Face steam bath is often used in beauty salons to increase the effectiveness of your treatment. However, it is really worth it to introduce it into your at-home beauty routine because it helps with blood circulation, and made from specific herbs it can help with treating acne-prone skin.

You shouldn’t overdo it as it might be dangerous and ideally do it once in 7-10 days. The best brews that have antibacterial properties and at the same time are very hydrating are ones made of camomile or green tea. To prepare your skin for steaming wash it as usual with your favourite cleanser and then gently dry it with a clean towel without rubbing. The next step is preparing the brew, and then all you have to do is just sit, relax and bend over the steam. At the beginning I will advise you to do quite short steam baths and keep it to 5 minutes, just to let your skin get used to the heat. After a while, you can increase the time to a maximum of 10 minutes.

After that time your skin pores should open and your skin should be slightly red. Gently dry your face with a clean towel without rubbing to prepare it for the next step. That can be different depending on your preferences but you can either use a delicate face scrub or a mask. I would advise a mask, preferably a peel-off type to deeply cleanse the skin and to get rid of any blackheads that you may have. I usually use the Boscia black mask (I have written about it in my previous post) which apart from cleansing is quite illuminating and makes the skin feel great.
