Gather your supplies, distilled water and your essential oil. We love using tea tree oil as it helps calm congestion. It is important to use distilled water as tap water can clog your steamer with harsh mineral buildup.

Once you have finished your steaming rotations, use a towel to dry any excess water on your face. Once the skin is completely dry, follow with a toner to ensure pores are completely clear of dirt and debris. Finish with a vitamin C serum for a truly radiant glow.
