moisturizes the skin all day long making it feel fresh, alive, and healthy.
Heat or steam is known to be excellent for the skin as it helps open up the pores which makes the cleansing process more effective.
You can use a store-bought face steamer or boil water in a pot. If you’re using a steamer, wait for the water to heat and then cover your head with a towel.
Make sure that it covers either side of your face, so that the steam only concentrates on your skin. Place your face close enough to the steam but not so close that it feels like your skin is burning!
Continue this for 10 mins. This steam helps cleanse the pores from deep within. After the steam, take a blackhead removing tool and scrape off the blackheads and whiteheads from your nose,
forehead, chin, or wherever you feel the need to extract.
Make sure to use the tool immediately or else the pores will tighten if left to cool down.
Now your face is squeaky clean and ready for the next step!
