Herbal Acne Remedies: Parsley and Mint Facial Steam

<p>A facial sauna made with fresh parsley (<em>Petroselinum crispum</em>), rosemary (<em>Rosmarinus officinalis</em>), mint and lemon cuts through oil and deep-cleanses skin. Use a facial sauna once or twice a week, and follow with a gentle facial scrub or a mask.</p>
<ul>
<li>2 quarts water</li>
<li>½ cup fresh parsley, coarsely chopped</li>
<li>1 sprig fresh rosemary</li>
<li>¼ cup fresh mint, coarsely chopped</li>
<li>½ lemon, sliced</li>
</ul>
<ol>
<li>Place water, herbs and lemon in a large pot, cover with a lid and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and steep for 5 minutes.</li>
<li>Place pot on a table and remove the lid. Using a large bath towel, make a tent over your head and the pot. Steam your face for 10 minutes, using care to not burn yourself. Finish with a gentle facial scrub or mask.</li>
</ol>
