Step 3: Steam
With most of the dirt and dead skin cells having been scoured away, you’re all set to fully unclog pores with steam and prepare your skin for the final two steps. Scent the water with your favorite essential oil for an added aromatherapy bonus.
2 cups water
4-5 drops essential oil (optional)
In a medium pot, bring water to a boil, then remove from heat. Add essential oil if desired, then pour into a large bowl. Put a towel over your head and hold your face about 14 inches above the water, leaving a place for the steam to escape around the edges of the towel. Steam for 5 to 8 minutes, then gently pat your face dry.
