Back To Basics - Home Facial Steam Treat
Tuesday, February 01, 2011I get quite a lot of comments regarding my skin and not in a negative way but in a positive light which makes me really beam and continue on with my skin routine that I do. Mostly the basis of my skin routine is all basic and can be done at home with mostly everyday items.
Today I want to share with you the facial steam treat I give my face. Depending how my face is I may do this twice a week but it's rare too much heats never good.
I got the routine from a book Essence - Beauty Basics & Beyond I'd purchased this while I was in Jamaica in late 2009 and all last year this was my only facial steam treatment.
I do this twice a month just to give it a good clean. Today I was due for that.
You'll Need :
A Large Bowl
2 Tablespoons of salt
7 drops of peppermint essential oil - ( to be honest I don't recommend having that much, first time I put that much into the bowl, I could not breathe and my eyes didn't dare open) I recommend one drop (two at the most - might be pushing it.)
Pour your salt & your drop of peppermint oil into the hot water and of course put your head over the bowl with the towel making a tent.
Steam your face for two minutes and then give yourself a two minute break . Repeat this up to five times.
Then rinse your face with lukewarm water and this is the optional time to use a facial mask to reap the benefits of having the facial steam and opening those pores so slap on your current favourite lover face mask
Mine for quite a while has been Good Things - Five Minute Facial Face Mask - AMAZING!
Then after I had rinsed that off I decided to just do my Oil Cleansing Method as my skin seemed to need some repair.
