But before start applying the masks on your face, you should steam your face firstly, the steam causes sweat which opens up the pores, you can also add a few essential oils, because they can help to clean, condition and heal the skin, and they are really relaxing. Next bring your face to the steam and cover your head with a towel and make sure that you’re not close enough to avoid burning your skin, and just relax and stay comfortable, for about 15 to 20 minutes.
