Does facial steaming good for oily skin?

In brief: Facial steaming

May open pores to ease removal of makeup & dirt, but if too hot or used too often may strip skin of natural oils; dry skin triggers production of more oil.
Washing face gently twice a day with mild moisturizing soap (dove/ tone/caress or lubriderm) & warm water & patting dry may work better (rough toweling can trigger release of more oil).
