some water, pour it into a bowl and steam my face with a towel over my head. This way the pores open up wide and the lemon's magical vitamins are absorbed into the skin. The following day my skin is virtually clear.
I have not yet brought a Facial Steamer but looking at the reviews i may . I do recommend this as i notice just by showering and turning the shower up so its fairly hot and putting my face up right to the shower head whilst the water is running reduces the redness and cleans my skin out.
I have my own facial steamer that I brought from Argos for less than £15 and I have to say its money well spent! I use it once a week for around 10-15 minutes and it really is affective! It makes your face drip like hell, but once the sessions over clean your face with a gentle cleanser and you can see results of calmer looking skin after just one use! Sometimes youll notice you may gain a spot or two the next couple of days, but thats the spots coming from the inside out so there out of your system for in the end cleaner healthier skin. I highly recommend steaming for anyone, thats why they have steam rooms in Spa's and make you spend £15 a session!
I've always had really bad acne. ALWAYS. After I found a good face wash and moisturizer that started helping my skin I began also streaming my face and this for sure helped clear up the rest of my acne. And I do it about one every week.
After steaming, it's important to keep face muscles super relaxed and skin not taut during washing. This allows wash to deeply penetrate pores and allows dirt and oil to wriggle out of pores as your fingers rub and massage over them. This simple technique which made such a huge difference.
if you have asthma or breathing problem do not use it and if you do be careful
you should only do this once a week because doing this too much will not help your face at all
HOW TO STEAM YOUR FACE
1.boil some water make sure it hot
2.get a mat or book and put the pot on it
3.(optional)get you favorite essential oil to put in the water add a few drops
4.get a towel and a tent like think and put you head under the towel you should do this for ten to fifteenth minutes
after that splash cold water on your face to close the pores and put on BP and or moisturizer to your face as usually
I steamed my face about once a week for a month or two because it would clear up my skin really good for a few days. But I noticed that I would get 1 cystic acne spot a few days later every single time. And they were huge and horribly painful. Once I stopped steaming, I stopped getting a cystic acne spot weekly.
This is the best thing I've ever done for my face. I have combination skin, and light-moderate acne.
What I do is wash my face with a gentle cleanser (I love Cetaphil!) plug my sink, and then fill it with water as hot as it will go. My sink (as well as most sinks) has a hole towards the top so the sink can't overflow. I leave the water running, and put my head about an inch away from the water. I put a towel over my head to keep the steam in. I do this for about 10 minutes. Afterwards, I use St. Ives Green Tea Scrub, apply salicylic acid spot treatment (currently Clean and Clear advantage) and then my Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture for Combination Skin moisturizer
This cleared my skin SO much. I wouldn't say I'm totally clear, but a lot clearer than I was before.
If you start breaking out really bad, just remember it's normal. It'll only last a day or two, and you'll be happy you tried!
I use a face steamer, and I must say it works fairly well with my acne pron skin. I had got my face clear, but started slacking off, and u know what happens next. When I started back on my face regimen; my products did not seem to work that well like usually. Just a couple days ago I started back steaming my face along with my regimen, and its working very fast again. I now know that the steam makes my regimen work wonders. STEAMING WILL NOT CLEAR YOUR SKIN ALONE. Some tips I can give is to not pat your face dry with a towel (let it air dry), wash your face LIGHTLY (use a very small amount) with a gentle face wash (ex. Noxzema) before steaming; to let the steam penitrate, and after to remove the impurities that come out. After this put on your fav. acne treatment, and you'll see how much better it works. Not to mention that the steamer is very moisturizing. I never moisturize my face in fears of breaking out. If u suffer from dry skin (probably from harsh products); you'll love this. Not to mention u don't have to steam that long (maybe 5-10 mins). That's all the tips I have, if u do any of them make sure to wash your face after steaming (I recommend not just water, but a wash). You want to get all the impurities off your skin. Hope this helped. O and if u want to know a good after treatment (leave on); look into de la Cruz sulfur (its cheap and awesome). If not yogurt works great 2. I did not put a price because u don't have 2 pay for it. U can get a pot, fill it with water, let it boil, and steam that way with a towel over your head to trap in the steam.
