DIY Green Tea Rose Facial Steam

Updated on October 11, 2014

Treat yourself to a facial steam with green tea.

Treat yourself to a mini facial at home. A facial steam is an essential and easy step in proper skin care. Steaming opens up your pores, removes toxins, and leaves you with a cleaner and clearer complexion. It's very easy to do at home and can be done on a weekly basis. This green tea steam is one idea; you can also do a DIY aromatherapy steam or use herbs to steam your pores.

Green Tea Facial Steam Recipe

With loose or bagged green tea and dried rose petals, you can create a simple steam that refreshes your face, opens your pores, and removes toxins. To make your green tea facial steam, follow these steps:

1. Place one to two cups of water in a pot. Add one tablespoons of loose green tea or one tea bag. Also add one tablespoon of dried rose petals.

2. Heat the mixture until bubbles begin to rise up from the bottom of the pot and the mixture is visibly steaming.

3. Cover the pot and allow the tea and rose petals to steep in the hot water for 5-10 minutes. This way, you get the full benefit of green tea and rose petals.

4. Step over the hot pot of green tea-rose mixture, and uncover it. Learn over the pot, placing a towel around your head to create a steam tent. Steam your face for 5 minutes.

5. Reheat the water gently if you no longer feel steam.

If the water gets too hot, it can scald your skin. When using water for a facial steam, it should never come to a boil. If you are too hot, open the steam tent to allow some steam to escape or lift your face further away from the pot.
