Make a DIY Home Spa Steam Facial
Edited by Doug Collins, Eng
I would like to thank Emmy Weiss for the awesome video on How to DIY Home Spa - Steam Facial. I organized it into a wiki for anyone with a hearing impairment, or for those who just prefer to read the steps. Hope you enjoy it. :)
To start out, pull your hair back and secure with a hair tie or even with a headband.
The steam treatment is wonderful for dry and dull skin, it rejuvenates your skin by loosening up the dry areas and by sweating, it clears out your pores. You will need some old dish towels, and a wash towel.
A large pot filled with water started to boil.
Any herb or essential oil brand that you like, and a moisturizer.
First thing is to let the water heat to almost the boil. We don't want it to boil completely as it will be too hot.
Pour the hot water into the bowl.
At this stage, you can add any essential oils or herbs that you like.
It's great for memory and it has a great refreshing effect.
Allow your herbs and or oil to steep for a few minutes. Test the heat intensity by holding your hand above the bowl.
Take your large towel and place it on the table with the hot bowl on top. Use the smaller towel to wrap around your head and the bowl to trap in the steam.
For a Spa like an experience, you can turn off the lights, turn on the relaxing music and do some breathing exercises, stay for about 15 minutes .
As you can see here my headband came off during the steam. It looks little crazy.
Your face will be sweaty and even a little red which will fade in a little a while.
Pad off your face with a towel to dry, don't wrap as it will take away the moisturizing effect of the steam bath.
Now, apply your moisturizer.
Also, apply your moisturizing Lip Boom or a chapstick.
Make sure to drink a plenty of water as to replenish what you sweat out.
Notice how soft your skin feels? This treatment is great for dry skin.
So the best part of this treatment is that it's super safe to do even on a weekly basis.
I hope you guys try it out, have a wonderful lush day, see you later. Bye.
