Facial steaming has been a popular method for decades to open and cleanse pores. By allowing the face to sweat and release dirt and oils, it naturally detoxifies the skin, resulting in a healthier complexion. You can make a strong face treatment at home without buying an expensive gadget. In this blog, we will guide you on how to facial steam and discuss its incredible benefits.
Benefits of Facial Steaming
As previously mentioned, it helps open the pores, allowing for a deeper cleanse. But did you know that it also improves circulation?
When the skin's pores open because of heat, blood vessels expand, resulting in increased blood flow to the skin. This process helps to deliver oxygen and nutrients to the skin's surface, resulting in healthier-looking skin. Facial steaming may also help with acne-prone skin, as it helps in unclogging pores and removing impurities. Think of it as your own personal home spa!
Facial Steaming Guide
You will need:
- Boil water and fill the glass bowl.
- Add a tablespoon of the tea blend of your choosing into the water.
- Allow the mixture to steep for a few minutes.
- Once the steam has cooled down slightly, place your face above the bowl to steam your face.
- Place a towel over your head that traps the steam.
- Do not get too close to the water to prevent burning.
- Keep your face above the steam for about 10 minutes.
- Optional: For a self-care bonus, you can apply our crystalized honey Original Body Scrub for cleaning and exfoliating. Apply with circular motions and gently remove with warm water on a wash cloth.
- Rinse your face with cool water to close the pores.
Tea Benefits for The Skin
The key to a successful facial steam is the tea blend that you choose. At Bee Inspired, we design our Good Night Tea and Beautea to be multi-purpose. They are suitable for facial steam, drinking, and other uses.

The Ancient Practice of Facial Steaming
Facial steaming has been used for centuries to achieve healthy, glowing skin. It not only detoxifies your skin by unclogging pores but also helps to soothe and calm irritated skin, promote collagen production, and improve blood circulation. By adding Good Night Tea to your facial steam ritual, you can enhance the benefits of facial steaming. The tea contains ingredients such as chamomile, rose petals, and lavender, which are known for their anti-inflammatory properties and help to soothe and calm the skin.
How to Steam with Good Night Tea:
Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
To facial steam, you'll need a glass bowl, a kettle or pot to boil water, a large bath towel, and 5-8 teaspoons of Bee Inspired Good Night Tea. Set up your glass bowl in the position you will be doing your facial steam. Place it on top of a hand towel for safety. Make sure your table and chair are comfortable enough for you to remain seated for a 10-15 minute session, sitting over the glass bowl.
Step 2: Prepare
Wash your face to be sure to remove all makeup. Pat dry. Bring 4 cups of water to a boil. While waiting for the water to boil, add 5-8 teaspoons of Good Night Tea into the bottom of your glass bowl. Once the water has boiled, pour it over the loose leaf tea, filling it about 3/4 of the way.
Step 3: Treat
Drape your bath towel over the back of your head, lean forward over the bowl, and cover your head and the bowl with the towel allowing the steam to seep in. Inhale the steam and take breaks as needed. Make sure that the water and steam are not too hot and test them before you begin.
Step 4: Finish
Once you are done steaming, gently rinse your face with lukewarm water and pat it dry. Follow your treatment with your skincare routine to lock in moisture and keep your skin hydrated.
When to steam:
Facial steam is recommended weekly as this is a great way to deeply cleanse your facial skin. Discontinue steaming if your skin becomes irritated. If you have senstive skin start by steaming for only five minutes, and rinse. Over-steaming can strip the skin of its natural oils.
Steaming with Good Night Tea is an effective and easy way to achieve smooth, supple, and radiant skin. With just a few simple steps, you can create your own spa experience at home. Be consistent with your practice to see the best results and look forward to radiant skin!
