Steam is good for your skin because it open up your pores to let out the toxins and impurities. Whether you’re heading to the spa for a steam session or you decide to hit up the steam room after the gym, there are some things you can do to maximize your time in the steam to get the most for your skin. The key to improving skin health with steam is consistency. It doesn’t do much good in the long term just to go in a steam room once in a while. To effectively improve the health of your skin, try using a steam room three times a week for 15 minutes per session.
