Blog Posted on October 19, 2010 : Have u Done Facial Steaming
Sometimes no matter what skin care you use, your skin still appeared dull. This is due
to poor circulation and clog pores....
Home DIY Facial Steaming will cleanse the skin of all surface dirt, stimulates the circulation
and unclogs blocked pores. If your skin is dry, do a facial steaming once a week. You can do
facial steaming twice a week if you have very greasy skin.
To make your facial steaming more beneficial, add 1 drop rose geranium and 1 drop
eucalyptus/lavendula vera into the water. Steam your face for about 2 mins. Some
blackheads will come out of the pores and it becomes easy to extract them.
Rose geranium oil has a balancing effect on the nervous system and
relieves depression and anxiety, while lifting the spirits and making the world
an easier place to live in. It has a balancing effect on the adrenal cortex and is
great for relieving stress. On the skin, rose geranium oil helps to balance the
secretion of sebum, clears sluggish and oily skins, while the antiseptic and
cicatrisant properties make this oil an effective aid to help with burns,
wounds, ulcers and other skin problems.
However using too high of a temperature for either of the following methods can do
more harm than good. Excessive steam can burn your skin so be careful and only do
what is comfortable for you. If you have sensitive skin or any skin conditions, it
is best to discuss with your doctor prior to facial steaming.
Step 1: Fill a bowl with approximately 3 cups of boiling water.
Step 2: Always cleanse your face prior to steaming. This rids your face of surface dirt
and prevents it from getting absorbed by your skin. Pat skin dry, do not rub or tug at
your face. The key here is to be gentle.
Step 3: Keep your face at least one foot away from the steam. Add the oil. Use a towel
over your head to form a tent around your head and the bowl of water. The steam should
feel warm and soothing. Remain under the towel for 2 mins. If the steam is too hot or
you are uncomfortable at any time, STOP IMMEDIATLEY!
Step 4: Rinse with cool water to close and tighten your pores. Followed with Lavendula
vera charcoal flora water, and hydrating face and eye mask..... No need to rinse off....
