Infused Facial Steam
Steaming your face: opens the skins pores for easy removal of dirt, dead skin cells, toxins, stimulates blood circulation, provides a refreshed appearance, re-hydrates the outer layer of skin as well as opens up clogged nasal and sinus passages.

- A pot to boil the water
- 2 mint teabags
- Fresh/dry Hibiscus flowers (optional)
- Peppermint Essential Oil (optional)
- A bowl to put the water after it has been boiled
- I bring 5 cups of water to a boil and reduce to a simmer.
- Steep 2 mint teabags while the water simmers for 5 minutes.
- I remove the teabags and take the water off the fire.
- I transfer the water to my bowl.
- Add a couple of hibiscus flowers to the water. (optional) – you can use any flowers.
How I steam:
- I hold my face about 10-12 inches away from the bowl with a towel draped over my head to hold in the steam. (Always be sure to keep your face far away enough so you do not burn your skin yet close enough to get the steam).
- After 10 minutes I stop, dab my face with a face cloth and follow up with my Scrub.
Do you pamper yourself to a steaming session? If so how often?
