Steam Your Face in a Massage Treatment

In a massage treatment, steaming your face helps to open your pores as well as aiding circulation in your face, leaving your skin clean, flushed and glowing. It's an easy natural way to give yourself a facial at home, and it won't cost you a dime.

Bring a small pot of water to a boil. A basic steam involves nothing but water and your skin. It doesn't require much water. Fill up a small pot with 1 - 2 cups of water and bring it to a full boil.

Massage your face. While the water is heating up, massage your face using a gentle cleanser. Be sure to remove all of your makeup and any dirt, oil or sweat that's sitting on the surface of your skin. It's important that your skin be clean when you steam it. Your pores will open wide, and if you have dirt or makeup on your skin, it could cause irritation.

Don't massage your face with an exfoliating scrub or harsh soap. Before a steam, it's best to massage with a very mild cleanser, to reduce the chance that the steam treatment will further irritate your skin.

Pat your face dry with a soft towel.

Pour the steaming water into a bowl. If you're doing the steam treatment as part of an at-home spa treatment, pour it into a big, pretty ceramic or glass bowl. If you just want a quick steam, you can leave it in the pot. Place whatever vessel you're using on a few folded towels on top of a massage table.

Add essential oils or herbs. Now's the time to add essential oils or herbs to the water to make the treatment a little special. If you add oils or herbs, the steam treatment will double as an aromatherapy session. Just a few drops of essential oils goes a long way.

Steam your face with a towel over your head when enjoying the Dubai Massage. Drape the towel over your head so that it drops down on either side of your face, trapping the steam so that it concentrates near your skin. Place your face close enough to the steaming water to feel it massaging your face, but not so close that your skin feels like it's burning or you're having trouble breathing fresh air.

Draw the dirt from your pores with a mask. The steam treatment leaves your pores wide open, making this the perfect time to draw out the dirt and other impurities. The best way to do so is to follow your steam treatment with a clay mask. Smooth the mask over your face and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. massage it away with warm water and pat your face dry with a towel.

Tone your face. After you rinse your mask away, use a facial toner to help your pores close back up. Apply it to your face in gentle strokes using a cotton ball.

Lemon juice makes a great natural toner. Mix 1 tablespoon with 1 cup of water.

Apple cider vinegar is another great option. Mix 1 tablespoon with 1 cup of water.

Moisturize your face. Steam and heat cause the skin to dry out, so it's important to follow your treatment with a good moisturizer. Use one made with soothing oils, aloe and butters that will prevent your skin from getting too dry. Let the moisturizer completely absorb into your skin before applying makeup.
