  • Add a handful of dried herbs and flowers. I used this gorgeous blend: FIG + YARROW Spring Herbal Steam bought on BEAU.TEA.BAR.
  • Add boiling water.
  • Throw a towel over your head, place cleansed face over the bowl, and enjoy the soft fragrance while the steam works its magic.
  • Take a moment to recognize that these tranquil moments are precious.
  • After the steam cools (about 15 minutes or less), wash off impurities that rise to the surface of the skin with a gentle cleanser. Today’s pick: YULI Halcyon facial cleanser.
  • Follow with a mask of your choice to absorb any toxins. Today I used Osmia Organics Detox Exfoliating Mask.

My skin feels refreshed, purified, and clean. Plus the time doing something kind for myself nourishes my being. That allows me to be able to go out and care for others in a healthier, more fulfilled way.

What do you do to fill your cup?
