Skincare: Face Steaming

 

All types of skin types can benefit from using steam to cleanse your skin. By using steam to clean your skin you will be removing all surface dirt, and also stimulating your skin and unclogging blocked pores. If have dry skin, try steaming your face once a week. If you suffer from oily skin then you can steam your skin every day. There are Electrical devices that are on the market that produce steam; this process is called Sauna Facial.

Steaming can be done by leaning over a large bowl of boiling water (please be careful), by covering your head with a towel and making a tent around the bowl. The steam will open up your pores, and loosen blackheads. Please do not get to close to the boiling water, because if the steam is too hot, it might cause broken veins. To make steaming your skin more beneficial, add a tablespoon of herbs to the water. Elderflower and chamomile are my favorites. You can also try lavender, thyme and rosemary for a stimulating cleanse. These herbs smell so good, your house will smell good also. Steam your face for about ten to twenty minutes. By steaming blackheads come out of the pores and it becomes easy to extract them.

 

 

If you suffer from pustular acne, I would not advice steaming as the steam and heat can spread the infection. If you have been extracting blackheads use a facemask containing curds, kaolin, cucumber or comfrey, as these are astringent and healing.

 

Sharing is caring to me so listed below are 2 of my favorite facial steaming recipes:

 Aging Skin:

After bringing a pot of water to a boil add
1 tablespoon of rosemary herbs (fresh or dried)
1 tablespoon of chamomile flowers (fresh or dried)
1 drop of frankincense essential oil

Transfer to a heat safe bowl and place on flat countertop. Immediately drape a towel over your face, shoulders, and bowl, keeping your face about 10-18 inches from the steam.

Enjoy 5-10 minutes of steam and then follow with a mask, serum or moisturizer while your skin is still damp.

 

Dry Skin:

After bringing a pot of water to a boil add:
3 drops of Jasmine oil
3 drops of Chamomile oil


Transfer to a heat safe bowl and place on flat counter. Quickly drape a towel over your face, shoulders, and bowl, keeping your face away from the steam.

Enjoy 5-10 minutes of steam and then follow with a mask, serum or moisturizer while your skin is still damp.
