For a more deep clean, steam helps to open up your pores and loosen any built-up grime. Blackheads get softer when your pores are opened, which makes them simpler to eradicate. Your blood vessels widen and your circulation improves as a result of the heated steam and increased sweating. This increase in blood flow provides oxygen to your skin and nourishes it. An all-natural, healthy glow is the end result. Dead skin cells, germs, and other impurities that clog pores and cause acne can be released when your pores are opened. Steam enhances skin permeability, thus using skin care products after a steam bath will be more effective overall.
Wash your Face with a gentle cleanser.
Boil a pot of water on the stove, then reduce the heat until it's only simmering.
Transfer the water to a large bowl and let it sit for an additional five to 10 minutes. An ideal temperature for a steam cleanse is around 115 degrees Fahrenheit.
Position the bowl on a horizontal surface that you'll be able to lean over, like a counter or table.
Set your timer to go off after 10 min.
Drape your head, shoulders and the bowl with the large towel so that you create an enclosed space to trap the rising steam.
Lean your face close to the rising steam but not so close that you feel suffocated by the heat.
If you have dry or normal skin, oils such as lavender and jasmine are recommended. For oily skin, Natural Astringent such as Tea Tree and lemongrass can be added to the water.
