How to Steam Treat for Acne

How to Steam Treat for Acne by By eHow Fashion, Style & Personal Care Editor

Steaming the face is the best way to start a facial treatment. It opens pores, allowing any impurities to soften and makes extraction easier. It also provides the moisture that your skin craves. To top it all off, steam treatment for acne allows you to just sit relaxed with your eyes closed.

Step 1:
Find a large pot and fill it two-thirds full of water. Put the pot on the stove and wait for it to begin boiling.

Step 2:
Add natural acne healing remedies like essential oils or whole herbs to the water just as it begins to boil.

Mint helps to loosen dirt and oil in pores and the fresh scent clears sinuses. Rose hips release vitamin A, known for its regenerative properties.

Lavender is not only relaxing, but has anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Step 3:
Remove the pot from the stove after a few minutes of rapid boiling. Place it on a trivet or hot pad on a table where you can comfortably sit, like a kitchen table.

Step 4:
Drape a towel over your head. Choose one that is large enough to cover your entire head and still hang over the sides of the pot, like a bath towel.

This helps to create a steam bath by keeping the vapors inside the towel's tent rather than allowing the steam to escape into the room.

Step 5:
Place your face directly over the pot of water, keeping it far enough away so the steam doesn't burn the skin.

Close your eyes and breathe the steam in. If it becomes too hot, simply take your face away from the steam and come back to the steam as soon as you can.

Step 6:
Allow the steam and natural acne treatment to saturate your skin, penetrating any existing acne, for 10 minutes or until the water has cooled.

Step 7:
Begin an extraction process or finish the steam treatment by rinsing your face with cool water to close the pores
