I was looking for a refreshing recipe and felt in the mood for mint. So I went to my personal recipe box for food, beauty and fun. I made a yummy cool Mint Julep drink with fresh mint. I also prepared a fresh facial steam.
I wanted to detox my pores a bit and give them a breather from makeup, pollution and more.
What you will need for this recipe:
1 bunch of fresh peppermint or spearmint leaves
1 gallon bottle of water poured into a pasta pot (pretend you’re making pasta)
1 glass Pyrex like bowl
Bring water to a boil and allow it to cool a bit. Pour this water into a bowl.
Crush up some great mint in your hands to let the aromatics come out.
Place the leaves on top of the water.
Place a tea towel over your head allowing your face to be uncovered.
Keeping a safe distance allow the steam 💦 to reach your face.
You’ll start to notice a bit of moisture to your facial skin and feel like you’ve been “working out”. That’s good!
Your pores are getting a workout,dead skin will slough off a bit and your your skin will love you for it all.
You can enjoy this facial steam once a week. I like to do it for at least 10 mins. until the water cools to lukewarm and your face is glows & dewy.
Do not put your pretty face in the steamy water. Just near it and allow the steam to rise and meet your face.
Have you ever tried a recipe like this?
