Blow Off Steam

How about blowing some steam off like Anne Hathaway? The Dark Knight Rises actress has said that a strict regimen of steaming her face with a warm towel a couple times a week improves her complexion. Did you know that applying a moderate amount of steam and warmth onto your face can help you have better looking skin? After your washing your face at night, it’s best to apply a warm face towel onto your face for a couple of minutes. This will help open up your pores, letting dirt, oil and debris escape. This also helps your skin reap the benefits of any face mask or serum you use. Follow the steam regimen for one to four times a week.

*Tip: applying a few drops of peppermint or tea tree oil onto the steaming face towel will have a calming and toning effect.
