There is no greater joy than going through your skincare routine. None. Nope. Not listening.
Sure, it may seem odd we get so much happiness from rubbing lotions and potions across our face - but listen hun, skincare is great for the SOUL.
Sundays have an extra special place in our hearts as we can take our time and even throw a sheet mask into the mix.
However, to really up the anti on your skincare routine, it's time to consider an at-home facial steamer.
Bring the spa to you, hun.
What are the benefits of a facial steamer, you ask?
Once your pores are open, it's easier to clean the skin and rid it of any congestion.
Facial steamers help soften skin and debris, making extractions and general cleansing more effective.
Less dirt equals more glow.
They can also help with premature ageing. Steamers increase the blood circulation in your face, which in turn stimulates collagen production.
Finally, facial steamers work to hydrate your skin. Just be sure to seal your skin quickly after with your favourite face mask or moisturiser to ensure it doesn't have the adverse effect, with your skin becoming dehydrated. Make sure to apply product as soon as you switch off the steam.
Facial steamers are safe, easy to use and ensure your skin is heated to the correct temperature to avoid damage.

When should I use the face steamer for best results?
Use after cleansing and exfoliating your skin. After you've steamed your face, remove any further debris with a clean damp flannel.
After using the steamer is the perfect time to try a sheet mask to get the maximum benefits. If not, apply your favourite moisturiser to seal in the hydration from the steam.
It's recommended you use a facial steamer once a week. Don't use more than two or three times a week to avoid skin irritation.
