  • Steaming of face...

    I used to steam my face once in a blue moon by putting my head over a basin of freshly boiled water with a towel covering my head to trap the steam. I started steaming more often now that I bought the Philips Visasauna(facial steamer), and it is really very refreshing!
    Steaming really opens up the clogged pores and allow easy removal of the blackhead and gunk. :puke:
    It improves blood circulation to the skin, i always look more radiant after a steam!
    I steam my face like 3-4times a wk! and i feel that it is helping my skin in some ways. My skin feels more supple and hydrated, i have lesser clogged pores, skincare products applied after the steam is absorbed more quickly and penetrates the skin better.
    I steam my face for abt 10-20 mins each time, depending on how much time i have. I would encourage all of you to try it if you have the time!

      How much is the Philips Visasauna you mentioned? Anyway, you'll be amused, but I use my food steamer(you know the one where people use to steam corn and rice dumplings?) to steam my face (wahahaha i know) I just wash the steamer really clean and open the lid of the steamer, heat it up, then stand over it. it works just as well you know! :ROFL:

      but for convenience's sake, I'm gonna buy one for my face.

        Its abt $49, but i think i saw some places selling it slighty cheaper. Its a gd investment if you plan to use it regularly.

          hahaha.... the most hilarious part is when I steam my face with my food steamer, then apply an egg-white mask to tighten pores, my husband is always laughing at me about this, he says why don't I apply the egg white, then steam with the egg white on, then i get to eat steamed egg white after that.. :wheee:

            Wow! this is so funny! I need to control my laughter...wouldn't want to be caught smiling so loud in the office but i'm already smiling while reading at this!!! :ROFL:

            I don't like the idea of steaming my face. My face feels very warm after doing it. I have tried it at a beauty salon...just don't like lying there for 15 mins steaming my face.

            Just my 0.02 ...

                  think it's not good to steam your face too often... i read this hk magazine where a dermatologist said that steaming your face may actually accelerate collagen loss from skin so skin becomes less firm over time.... i used to do the towel+bowl trick quite often to get rid of blackheads too but a bit scared to do so now....

                    i also used the towel and bowl method but i was afraid that the hot steam may sort of hurt the sensitive eye area. how does the facial steamer work? anyone using it now? is it good?

                              i do steam my face too but only when i feel i need it. a little tip is to add things like lavander etc (which can be bought in flower tea places) for the aroma therapy effect
