concept of cleansing is, removing all the dirt from the face which may have accumulated due to the
surrounding, pollution, use of makeup products, etc.

Now that exfoliation is done, we move on to the next, which is steaming. A very important part of the skincare routine, which is generally, ignored the most.
Steaming helps in melting the hardened oil in the pores, which facilitates the smooth extraction of the blackheads and whiteheads.
To perform steaming you could use your home steamer.

PRO TIP: If you do not have any extracting tool you could simply exfoliate the skin following STEP 2.
Mask helps in drawing out the impurities from the skin, generating the calming sensation, and for nourishment and hydration.
HOW TO USE IT?

Mix a spoonful of raw or organic honey. Give a good mix of all the ingredients and make a thick paste out of it.
