The skin on the face is not possible to be cleansed perfectly with preparations for cleaning and washing, but face steaming is helping, an old method which is almost completely forgotten.
Russian MTV presenter Anita Bhoumik reminded us of this method, thanks to which she has a perfectly clean facial skin.
“To open pores, put your head under a towel and over hot water previously placed in a large basin for a couple of minutes. But be careful, the water mustn’t be very hot to avoid burn marks. Then wash your face. The effect is much better than when you just wash it because the pores are much better cleaned in this way, “explained Anita for Huffington Post about the method that has learned from her father.
Steaming the face, despite the various face products, it remained definitely as a very important technique and was used even by the ancient Romans.
The advantages are many – opens up the pores, removes dead cells, helps against acne and problematic complexion and improves the circulation.
Clean the face with steam and repeat the procedure at least every two weeks:
– First clean your make-up.
– Pour the boiling water into a large pot and keep your face over it (not too close to avoid burning from steam)
– Put a larger towel over head.
– Wait couple of minutes.
– If you want you can put in the water some calming tea as chamomile for example.
– Then rinse well with cold water and apply a cream.
If you are suffering from skin diseases that cause redness, if your skin is prone to redness or you have sensitive capillaries avoid this method. Also, if during the steaming you feel any discomfort, immediately stop this procedure.
