Jessica is a firm believer
in a stimulating facial steam at least once a week because of
all the benefits it adds to the overall health of the skin.
Jessica explains that not only does facial steaming add much needed
moisture to the skin, it also opens up the pores, and loosens debris
that has collected on the surface of the skin.
Rehydrating the skin through steaming helps to stimulate the cells
which, in turn, helps to improves skin tone and elasticity.
Jessica introduces the added benefit of a natural anti-aging skin care
treatment in her steaming facial rejuvenation recipe.
