Preserve The Skin You\'re In

Steam rooms are a fun, relaxing way to feel like you are doing your body some good. In terms of the skin, steam rooms are not always your friend, as they tend to give off pretty intense heat and 100% humidity.

"For certain skin conditions like rosacea, where the skin already has a red appearance and stimulates all too easily, steam will cause a further dilation in capillaries making the skin even redder," celebrity aesthetician and skin care expert Renée Rouleau wrote on her blog.

While steam room usage would not be recommended on a regular basis for people with skin conditions such as rosacea or capillary damage, if you still want to enjoy a steam room Rouleau recommends holding a cold washcloth on your face to keep the temperature of the skin regulated.
