I love a good, simple facial. It’s the easiest thing you can do to brighten and clear your complexion. So once a week I wash my face, grab my favorite essential oil and head for the electric kettle. Once I boil the water and add my favorite scents, I hold my face over the bowl for 5 minutes while covering my head with a towel to trap the heat. The steam opens my pores and the sweat clears out impurities.

For an extra clean feel, I gently exfoliate with my Clarisonic, but a washcloth also works wonders. Complete your at-home spa experience by splashing your face with cool water and applying a thin layer of oil or a lightweight moisturizer. Enjoy! ~Brandee
