How to Have a Peppermint Steam Facial. You don't always realize the toll that everyday stress, along with dust and air pollution, take on your face. However, taking a regular steam facial will help to clean the pores and bring dull skin back to life. Peppermint facials are especially effective for oily skin.

Have a Peppermint Steam Facial

Step 1

Fill a large saucepan with fresh water and bring it to a boil over high heat.

Step 2

Pour the water into a mixing bowl and toss in 2 tbsp. of fresh mint leaves.

Step 3

Cover the bowl with a kitchen towel and let the peppermint steep for about 10 minutes.

Step 4

Wash your face in your usual way.

Step 5

Lean over the bowl and drape a large bath towel over your head to keep the steam from escaping. Close your eyes and inhale slowly as the steam penetrates your pores.

Step 6

Keep your face in the steam for 8 to 10 minutes if you have very oily skin, and approximately 3 minutes for dry skin.
