The Secret of Flawless Skin: Herbal Facials

Home steam facials not only hydrate your skin and help clean pores, they’re wonderfully relaxing and a great way to de-stress..It’s a good idea to not overdo steam facials.. Limit yourself to 1 or 2 steam facials a week (maximum), less if your skin is sensitive.

Home Facials Preparation

  • Clean face thoroughly and tie hair back so it won’t hang loose around your face.
  • Boil a kettle or pot full of water then add the herbs and fruity ingredients (about 1/3 cup fresh or dried herbs and fruit slices per 4 cups of water). Boil for a minute or two then remove from heat. Cover and let steep for about 5 minutes.
  • Place pot on counter or table and remove lid. Cover your head with a large clean towel and position your face over the steaming water.
  • Keep your eyes closed and your face at least 10 to 12 inches from the boiling water during the facial. Enjoy the fragrant steam and relax, but don’t overdo it–keep the facial time between 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Once the facial is over, splash face with slightly cool water and pat dry.
  • You can apply a home-made face mask after this and wash it off in 15 minutes.
