DIY: At Home Spa Treatments- Lavender Steam
I am all about skincare. Specifically natural skincare. When I turned 18, my skin changed and turned into acne prone and sensitive skin and that is when my skin revolution happened. I started to do all sorts of research and discovered that my Neutrogena face wash contained all kinds of scary ingredients. I decided to make the switch to all natural skin products. And my skin has totally thanked me for it. It’s less irritated, more glowy (which everyone wants) and all-around healthier.
One of my favorite things to do when I am at hanging out at home is to pamper my skin. I take some time to pour myself a glass of red and give my skin some extra TLC. My at-home DIY Lavender Steam Facial is one of my favorite things to do. Lavender has so many skin benefits and it has such a lovely, relaxing smell. Perfect for a night in!
Here are the steps to achieving this super simple facial steam. Trust me, you’ll be addicted once you try it.
Boil some water in a tea kettle or pot.
Gather all accessories you need for the steam. You will need a deep bowl that is about the size of your face, a tablespoon, and a towel to drape over your head.
You will need dried lavender for this recipe. I bought some at my local natural health store, but you could order some as well.
Add the tablespoon of lavender into the hot water.
Move hair away from face and bend face near steam. Drape your head with a towel, so you lock in all steam and moisture and centralize it to your face.
Leave face steaming for 5 minutes and pat in excess water. Voila! You are all refreshed and glowing. The steam opens up your pores and gets out toxins. Lavender helps with acne scarring and redness, so doing this a couple of times a week will benefit you in the long run.
Please do comment if you try this recipe out, or send me some of your favorite skin care DIY’s. I’d love to hear from you.
Until next time,
