While you may have your own skincare routine, you've got to hand it to steamy facials for their ability to remove dirt, grime and bacteria from your skin. When you steam your face, it helps open up the pores in your skin which can help wash away any impurities that might be clogged into your pores. And normally, getting rid of these impurities can be a very big task but with the help of some steam, you can say goodbye to them easily.
Well, not all of you might be aware that there are different methods in which you can opt to steam your face. The reason why we're telling you this is because not everyone has all the tools they require for a facial at home and so they can use multiple other methods to steam their face instead. Here are three different ways in which you can do it.
- Using a bucket or boiler: If you're using a bucket, all you have to do is pour hot water in the bucket. For a boiler, you're going to have to put some water in and then heat it up. Add a few drops of essential oil to the water and when you see the water start to boil, put your face above the water and cover your head with a towel so that the steam doesn't escape and is directed towards your face. Let your face get steamed for 8-10 minutes and then allow your skin to air dry.
- Using a towel: Yes, did you know you could also use a towel to steam your face? Take a face towel and dip it in some hot water. Squeeze the towel until the excess water is drained and then place the towel on your face in a way that it covers your entire face. Let it sit for about 8-10 minutes and then pat your skin dry with a clean towel.
- Using a steamer: This is the easiest way to steam your face and requires almost no hassle. All you need to do is put some water into your steamer and turn it on. Then place a towel over your head and let your face get steamed. However, you must be careful not to burn yourself since the steam coming out of steamers is pretty strong. So, take a few breaks while steaming your face to give your skin some time to cope. Don't take the steam for more than 3-4 minutes.
Well, now that you have your options, what are you waiting for? Go give yourself a facial!
