Skin Care Tip: Steaming first

submitted by Mindy Hine, Trevoroton, PA USA

Tip description / details:
Before I go to bed I always steam my face over chamomile tea. Just steep three bags of tea for five minutes. Steam your face holding a bath towel over your head. Then exfoliate right away while the pores are open. This gets the dirt and bacteria out of the pores. Then use whatever product you have for your acne. The steaming turns my face into a sponge and the products I put on right after absorb faster so that makes them work better. My mom tried this before she put on her night cream and couldn't believe the difference. Hope this helps someone.
