DIY Facial Steam

love-romantic-bath-candlelightAfter a long week, it is important to detox your skin from pollutants and the leftover makeup that may be trapped in your pores. Facial steaming machines can be expensive, but in this article I will teach you how to steam your face with ingredients in your kitchen, and things you can find around the house.

What you need: A pot, body towel, lemon, mint leaves

1.) Fill a large boiling pot a 1/4 of the way with cold, filtered water

2.) Cut a lemon in half and juice the half-lemon into the water, then thinly cut the squeezed half-lemon and put in 1/2 of the slices

3.) Add mint leave or flakes and heat on medium

It is important to monitor the water and to pull it off the heat before the bubbles begin to break the surface. Once you pull the heated mixture off the stove, place it on a folded (but stable towel) or on a pot rack. Hover your face above the mixture and drape a towel over your head, trapping in the steam. Do this for around 5-10 minutes and make sure your lips are well moisturized before this. Enjoy!
