DIY At-Home Herbal Facial Steaming

Do you struggle with congested, dehydrated skin or breakouts? Many of us deal with skin issues and one great (and inexpensive) way to deep clean and hydrate your skin is giving your face good steaming. Steaming your face is almost like steaming your body, it provides a good deep cleanse from the inside out. Facial steaming will make your pores sweat causing them to open allowing any dirt and oil to be pushed out. Afterwards, you are left with soft, supple and refreshed skin and your pores will be less visible. Facial steaming is easy, you can do it at home and requires no special equipment or products. Just follow the simple steps below to create your own herbal facial steam…


  • Boiled Water
  • Glass Bowl
  • Herbs (such as rosemary, mint or lavender)
  • Essential Oils (optional)
  • Towel


  1. First, wash your face with your favorite cleanser.
  2. Then bring a pot of water to a full boil. Remove pot from the heat and add the herbs (such as rosemary, mint, lavender or chamomile) and your choice of essential oils (optional) to your bowl then add the hot water.
  3. Place your face over the bowl (about 6-8 inches above the bowl) and drape the towel over your head to trap the steam. It shouldn’t feel uncomfortable, but if it does, move your face further away from the bowl until it feels comfortable.
  4. The steam should disappear after about 10-15 minutes. After, rinse and pat your face dry then follow up with your favorite mask and skin care routine.
