Learning how to prepare a home steam facial will not only make you save money, it will also help fight acne, diminish fine lines and wrinkles and cleanse skin impurities.

At Home Facial Steam: The Boil Method

One of the most common at home facial steams is the boil method. But what does this imply exactly? The answer's simple! You should boil half a pot of water on your stove. Once the water has started boiling, turn down the temperature until all the bubbling goes away. You can add essential oils into the water if you like, such as rose or tea tree oil, depending on your skin type.

Afterwards, take a dry towel and place it over the back of your head. Lean over the pot and put your face about 10 inches away from the steam because if you get closer, you might risk burning. Steam your complexion over the pot for about 30 minutes.
