How many times have you given yourself a steam facial? I think the only time I have done it is with a pot of boiling water and a towel over my head to keep the steam on my face. And does the shower count? Neither seem to be a great way to do it but up until now I’m not aware of many choices.
Steam can help give skin a deep cleaning by opening up pores to let whatever you are applying afterward really get in there to do its work.
I was sent this PANASONIC Facial Ionic Steamer ($179.95 @ amazon.com) to try out recently and some of the benefits of it are that is uses nano-sized moisture particles to penetrate and gently open pores, so this one gets deeper into the skin than the now seemingly barbaric way of steaming the face that I mentioned, right?
When I first saw the sleek design, I thought you put your whole face into the rose colored part of the machine but no, you don’t. Just sitting in front of it is fine.
It stands a little over 8” tall and about 5” at its widest point so it’s pretty small overall. There is a reservoir that you fill up with water – all the way full will get you 6 minutes and half full will get you 3 minutes of steam.
Is this something you find you could add to your at-home regimen?
