How do facial steamers work?

Accoring to celeb skincare expert and aesthetician Renée Rouleau, most people have the wrong idea about how steamers work. She says:

You probably think of steamers as a way to soften and open the pores—that’s not the case, as pores aren’t like doors. Steamers help to make manual extractions easier to prevent too much stress on the skin.

She says a major benefit of using facial steamers is increasing blood circulation to the skin which makes oxygen flow to the surface, thus feeding the skin cells with new nutrients. Renée says you should always cleanse before steaming, then use serum and moisturiser to ensure your face is well hydrated.
