I have fond memories of spending girl time with my Mom and my sweet sister Penny. Steam facials is one affair that we would often take part in which involved hanging our heads over a bowl of steaming hot water. My face would feel so amazing after the water vapors hydrated my face and my heart would feel joyful from silly conversations.
Here is the recipe for a homemade steam facial that you may want to try. Have fun mix it up and experiment with different flowers to come up with your own a version floral facial.
Flower Petal Steam Facial
The power of flowers should not be taken for granted this summer. All of the flowers are in full bloom and do wonders to keep your skin soft and hydrated.
4 cups of Distilled Water
1/2 cup of Fresh Flower Petals (lilac, rose, pansy, camellia, or jasmine petals)
Bring water to a boil and then remove the pot from the heat, carefully transfer to a large bowl then and add the flower petals, stirring gently. Let the mixture rest for five minutes then lean over the pot, keeping your face about 12 inches off the surface of the water, and drape a towel over your head to trap the steam. Sit for five to ten minutes over the stem then rinse your face with cool water and pat dry.
