I wouldn't waste too much money on one. While steam would help break up the sebum that your skin produces, it certainly isn't something that other products can't do just as well. I think you would have just as much (if not more) luck just getting on a good skin care regime. To answer your question though, yes I think you would see results for both acne and blackheads though.

The steamer CAN do stuff other products can't. I recommend for it. In fact, a steamer is something that you purchase once and can use it until it breaks, whereas with facial products, they run out and you'll have to find one that works.

Steamers do work, if it doesn't work for someone it's because of improper use techniques. If they didn't work they wouldn't by used by aestheticians at all.

Are you just trying to open up your pores to get rid of blackheads?

I've had success with Toner Tablets from Lush cosmetics. They come in vitamins C and E as well as Tea Tree oil. You simmer water, pour it in a shallow bowl and add the tablet. Then, take a towel and put it over your head (try not to inhale, you can stick your head out of the towel), letting the tablet dissolve.

Once the water cools a bit you can also take it and rub it on your face. It costs like $1.50 and leaves your skin smooth and soft!

That sounds great! Most times I just use water in facial steamer -- I'd like to try tea tree oil next time

Just a quick thought-- the most common tea tree oil sold (liquid form) is not water solvable... then the tablet solution method just comes handy!

I agree with Freddy. In addition, steam helps to increase blood circulation giving that temporary but pretty healthy pink glow.
But...
do you have to buy a facial steamer? Wouldn't boiling a hot pot of water and putting a towel over your head do the same trick?
Perhaps you could save your pennies and invest in a quality mud or sea mineral mask to deep clean or moisturize your pores after they have been opened by the steam.

Working up a good sweat opens up your pores and unclogs them. Just make sure to shower right afterward, otherwise all that oil and sweat sits on your skin and breeds bacteria.

Wouldn't it be just as good to use a toner after you get out of a steamy shower? are steamers and bowls of hot water, and toner tablets really necessary?
