As hard as we try, our DIY facials are never as thorough as their professional counterparts. Sure, we might follow the same steps (i.e. cleaning, exfoliation, extraction and hydration), but one key component is always missing: The steam. We’ve gone as far as to microwave wet towels and place them on our face to get the pore-opening benefits, but let’s be honest, it’s not the same. This has all changed with the introduction of Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare’s Steamer Solutions, and you now can treat yourself to the full facial experience in the comfort of your own home.
To start your home facial off on the right foot, simply kick back and relax for five to 20 minutes and let this steamer do its thing. Beyond opening your pores so it’s easier to get all that built-up gunk out, steam also helps hydrate skin and boost circulation for renewed radiance. This essential step also helps your other DIY facial products absorb better, so you can get their maximum benefits. At just $125, this beauty tool literally pays for itself after a few home treatments (since we all know professional facials can cost upwards of $100 each or more). And in our opinion, the Steamer Solutions experience is much more fabulous than standing over a bowl of boiled water with a towel over your head—but that’s just us.
