All About Face Steaming

Face Steam Works Wonders!!

Sis, It’s about time to step up your skincare game!

Facial steaming is a treatment that cleanses, nourishes the skin and feels luxurious!

Face steaming opens up your pores and helps loosen any buildup of dirt for a deeper cleanse. Opening up your pores also softens blackheads, making them way easier to remove. Removing blackheads while your skin is try will leave bruised and irritated skin.

The combination of warm steam, our natural herbs and an increase in perspiration dilates your blood vessels and increases circulation. This boost of blood flow nourishes your skin and delivers oxygen. The result is a natural, healthy glow.

The increased blood flow experienced during a steam facial promotes collagen and elastin production. This results in firmer, younger-looking skin.

Opening up your pores allows the release of dead skin cells, bacteria, and other impurities that clog the pores and contribute to acne.

Clogged pores cause acne itself. These may be attributed to:

  • excess production of oil (sebum)
  • bacteria
  • hormones
  • dead skin cells
  • ingrown hairs

Let’s dive into Sebum ... This is naturally occurring oil produced by your sebaceous glands to lubricate your skin and hair. When sebum gets trapped beneath your skin’s surface, it creates a breeding ground for bacteria and causes acne and blackheads.

Let’s face it, blackhead are gross, they make your skin look gross!

Face steaming hydrates the skin by helping to increase oil production, naturally moisturizing the face. It also increases the skin’s permeability, enabling it to better absorb topicals. This means you get more bang for your buck from skin care products applied after a steam.

How to use PamperedPrincess™️ Face Steam

Tools: Glass bowl, Towel & Face Steam Herbs

  1. Grab a towel and choose your spot. Comfort is key, so if you’re doing this over a sink you’ll want to use a chair or stool that offers the right height. Otherwise, a bowl on a table is your best bet.
  2. Bring 4 to 6 cups of water to a boil in a kettle or pot, depending on the size of the sink or bowl.
  3. Add two scoops/handful of herbs once the water begins to boil and stir.
  4. Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 2 or 3 minutes. Carefully pour into the bowl. If you’re using essential oils, this is the time to add a few drops to the water.
  5. Have a seat, drape your towel over your head and the pot, and hold your face 6 inches above the water.
  6. Raise or lower your head for more or less heat and lift a corner of the towel to cool off if needed.
