♨️ Similar to how a sauna can help to draw out toxins, dirt and grime from your body, a gentle facial steam clean offers the same benefits to your face.
To boost the effects of a facial steam clean you can add essential oils to the water. The therapeutic effects of the essential oil combined with the steam from the hot water will cleanse and soften the skin to help deliver active ingredients deeper into the layers of your skin prior to doing your AM or PM skincare routine.
- For oily, acne-prone skin
Tea tree oil is antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial will help heal acne and calm irritated skin.
- For dry and/or sensitive skin
Lavender oil is an ancient wound healing that helps to soothe even the most sensitive of skin types.
- For combination skin
Rose Geranium oil helps to tone, moisturise and even out skin tone.
Fill your skin with boiling water and add 1-2 drops of your preferred essential oil. Take care and do not exceed the maximum drops as the steam from the water will intensify the scent of the essential oil.
Place your head over the sink, be sure not to touch the hot water, cover your head with a towel and allow the vapour to steam clean your face for 10 minutes.
After 5-10 minutes remove the towel from over your head, pat dry your face and follow up with your regular AM or PM skincare routine.
