herbal facial steam recipe

What is Steaming? 

It cleanses the skin, promotes circulation, and helps your skin absorb your skincare products. This is due to the fact that it opens your pores, when you have finished the steam, I recommend that you apply our Nitey Nite Oil followed by the 2B Organic Carrageenan Night Mask. You will get the most benefits from both of these products at this time.

Steaming the skin also provides light exfoliation and is a perfect start to your home spa night. If you really want a deep cleanse then start your spa steam night with Sweetie Pie facial scrub followed by the steam, Nitey Nite Oil, and the Carrageenan Night Mask. The small molecules of steam can easily penetrate the skin, locking in the herbs and moisturising the skin.

Steaming your skin if you have oily or clogged skin is the most beneficial as it softens the sebum that has clogged the pores and the herbs have an antibacterial effect on the skin. Steaming also makes it easier for the removal of blackheads.

Steaming is not recommended for people who suffer from acne rosacea, eczema, or psoriasis. 

How to make a Steam Bath for your face? 

Combine a handful of the mixture of dried herbs in boiling water (2 liters). Steam face over a big bowl of water with a towel for about 5 to 8 minutes.

Mix the following herbs and keep them in an air-tight bottle, in a dark cupboard.

3 cups of Trifolium pratense which is very good for the lymphatic system.

2 cups of Matricaria recutita or German Chamomile Healing which is very calming.
2 cups of Roses which is full of vitamins and minerals and good for inflammation on the skin.
