Growing up in Germany, facial steams were part of my weekly routine. Both my mom and grandma swore by steams. Not only is steaming great for stuffy noses, it is also an excellent beauty treatment. Steaming helps us sweat out skin impurities. I like to incorporate weekly steaming  into my regular beauty and wellness routine.  It’s a quick, simple and inexpensive treatment that can be done within the comfort of my home. Doing this, however, makes me feel as though I’m undergoing a fancy spa treatment. Win win!

While there are many benefits to just steaming with plain water, the addition of tea bags to a steam bath makes it even more therapeutic.

DIY Steaming:

Tea

Bowl

Boiling water

Towel

Boil some water and pour it over the tea bags. I use all kinds of tea flavors for my steam. At night, I enjoy steaming and drinking Bigelow Benefits  Chamomile and Lavender Herbal Tea. This herbal blend of  beautiful and fragrant flowers helps me slow down and take a moment to relax. The flavor and aroma of this tea are so beautiful; probably my favorite combo.  I like to drink this tea right before bed time.

Create a towel tunnel and steam for about 5 to 10 minutes. Make sure your towel is large enough to trap the steam. Also, cleanse your face of makeup and skin care products before steaming.

When you’re done, your face will feel hydrated and soft; your mind relaxed and calm. I like to finish with a splash of cold water.  Afterwards, I apply a high-quality moisturizer. For a full evening of skin pampering, I exfoliate before steaming. This leaves my skin feeling refreshed, clean, and detoxified. I finish my pampering with a nice cup of Bigelow tea.

Did you know that tea is the most frequently sipped beverage worldwide after water? I’m not surprised. Drinking tea is part of my everyday wellness routine, and I absolutely love it. In fact, I’m drinking a cup of tea, as I’m typing this. I choose a different tea flavor almost every day. It depends on what mood I’m in and what type of “support” I need that day. The Benefits line has seven new teas with flavor combinations including Turmeric, Chili & Matcha Green Tea, Lemon & Echinacea, Cinnamon & Blackberry, Blueberry & Aloe, etc.

  • All natural green and herbal teas are made of premium quality
  • Exceptional flavor
  • Non-GMO
  • Gluten free

I’m happy my local Kroger carries the Bigelow Benefits line. Today, I drank a cup of Benefits Lemon & Echinacea Herbal Tea. I love the lemony taste and benefits of this tea. This tea is so refreshing and bursting with flavor.
