Pamper yourself with a Relaxing Steam Treatment 
that gently Removes Blackheads

Clogged pores can lead to acne breakouts and blackheads.
Steaming the skin opens pores so dirt and oils can be easily removed. 
After steam treatments exfoliate the skin to remove dead skin cells. 

1. Cucumber Steam Treatment
Cucumbers have a photo-chemical that heals, strengthens collagen and reduce inflammation. They also have bleaching agents that lighten dark skin patches while providing hydrating nutrients that are essential for health-looking skin. 
Instructions:  Slice a cucumber and drop pieces into a pot of boiling water. After a minute or so remove from heat and lean over the pot for about 5-10 minutes to open skin pore then splash complexion with cool water and moisturize. For dark circles and puffy eyes place a few slices over lids for 20-30 minutes to reduce inflammation. 

2. Sea Salt Steam Treatment
Salt is a natural healer, exfoliating medium, and disinfectant that draws out impurities in the skin. Soak in a warm water bath with sea salt or Epsom salt to help remove ingrown hairs without damaging the skin. 

Instructions:  Fill a pan with water then add 1/3 cup of sea salt and bring to a boil. Transfer into a bowl and hold face over the steam for about 10 to 15 minutes with a towel draped over your head to trap stream. Steam treatment recommended prior to exfoliating the skin to open pores for easier removal of blackheads

3. Skin Softening Facial Mask
Mayonnaise was recommended on the Dr. Oz show as a facial treatment to improve elasticity. Epsom salt is highly recommended for drawing out blackheads, impurities, and ingrown hairs. Carrots are packed with essential nutrients the skin thrives on whether applied topically or ingested.
