Oily skin types are more prone to acne, pimples and breakouts, way more than any other skin type.
This mainly happens because of clogged pores, which are a result of excessive production of sebum and accumulation of dead skin cells.
Facial steaming can greatly benefit this skin type by unclogging the pores.
Steaming softens the surface layer and removes the dead skin cells. Also, it kills the bacteria and toxins that cause acne build-up and other breakouts on the skin.
Moreover, the warm humidity of the steam enhances blood circulation and is considered particularly great for the health of the skin.
