How To Make Homemade Facial Steam Using Essential Oils

A facial steam will hydrate your skin and cleanse your pores.  When you add essential oils you will also enjoy additional benefits. It will soften your skin, act as an astringent, help heal skin lesions, and remove dirt or makeup from clogged pores. You will also enjoy aromatherapy benefits as well.

Steams can be enjoyed regularly on dry, oily, combination or normal skin. Avoid steams if you have sensitive skin, rosacea or sunburned skin.
