Steaming your face on occasion is great for your skin because the warm steam causes your face to sweat, which opens your pores and helps soften the surface layer of dead skin cells. This releases dirt and debris from your pores that would have remained trapped and could have potentially caused acne breakouts.
Learn how to do a steam facial at home.
There are steam facial machines you can buy online but say you can’t afford one or you just refuse to buy one this is the affordable way to do a steam facial at home.
Step 1: You will need 4 items. A large bowl, a towel, essential oil, and boiling hot water. If you don’t have a large bowl you can use a large pot from your kitchen. Essential oil is not a must but it helps soothe your face during the steam facial.
Step 2: Wash your face with a cleanser so you can remove excess dirt and debris.
Step 3: Add the hot water and essential oil to the bowl and set it down on a table or somewhere you can sit down in front of comfortable for at least 15 minutes.
Step 4: Set a 15 minute timer on your phone.
Step 5: Put your face over the bowl and then put the towel over your head and the bowl. You want to make sure that no steam is escaping.
Step 6: Relax! In the beginning you might find it hard to breathe in the hot air. If you relax and breathe slowly you will get used to it and be able to fully relax and enjoy the steam facial.
Step 7: After 15 minutes your steam facial will be over and your skin will most likely be red but, this is totally normal. After the redness goes away your skin will feel so refreshed and look moisturized.
Step 8: Wash your face again so you can completely remove any dirt and debris that were released from your pores during the steam facial.
Step 9: Moisturize! Right after I wash my face I’ll leave a bit of water on my face and add a little coconut oil to moisturize my face.
Step 10: Repeat the previous 9 steps once every 6 weeks.
