Facial Steaming Recipes

A good old facial steam is a great way to unclog pores and detox your skin. Here at Bare Beauty we are especially fond of the herbal steam baths. Nothing better than going out and picking a bunch of herbs from your garden and sitting over a bowl of steaming water for 5 minutes. Its a great way to get a bit of ‘Me’ time as well 🙂

~ Dry Skin – To prevent over drying (funnily enough) don’t steam your face for more than 5 minutes. Once a week is a good routine to get into. Great herbs to steam with that help dry skin are rosemary, rose petals, chamomile, comfrey along with borage flowers. Fennel seeds are a good addition too.

~ Mature Skin – Again, don’t steam for more than 5 minutes to prevent over drying. To specifically treat aging skin, try dandelion root, comfrey, chamomile, lavender and rose petals. Also try dabbing a vitamin A and E around eyes and wrinkles before steaming.

~ Oily Skin – Include oils for addressing excess oil production as well as soothing inflamed acne ridden skin. Herbs include lemongrass, lavender & rosemary. Add eucalyptus leaves if you have acne skin. Strawberry and sage leaves are also beneficial.
