After a deep cleansing routine and a good facial massage, the next step to skin care is steaming. Steaming dilates the pores and deep cleans
by bringing to the surface all the hidden grease and dirt. It also brings a glow on your face but should be avoided in the case of a sensitive skin. Steaming can be done with the use of an electric steamer or, alternatively, a basin filled with steaming hot
water. You may add herbs/flowers to the hot water. Cover your head with a towel to trap the steam and breathe in the vapours. The aroma of the herbs will stimulate a soothing and relaxed feeling. Once the pores are dilated, wipe the face with a tissue or damp
towel. Remove blackheads using a blackhead remover and sterilized cotton wool. Thereafter, apply a face towel dipped and rinsed in ice cold water. Leave on the face for 5 to 10 minutes and apply a good face pack.
