Hold your face about 6 inches above the bowl and cover your head with a towel. Stay covered and steam your face for 5 to 10 minutes. Pat face dry.
MASK: Pick a face mask to suit your skin type: For normal to oily skin – choose a deep cleansing mask; For dry to sensitive skin – choose a hydrating mask. Smooth the mask over your face avoiding the eyes and mouth. Leave on for the recommended time. Rinse off.
TONE/FRESHEN: Gently wipe a cotton pad or cotton ball soaked with toner over your face to remove the last traces of the face mask. Allow your face to dry naturally, afterwards, your skin will feel cool and refreshed
MOISTURIZE: Moisturizers serve as an effective shield against cold weather, wind, and other elements and prevent the escape of natural moisture from the skin. Dot moisturizer over your face and neck; gently rub in.
