One of our favourite beauty sites, Cult Beauty, predicted that facial steaming would be a big beauty trend for 2016 and it turns out they were right. Here’s why we love the Rio Facial Sauna and Steamer.
Beauty Steaming is a new way of cleansing and gently exfoliating your skin without aggravating sensitive skin. You can use plant essences within the steam to carry them deep into your pores without worrying your skin in any way. It also plumps and moisturises, opening your pores naturally – ready for your serum and moisturiser to seal them again.

Benefits of facial steaming
You’ve probably heard many times that steaming “opens” your pores, allowing dirt to get out. Pores are not like your eyelids; they don’t open and close on command. However, steaming does help unclog pores by clearing away the dead skin cells that are plugging them up.
If you have severe acne, however, steaming can sometimes make it worse, so it’s good to check with your doctor before undergoing any face steaming treatment.
Facial steaming can help hydrate and soften the outer skin layer, enhancing penetration of active ingredients into the skin.
Facial steaming helps to boost hydration, which means it has a soothing, smoothing effect, and it also boosts radiance.
Heat and steam may trigger “facial flushing,” so anyone prone to redness may want to steer clear of face steaming.
Steaming has other therapeutic purposes. It can be used to reduce nasal congestion when you have a cold.
Simply add a drop of mentholated balm to the water and then breathe in the steam for a few minutes.
