Steam facial Method – Benefits
Steaming dilates the pores. Steam penetrates and deep cleanses the pores, bringing to the surface all the hidden grease and dirt. Steaming brings out a lovely glow on your face instantly, an effective treatment for a fresh shine on face. Skip the weekly steaming process, if you have a dry, sensitive skin.
Use the steam electric unit for steaming. Alternatively, you may use a basin filled with steaming hot water. You may like to add herbs or flowers to the hot water. Steep herbs/flowers in hot water for five minutes. However, if you have a lot of blackheads, throw in a few crystals of camphor BP instead of herbs. Bend over basin. Cover your head with a towel to trap the steam inside. Close your eyes and hold your head as close to the steam as you can without any discomfort. Breathe in the vapours.
The aroma of the herbs will stimulate a soothing, relaxed feeling. Allow the vapours to streak down your face. Once your pores are dilated with the steaming process, wipe the face with a tissue or a damp cotton wool. Remove blackheads by gently pressing it, using a blackhead remover and sterilized cotton wool. Splash with warm water and follow it with icy cold water. You may apply a face mask now.
