As In The Know recently reported, skincare and taking care of our skin promises to be a continued beauty trend in 2020. Although we preach about good sunscreen, serums, retinols and more to add to your beauty routine, we can assure you that celebrities are doing the same. One of the most recent spottings was Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (you know, from “The Get Down,” “Us,” and the upcoming “Candyman” remake?) enjoying a soothing facial using a facial steamer.
Unlike Yahya (who admitted he had no idea how long you actually need to steam), you only need 15-20 minutes to get results.
Facial steamers may seem like just another product editors tell you to buy, but they offer amazing benefits to the skin when used consistently. Steamers open up pores and loosen dirt and product buildup, resulting in a deeper cleanse and better product absorbency. Steam and sweat also dilate your blood vessels and increase circulation (sounds scary, but it’s the secret to that natural, healthy glow).

Other shoppers have raved on the quality of this facial steamer, in particular.
“I love this steamer! It heats up quickly and feels so nice and relaxing. I bought it with the intention of using it before face masks to make them more effective, and got the added bonus of my sinuses feeling so much better!” wrote one reviewer.
While finding a bad review was difficult, a few reviewers did mention being careful with the hot water inside the steamer. One reviewer noted, “The only thing I would suggest is that if it’s your first time using, only do about 1-3 minutes if you’re sensitive to heat… It’s just potent but worth the investment.”
While you’re home, you might as well focus on your skincare routine so that you have healthy, glowy skin, just like Yahya.
