Facial steaming causes the skin to perspire, which in turn helps to loosen grime, dead skin cells, and hardened sebum. The heat increases the blood supply to the surface of the skin and also hydrates it, giving a more youthful, softer skin tone with a clearer, brighter color.
Steam not only opens the pores but also rejuvenates the skin’s layers and starts the cleansing process. If you don’t own a facial steamer, then making your own facial steam is as easy as it is simple.
1. Bring a pot full of water to a boil. Then reduce the heat and simmer about five minutes.
2. Secure the pot with the steaming water on the table (using a trivet or pot holder). You can also put a drain plug in your bathroom sink and fill it with the steaming water. Use 3-4 drops of essential oil.
3. Make a tent over your head with a clean towel and hang your head over the pot or the sink. Make sure you keep your face a safe distance from the water. Keep your face in the steam for 5 minutes.
4. Rinse your face with cool water.
5. Your pores are now open, and your skin is soft. It is time to clean your face. You can use a cleanser or exfoliator. And follow by toning your skin.
